LOAD began yesterday. Layout a Day. Why do I do this? It gives me an excuse to take time for ME each and every day. So, for the months that I participate in LOAD, I scrap a bit more and read a bit less. Today I did not follow the prompt and instead did my own thing.
We recently went to Hawaii. Our family's first time there. This is us just after arriving. 12 hours of travel, 3 hour time change, but still smiles on our faces. Most of our faces anyway. I used sketch #18 form the My Scraps & More April Sketch-a-Thon. Have you been over there? Their site is fantastic. Lots of inspiration. I changed it up a bit by using a larger photo. The title and embellishments are moved as a result. Great sketch, easy to use.
I also used some stuff from the JBS Mercantile April kit. I wanted to see what everyone was raving about, so I decided to check it out and purchase a kit. Good mix of papers, even things I can't get at my LSS. I like the exclusive stuff, but I don't see the need to subscribe at this time.
Supplies-JBS Mercantile April kit papers, Wood-Citrus twist, Studio Calico, Freckled Fawn, sequins-Citrus Twist, Doodlebug Designs, alpha and clips-Freckled Fawn, Washi-October Afternoon, stamp-Kate Spade, enamel dots-MME, mist-Studio Calico
Next. This makes me smile.
I am working on the photos of my son's bar Mitzvah. Slowly but steadily, I am making progress. This bis an absolute favorite photo. It is so rare to get a beautiful photo of them together. Pretty much nothing else needs to be said.
I used sketch # 79 from My Scraps & More. I used a larger photo, so I change the orientation of the papers, moved the title, created my own place for embellies. A cool sketch to use and can see myself using it again.
Thanks for stopping by. More new things to come as I attempt to create a Layout a Day, or as we say at Get it Scrapped, a Page a Day
