LOAD512-Day 2

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

No, I did not forget about Day1.  I did it yesterday, but I can't post it yet because...I will be using it for the Mother's Day Blog Hop this Fri and Sat, May 4 & 5.  Please join in!  We'll be starting at Amanda's blog

But back to today.  Lain is calling today 'Wicked Wednesday', and we had to create a LO with NO PHOTOS.  Not sure where I was going to go with this.  Well, I spent some time on Club CK this morning, and found my inspiration in 2 challenges.  I used the May Sketch it Out sketch by Ashley.  Once I had my ideas down, I found that the May/June Issue Challenge #1, use staples.
This is not how I thought I would be using the sketch, but it really gave me a way to save these emails from my son's teacher.  I copied and formatted them into a word doc then printed them on white CS.  The background CS is SEI and the rest of the PP and embellies are EP A Boy's Life.  I used the Making Memories staples as photo corners around my printed emails, then also added them on the journaling strips and near the small clusters.  I added a touch of Mister Huey white mist at the edge of 3 corners.  They felt naked to me.  I thought this particular stitch kept the LO fun and youthful, because the words are all about a little boy. I'm thinking of going this to his teacher as an end of year gift.  Let me know what you think!

One last thing I need to mention!  You should really check out Thinking*Through*Design all this week.  Big changes are going on over there and I wouldn't want you to miss out on the excitement!
