I had a lot of fun with this layout! I'm really loving the mix of papers here, very different than what I would normally use. One of the challenges over at Counterfeit Kits is to use sketch #189 from Creative Scrappers to make a layout using our January kit. Here is the sketch:and here's a bit of a close up of some of my embellishments and machine stitching:
I love this photo of me and Ailis, it really shows her playful nature! I wanted to write a heart felt note to let her know that she's the one that cheers me up whenever I'm feeling blue, but maybe I'll save that for another day, and another layout, haha! I left the journaling at this: "Every day with you is a party. Just want to say... It's as clear as day. You deserve a pat on the back." The first sentence can be treated as the title, and I cut individual words out of an old book and inked them with Distress Ink (not sure if you can see that bit). The other bits are cut from a piece of Echo Park paper. I tried my hand at a visual triangle with the Prima canvas key, clock, and dress form - did I succeed? Looking at it now, I think I may go back and put a pale blue half-circle under the key with the date - first I'll have to find the date, though! What do you think?
Anyway, happy Monday and thanks for looking! I'm feeling optimistic that this is going to be a good week, not sure why, but let's go with that feeling for a bit!
