I had a bit of a brutal return to work - 5 days, 50 hours. I love my job though and everything went really well, so I am a little tired but happy to have two days off. Then, back at work for a day before a weekend off. Next week, my schedule should get back to normal - I work three 10 hour days Mon-Wed; then a short 5-6 hour day on Fridays !! Not bad huh?
Today, I am having a nice, quiet day with some scrapping, some reading, some cooking and watching a bit of tennis. No chores - I will think about those tomorrow LOL.
I want to share the 9th layout I made with my June Scraptastic kit - the Best Day of my Life kit :
Lately, I enjoy working with two 4 X 4 photos and putting them slightly askew on the page. They are generally 4 X 6 photos that I crop although I am getting the hang of printing IG photos in that format on my photo printer at home - slowly but surely LOL.
You may also notice that this page design is similar to a couple of other layouts I made this month. In fact, it is quickly becoming a favourite of mine and a go-to design. My style has been greatly influenced lately by Nancy Sinclair (kittyscrapper on You Tube) and nicolejones911 (Nicole uses the same name on pretty much all social media), Tracy Banks (mercytiara on You Tube and Scraptastic); and, of course Shimelle remains a favourite of mine. But there are so many great new You Tubers out there, it is a scrapper's paradise. By the way, if you have not joined Nicole Jones facebook group, head on over there right now - the inspiration and motivation are utterly amazing!
The supplies : I am already down to patterned paper scraps, but pretty much everything on the page does come from the kit and its add-on. I used the cut apart sheet in several different areas for the layering. The only things that come from my own add-on are :
- The chipboard hearts, camera and stars are from the Studio Calico Essentials line
- The alphas I used for the title are from Jillibean Soup's Alphabeans in Grapefruit pink
- There were some enamel dots in the add-on kit but I also added some from my own stash
