Hi there, people -
So I'm finally caught up on reading all the blogs I missed when the internet was down. Seeing all the CHA peeks from various companies is getting me pretty geeked to head out to Chicago in a couple weeks! If you've seen anything particularly awesome, let me know!
A week ago, I spent a lovely Sunday with Liz at Scrappy Chic, where we cropped the day away. I whipped out 4 layouts and 3 cards -- not too shabby!! Let's do a couple kid-friendly layouts today, shall we?
Hey, it's a "boy-my-godson-is-cute" layout! And so he is. This also happens to be a "someone-on-the-design-team-has-to-use-this-paper-guess-it'll-be-me" layout ;). Anyway, I kept the safari critters to a minimum, and the colors do actually work really well with the photos, so I ended up liking the result! I love it when a plan comes together. Those corrugated alphas are from Making Memories's Panorama line, and I like 'em even though they didn't want to stick on the textured cs. Other supplies: Jenni Bowlin alphas, Sassafras banner sticker, rick rack, tiny attacher.
Another cute-godson pic, along with a cute-husband and cute-pal this time. Avery had a lot of fun learning the rules of monkey in the middle and playing catch with those Velcro mitt things. I patchworked a bunch of papers and stickers and such to get the background the way I wanted it -- mostly Basic Grey Oliver, with some other goodies thrown in. Originally, the big Prima felt letters stood alone, but there wasn't enough contrast for my taste, so I added the little October Afternoon alphas. I think I like the result. Probably. A little more cluttered than usual for me, still.
Ok, off to do some grocery shopping and such.
Hello to Donna and Mema and anyone else from my family who discovered my blog this week :)
Mary, if you're reading, leave a comment, eh? :)
