Well, I managed to SQUEEZE out 2 more layouts before I turned into the veritable pumpkin.
Here's my 123 monthly layout. I found this quote while waiting for my Brow Wax at The Brow and Skin Studio (Sherrill is fantastic) in "O" magazine.....yes, I know, BLERK...but it's the only mag she has...and it's pretty handy for the quotes.
I found the fabric at Skafs and I think it's a quilting design. I bought it by the panel. There's about 5 designs on the panel and they were variations of green. This one was the coolest, although the one with the Chinese characters comes a close second.
These clear Maya Road blossoms from Scrap Therapy were awesome!! Easy to paint, easy to staple and easy to add rub-ons.
The chipboard flourish is a Scraplet one from Inkredible. It's massive! And wide enough to add the obligatory journaling.
I made it though to the second round of the Scrap Therapy Design Team comp. This challenge was based on the 123 concept. Had to use 3 or more photos, emobssing and buttons. Everyone's choosing buttons lately....I had to go to Spotlight this morning and find some. Luckily I found these Italian beauties!!!
Cost a bomb but the layout turned out well.
Now I just need to find enough people to vote for me to get to round 3 (hehe)!!!! Lots of great talent, so voting will be tight again this round.
Builder is back on track after going AWOL for a couple of months. I hope to get a phone call next week to say plans are finished and we can have a look. I really thought we'd have started by now, but he's lucky I've "leaned" to be patient in my old age!!
Got ATCs from the swap at Bon's Scraps and they're gorgeous (will upload later, blogger naughty), and I posted the chipboard swap packs off to Sonia at Forever Always, and need to get cracking on the ATC swap at Scrap Therapy next week. Have fallen behind but thankfully a new month begins tomorrow and can start afresh!!
Sadly, cancelled my membership at the gym. Just not getting there in the mornings because it was just bedlam when I got home. Needed to keep the mood calm in the mornings and the gym had to give. Luckily though, Karen is going to donate a visit pack when I finally get this fundraiser off the ground for AEIOU.
Happy Father's Day
