So happy to start a new term on The Studio Challenges design team. Amanda announced the new and returning team members today and also that we will be going back to the original format of weekly layout challenges. There's no challenge for this Sunday as we make the transition but instead she shared a fave layout of each of the team members. If you lift one of the layouts and link it up to this post, you could win a gift certificate to The Scrap Rat Shop! If you haven't checked out the cool mix of vintage and new items, and the fantastic monthly kits in that shop, you should.
So, I'll leave you today with a layout I made last week. This one features my daughter at her dance recital in June. With the exception of the chipboard letters and the pink tape, this is all Pebbles, Inc.
Here's a close up of the flowers. I wove some strips of the patterned papers then ran the little panels through my Big Shot. I stacked the cut circles, smashed them a little for dimension then added a button to finish them off:
The weather has been gorgeous and sunny here. We've been dodging big storms in our town lately and I can't remember the last time we had a rainy day. I could use one so I don't feel guilty about staying in and doing 'inside' stuff. Hate wasting a good summer day! This weekend I purged the stash. I have eliminated a huge stack of paper, along with a truckload of other stuff. Need to get a garage sale on my calendar asap! Getting ready to start a new job so I'm feeling the need to get everything all squared away here at home. Time is going to be scarce in the weeks to come. But that is a good thing...
Thanks for stopping by.
