I have a couple exciting things to tell ya, but first here is a layout I completed for our challenge at Seriously Creative Challenges:
I had a lot of fun making this project, getting inky and crazy with my January Counterfeit Kit. I was inspired by this sketch at Creative Scrappers:
At first I was going to make a circle out of patterned paper, but then I read Alison's blog and was inspired to try "painting" with toothpicks! I just dipped a few toothpicks into my bottle of Lindy's Stamp Gang mist, and scratched out a circle and outlined the stars.
Here's a couple of close-ups of my layout:
The titles and black stars were cut with the Cameo, then I backed them with patterned paper and washi tape respectively (that's my big word for the day!) The doilies were cut from another piece of patterned paper (Echo Park) and the hearts are Pink Paislee mistables (those things are awesome!!!) Oh yeah, I also made a frame out of washi tape for my photo.
I really miss the Yukon! Have I said that before? (Probably only a hundred times!) Anyway, if/when I ever go back there, I want to travel the Dempster highway again and see the Tombstone mountains. Now that I've documented this wish in a scrapbook layout, it is officially on my bucket list, which is the prompt for the Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs!
Okay, now for my big news! (No, I'm not pregnant, thank goodness!!!) I got the job!!! I'm pretty stoked, I will be working 20 hours per week as a rehabilitation assistant, which is the first real job where I'll be able to use my overpriced education - finally! Now I just have to figure out the daycare situation, which is easier said than done.
Well, that's it for now! Hope all my bloggy pals get some crafty time in this week!
