i have a layout share today, from the september issue of creating keepsakes.
as seen in the September 2011 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine. copyright creative crafts group. posted with prior permission from the publisher.
for this assignment, i was asked to use a themed collection, to do a non-themed layout. i'm really big on this idea. that just because a collection is geared towards a particular theme, doesn't mean you can't use it for everyday layouts. i decided to use bella blvd's cute pet collection for my layout. now, we don't have pets. you could say, that pets are the reason we don't have pets. alyssa is allergic to them, so it's not something we'll ever have to consider.
when i first created this layout, i debated putting an "X" over the cute little doggie. like saying "no dogs allowed". i'm glad i didn't keep that, since he's too cute to cover up :)
did i ever mention that i bought stock in these doodlebug loopy letter stickers? love them! not usually on their own. but paired with chipboard letters, they're so fun!
i'm desperately trying to get back on track, after coming home from CKC last weekend. i had such a great time, and i'll have to blog about it later. usually, i can swing a day off, when i get back, to sort of re-adjust myself. that didn't work out this time. which means i worked the 2 days before i left for texas, then spent 5 days traveling, teaching, and working my tush off, and then i worked 3 straight days after that. let's just say i arrived home at 10:30pm, on sunday night. and i had daycare kids here by 7:30am on monday morning. including a 5 month old, and a 20 month old that isn't feeling well. i'm SOOOO looking forward to having tomorrow off from the day job :)
