Today's main feature is a sketch challenge from Create with Connie and Mary. And look at me...another clean/white card AND I added Pacific Point without it being required. What's up with that?
I used paper from International Bazaar - cutting the design just to keep it interesting. For the mat on the "greeting" I traced the outside of the Apothecary Accent framelit and fussy cut it.
Now for my catch up items for the 31 Pages in 31 Days... with Lyssa Zwolanek
Day 7 - I've used the same layout that Lyssa did on her example, and I've used the same package of paper - but I've changed it up to be a "boy" page instead of a girlie page. I didn't know what sort of "accents" to use so I crumpled up a couple strips of paper, used twine and did some doodling around the pictures that were matted.... although it doesn't really show up in the picture.
When I saw Lyssa's layout and colours for Day 8 I automatically thought of this picture of my dad taken around either Banff or Jasper in the mid to late 60's. The colours and the images from Nature Walk were perfect. I also added trees from Lovely as a Tree. I copied all of Lyssa's elements...right down to distressing the piece of balsa wood that I'll add words to later.
Finally - Day 9's page - TODAY!!!! Woo Hoo!!!
Again, I kept everything the same as Lyssa's example on this one too except that I added the little snowflakes around the edges. I guess I've done so many clean cards lately that I need to fill in the empty space on other projects.
That's it for today. I have some chores to do and then I'm going to go shopping for a toy or two. We're babysitting Elliot tomorrow night and he's requiring some stabler toys to pull himself up on.
I can't wait.
Hope things are happy and healthy in your corner of the world.
