Sorry it's been so long again, but life has been crazy here! I think the kids have been in school two days this month, what with pro-D day, teacher strike, and spring break, and it's putting a serious cramp in my crafting schedule! I've also been reading some really good books - might be time for a book review pretty soon.
Did you see this inspiration photo for the March Challenge at Seriously Creative Challenges?
Oh my gosh, I love it! I had just the perfect photos for this one, and I looooove the way this layout turned out:
The background paper started out cream, and I inked it, stamped it, and sprayed it, not to mention the handmade chevron pattern made from scraps and stitched together - it was a time consuming process, but a lot of fun too! Remember those ghost letters from Heidi Swapp that came out five or more years ago? Well, I have almost a full pack of them so I painted the edges for the title and stitched them on with embroidery floss. Here's a close-up of the top corner, where you can see a bit of the shine from the Perfect Pearls Mist:
I sure hope you'll join us this month! This was my first monochromatic green page, and I love the result, so give it a try, and as always, there's a prize to be won!
When I was in my self-induced pinterest coma, I did manage to make this SMASH page about Brenna's birthday:
When I bring her around town or to different play groups, everyone thinks she's so cute and wonderful, but man, she's a stinker! So much energy and just wants to assert her independence all the time, it's exhausting, but I love her to bits!
And a quick mention of some blog candy you may want to check out:
If you like Magnolia and Tickled Pink stamps, you really need to follow Eulanda's blog, she's the master with Copics! And she's freakin' hilarious, too! Definitely a Cariboo gal at heart!
Well, I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! I'm counting down the days until the kids go back to school, and desperately trying everything I can think of to keep them busy. Ailis just went on a scavenger hunt with Nana - I thought they'd be out for at least an hour, but it turned out to be a 15 minute thing, sigh. Maybe we'll make some banana bread!
