Just a quick post for a quick page I whipped up last night and this morning. I'm heading to Williams Lake for the week for Nolan's hockey camp, so I won't be posting at all, but hopefully I'll be able to leave comments for you all still. Last year Jason took his holidays at this time, and we made a family trip out of it, and he did all the skate lacing, etc. But this year I'm on my own with the three kids. Well, I do have grandparent support, but still, it could be quite the challenge. I get to go to my fave LSS, Creative Accents, though! That's right, Tara, I'm coming to see you, so heads up! I'll be indulging my patterned paper fetish! Is there such a thing? If there is, I'm definitely afflicted! Case in point, I just HAD to have this piece of Basic Grey pp when I saw it, hmmm, three years ago (I even remember where I purchased it, see, I've got it bad!), and then I hoarded it and never used it! I resolve that from now on, I'm only going to buy a piece of pp for a project I have in mind or to match specific photos. Haha, let's see how long that lasts!
I really loved this sketch from Sketchy Thursdays when I first saw it, so I thought I'd better get in on the action.
It came together really quickly because I kept the embellishments very minimal. How do you like my homemade banner? I think that's my favorite part! I just used some background stamps, pink paper circles, and baker's twine. And I think I made a visual triangle of pink with the patterned paper, which wasn't exactly intentional, but whatever! I've had this page concept in mind for a while, because whenever we try to get a family photo, whatever the situation, it just never works out perfectly. It doesn't matter to me, though, I love the outtakes just as much as the good shots! Enjoy your week, everyone, and I'll see ya when I get back from my "holiday"!
Supplies: Basic Grey, Kaiser, and Beary Patch patterned paper, Creative Memories pink paper, Close to My Heart cardstock, ink, and stamps (Intrinsic Backgrounds, Noted Backgrounds, and Picture Perfect), baker's twine, staples
