Self-Soothing

It's amazing how much crafting you can get done when you don't have phone or internet service to distract you!  No kidding, the wind blew our phone line right off the pole, and it took 5 days to finally get it fixed.  Good thing we had no 911 emergencies!

So, this is the first page I made with my October Counterfeit Kit, and I really love it!  I used this sketch from Let's Get Sketchy:
and some of the Basic Grey PB&J papers from my kit.  I cut the navy border, doilies, and title with my (brand new) Cameo (eeeeeee!!!!)  I also added some of those cool labels from my kit - these print out great, and you can find them here and here.  Here's a few close-ups of those clusters and the journaling:


The doilies were cut from plain cream cardstock, then I inked them with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink (hey, did you hear that all those limited edition inks from Ranger are now part of the Distress Ink palette?  This Picked Raspberry is so bright and vibrant, it kind of makes my mouth water, yum!)

Yep, my Brenna Bean is a real thumb sucker, and she twirls her hair while she's doing it - a couple of times her fingers have gotten stuck in her hair!  I had her out and about once, and a lady saw her doing this and said it's a sign of intelligence - maybe that she can do two things at once?  I don't know, I just think it so adorable!

Thanks for looking, and I should have more to post soon - I'm on a bit of a roll at the mo'!

  6. Hahaha! Totally agree with you about how much time one spends on the internet - just to think about how much more crafting I could do if I wasn't sat at my laptop :/

    Love this page, Brenna is soooo cute, and the colours are lovely and bright, oh, and great clustering Roxy :)

    Hugs, Carole xxx
