OMG! It's almost June, how can that be?! Your challenge this week, in honor of the fifth month of the year is to create a layout that uses five products. Adhesive and your photos do NOT count! Use five different patterned papers, be bold, use paint, get messy and create a masterpiece... whatever inspires you, but the end result needs to have five different products! Have fun!
I realized after I scanned this in that my photo block was crooked... I guess that gives me another thing to add to my list of things to repent, my need for everything to be perfectly aligned. So, I left it askew, maybe I can change after all!
Since this one was all about me, I rejoiced in actually being able to go pink! Unfortunately, there are not enough occasions for me to us this... and I just got a yummy pack of pink stuff from Cocoa Daisy!The clock and time stamp are from InqueBoutique, and the frame stamp was 7Gypsies. And the coffee was delicious!
One of the things I enjoy doing for me is spending time with my dad. This is from the first Harley ride Dad and I went after Mom passed. The weather was beautiful and shopping was successful. We're doing another ride tomorrow. Yeah!
I used Snow Cap Adirondack Pigment Ink to stamp the Blackberries background on Boxer paper. My new fav ink!
I was in Houston this past weekend with Tom to celebrate our 14th anniversay. He had been there the entire previous week to work a trade show--as he has for the past 2 years over our anniversary--so this year, I went and joined him at the end for the weekend. We stayed with our friends, Robbie & Dana Reider, who will soon be moving back to Cincinnati. It was a good weekend, but VERY hot & humid. This was the first time that we left our kids at home, on their own, for a whole weekend, too! Kind of scary, but they seemed to have managed just fine. The layout is all digital (I seem to be able to get the digital ones done more quickly!!)
So this week, take your camera and go for a photowalk then scrap your walk! Pick your favorite place or somewhere in your neighborhood and shoot things of interest. For more info on photowalking go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photowalking.
So, stylish, I dunno, but it's a photo frame... well, ish. It's paper I cut out from the Rusty Pickle paper I bought at convention. I used my Crop-a-dile Big bite to set the grommets, if you read the directions it works really well! I love this picture of Jeremiah about to maul the camera!!
Here is my layout that I did for Jill of her beautiful girls. I used Bazzill Card stock, and patterned paper from DCWV "The Glitter Stack". I kind of liked scrappin' for somebody else, although it does add a whole layer of stress about whether the other person will like it or not!! Good challenge!
