It's late here so I won't keep you long. And I am bushed.......funny how doing nothing can make you so tired! I was scrolling thru the blogroll this morning and came across a post at Crafts 4 Eternity and found out that I was chosen as one of the top three this past week!!!!
WOOOT!! My little mini album seems to have been a hit :) It''s a great feeling to know that something you have put your heart into and worked hard on is liked by others :):) I know that all that really matters is if I liked it.....but it was my first one and the response has been awesome and has encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone more often !!
And I did that with the layout I made for Sketchy Thursdays challenge this week!!! I am so stinkin proud I am about to burst.....and those of you who don't know me won't get "why" But you will!!!
Anyone who has visited my blog before knows that there are time when I have a sketch to follow....even and AWESOME sketch.....something happens. Must come from the fact that I don't really believe in directions....lol. For some reason I was in a white space kinda mood today......and that my friends is where I stepped out of my box today and did the unthinkable......created a white space layout and then left it alone!!!!!!!! As a rule I detest white space and go to great lengths to clutter it up.
I came across a baggie of hearts I had cut with my cricut and some circles I punched and kinda played around and creat4ed these darling little flowers....so easy to make! I just put some adhesive on a small circle and then inked my hearts and placed them around the circle and added another circle and button to the top and TADA!!!!
And I also had saved the negative space bit the hearts came from....
I built a little cluster with a library card, some ribbon,photo of me, and the scrap........LOVE!!!!!
And added a little bit to the top corner...
My background is Basic Grey White Basics, patterned papers are Sassafras Apple Jack, The ribbon was a gift, as was the library card. The buttons are American Crafts, hearts cut with cricut and the letters are My Little Shoebox.
I'm also sharing this over at The Sisterhood of Crafters Flower Power challenge. Ok, not a ton of flowers but the ones that are here are too cute :)
I have been working on a Christmas project today that hopefully will be dry enough to photograph tomorrow....lol. And I am still trying to get as many challenge pages done as I can before this month ends.......catch ya tomorrow!
