Don't get me wrong, I love, love, love the Design Teams I'm on. They have provided me the excuse to create more than anything. Yep, I'm that mom that struggles with carving out me time. However, I almost found it difficult to not have a challenge to be sticking to.
I visited my local scrapbooking store this past weekend to pick up a couple of albums for my 2013 pages. I might have picked up a few pieces of patterned paper. This layout using one:
I found these photos of my youngest coloring eggs last Easter. The color worked perfectly...and then I noticed they told a little "how to" story. Now to get busy!
I love banners, I'm not going to apologize. I know there many who are so over them, but I'm not. Lots of embossing-both the banner and letters are embossed with white powder.
I added a little doily. I wanted to give it some pattern so I cut a 2.5" circle from a scratch paper and used it for a mask. This way when I stamped using my Distressed Dots stamp, the dots only when in the middle of the doily. The "this is Awesome" strip came from the bottom of the 12 X 12--you know that part you always have to cut off! (LOVE THAT!) I added the stamped arrow to mimic.
I have a couple of layouts on the burner...just because! I hope you stop back to check them out.
