Layout: Who, Me?

Thanks for the heads up, Kay–hopefully this fixed it?

Hahaha! I found the other layout.  All the papers are Echo Park, and I just used the sticker sheet from the same collection, my punches, and some twine to dress up the layout a bit.

Cut my title block too big and had to get creative…  Probably should have just gotten rid of the frame…

TFL!  Love that I have captured both of these stories. Such cuties.

LO: Snowmageddon

I’m kind of secretly hoping we get a little bit of this this weekend.

I’m ready to be snowed in.  To be able to hole up at home, all four of us, and just be together, with no agendas or schedules or playdates or work.  This picture is about four years old–it was before we were parents, and it was just a crazy winter of foot-high snowstorm on top of foot-high snowstorm on top of another foot-high snowstorm.

I did this LO for a scraplift challenge–I scraplifted another board member, and she had scraplifted someone before that, and someone scraplifted mine, too–it all traveled in a big chain, and was all kept secret until the end of the month.  Then the challenge moderator posted the beginning layout, and every subsequent layout.  It is fascinating to watch what people chose to focus on in the design–what people kept, what they discarded, what came back into the design, even though they had no way of knowing it had been used previously, etc.

Used Crate Paper’s DIY Shop 6×6 paper pad.  Fussycut the ruler and bunting.  Added a bit of washi, sequins, bling, and distressing with my scissors. Still using up my HS ancient chipboard letters, which I love and will sorely miss when they are gone.  Just a nice, clean look to that font.  Jazzed up the the title a bit by substituting some Queen & Co. polkadotties for the Os and a big fat acetate snowflake for the first one in ‘snow.’  Cut down a photo box divider for the journaling card–will need to actually *journal* at some point.  TFL!

Movin’ on Up LO

This is from the same trip as the Let’s Go to the Park LO.  We were visiting a very non-baby-proofed house.  We spent a lot of time OUTSIDE the house, going to the park, visiting the Bass Pro Shop, eating out… But one of the few things Bubby could do while at our friends’ house was to climb the stairs.  And that’s what we did.  Well, he went up.  He hadn’t mastered down yet.  So over and over and over again, he would crawl all the way up, try to pet the very shy cat, and jump into one of our arms so we could carry him back down and start all over again.  Cutie.

Movin' On Up LO by VexedAngel

Faux stitching with a brown pen, mitred corners to make that green plaid paper go further (same $3 kit as the Impromptu Peekaboo LO), vellum overlay for the fun laser cut circle paper, and trimmed, stickled, matted, and popped stickers for embellishments.
