Anyway, some fun stuff today...
At 3pm today (CST I think), I'll have an article go up at Craft Critique about the EK Success Punch Revitalizer. Be sure to check it out!
Next, how about (yet again, ha) another layout! ;) Don't worry, I feel the "card craftiness" coming back, and while I'll still be working on my layouts it won't be selectively one or the other I think.
I actually had a hard time deciding which layout to show today because everything I've created with the June Commit 2 Paper kit I absolutely love. It's such a good combo of colors and embellishments that have been working so well with cute pics I have of Gwynie! But I figure they will all be shown eventually so I just had to pick one!
So how about this one - it was at the beginning of school last year. Brady started a week after Gwynie did (they do a week of testing for the Kindergarteners and then school officially starts for them), so this was his first day, and her "first day" of her second week of school. And I just realized, the date is wrong on this! It was actually 2008 not 09, I'll have to fix that before it goes in her book, oops.
So for the layout, I took some of the patterned papers/solid reverse sides and cut them into 1/2 in and 1 inch strips and randomly cut them at either 10 or 11 inches long. I stacked and layered them and then added pictures and a few embellishments. I love the way different colors peek through!
The journaling reads:
You are so confident and know exactly who you are and what you want to be in life. I love that you are only 10, but have it all figured out!
Of course she doesn't have it alllll figured out (HA!), but I love that she is so passionate already about the things she wants in life and how to get there. Ever since she was 2 years old she's wanted to be a Neonatal Nurse (baby nurse). At 2 she was watching the Labor and Delivery shows and was fascinated by it all. She was always alarmed when the baby was in distress, and always breathed a cute little sigh of relief when everything was ok. She's always loved babies and I know she's counting down until she can actually baby-sit a real live baby! :) (Um friends babies, not us - we are DONE, ha!)
Anyway, a super fun layout and it was super quick. I actually did this layout in about 45 minutes, and it only took that long because I kept cutting and rearranging the strips. ;) So that falls under the challenge #11. Finish a page in 45 minutes - for the 52 More Scrapbooking Challenges book. Sweet! Hope your weekend is a blast!
