Sorry I have been quiet for a while. This past weekend was a "packed" one for our family. We had Maddie's 5th birthday celebration, listened/watched General Conference and our biggest event....we had our dear Mitch home for the weekend! We were soaking up all the time we can with him during the 3 days he was here so I was absent from everything including the blog.
But now that things are back to "normal", I have a layout to share with all of you...
this was a fun layout I made with two challenges in mind- American Crafts blog challenge and the latest Pagemaps sketch challenge.
This page is also about the funny, wacky and off character things I sometimes do, just because. The journaling reads:
I see it all the time in blogs, facebook and myspace. Pictures of people jumping but I never realized it's an "asian" thing till Sam mentioned it. So with that, we had to do a jump shot! After all, it's what we do! April 2010
I used some City Walk papers here and I love those embossed flowers. I had to cut them out individually to make them stand out against everything else. I also love the bright colors of the paper. It cheers me up every time I use them. I also wanted to customize my title to match the bright yellow feel of the page so I inked my white thicker letters.
the sketch from Pagemaps shows that there is some stitching involved and because I don't have my sewing machine with me right now (so sad about that) I resorted to stitched rubons.
