Here are my layouts from yesterday:
This is almost a duplicate of Shimelle's layout. Well as close as I dared to get anyway with what I had to work with. I originally had little orange flowers on it, but changed them out for yellow and like it so much more. Oh, and yes, I have fixed that dropped N since I took the photo, but didn't notice it until after I had downloaded and cropped it!
In lieu of 'photo-booth' strip, I just joined two 3x4 photos. And since they didn't have a white border, there were in desperate need of a mat. So here it is. I had oh, so much more to say about these photos than would fit on journaling cards, so grateful for all that empty cardstock! But I have to admit, even though I love the colors the best and the subject matter the best, this is my least favorite of these 4 layouts - and GiGi's too. I may try this page again with the same supplies and photos and a different sketch just to see if that's the problem as I'm not sure right now what the deal is. And I definitely think it's important to know what the deal is when you just don't like something.
First let me say that as I am not in the swing of things just yet, I have two (yes, 2) rolls of washi tape to my name and they are both from the SmashBook line (I have a few rolls of deco plastic tape and cellophane tape as well but they are not as universal as most washi tapes are, nor as pretty). Also, at 9:00 last night I just did not feel like stamping anything at all, but then that part of the layout would have actually taken more time than completing the entire rest of it because of all the thought that would have had to gone into picking the right stamps, etc. So this is what it is. But the journaling is from GiGi's mouth to my hand - so it's kinda special.
Oh, and did anyone notice that I managed to get a flower, butterfly or bird (or 2 of the 3) into every. single. layout.; and there is some shade of 'teal' in 3 of the 4 layouts... gotta find my comfort zone somewhere when doing new things!
Must say that I may or may not get anything done today, as am paying dearly for all that work the last two days - I think my body is going on strike! But I'm gonna do my best, because I am definitely in my happy place. And this Remix class is working for me!
Find your happy place today!
