I am on a real layout kick lately... I am really enjoying working with the larger canvas of a 12x12 piece of cardstock, and I love to see my books filling up! I am so thrilled that Josie's scrapbook is becoming more and more complete; I was really beginning to feel like I'd never catch up, so doing these weekly posts has really served me well!
So, you know me and Crate Paper right? I sat down to make this layout, and I asked Shirley if she thought I could make one without using *any* Crate... she didn't think so. To be fair, neither did I! *wink*
But I dug through my stuff, and decided to pull out the Girls' Paperie stuff that I am hoarding. I really *really* miss this company... I've been hanging on to the things I have, because once they're gone, they're really gone, you know? I am sure you have *no* idea what I am talking about, right?
There's my Josie-girl. She was only about 10 weeks old or so here... that little baby smile makes my heart just swell!
I am completely obsessed with crepe paper these days... I just love the texture and dimension it adds... you'll be seeing it on a few things in the coming weeks, I promise!
You know what else I realized? You can use your most favourite, best stuff on a layout... you know, the stuff you don't want to just 'waste' on a card because the recipient might just throw it out? (Or is that just me?) Well, if you put it on a layout, you get to use it AND you get to keep it!
Thank you so much for popping in! I hope you're having a wonderful weekend... we're having such wishy-washy weather that finding things to do is getting tough... Not sure what the day holds, as the forecast seems to change hourly, but hopefully we'll find something fun!
