Photo Shoots and other Important Items

About a year ago, I had too much free time. So what did I do? Research photographers in the tristate area to do a couple shoot. Add in another year, with tons of cancellations and rescheduling, and S and I went on a photo shoot with the talented Alexis Hardy--who is also an awesome scrapper!

I documented the experience in the layout below:

I used my Studio Calico October kit for this one, and mixed the main and 2 of the add-ons (Watercolor and Still Life). Photo credit: Alexis Hardy.

Here's a close-up of the title:



Now I'm normally not a fan of purposely mispelling words--after all, I have frequently lamented that generations of children will grow up not knowing how to spell "doughnut", and I break out in hives when I see establishments with names like "Krazy Kakes" or what not. But for this layout, it just felt right (and I couldn't fit "photo" in the space:)).

And just because I feel like it, here are a few little pretties on their way to me soon, thanks to Two Peas' free shipping over $25 deal. (I came in at $26.99--extremely proud of myself for that!).

Some Mr. Hueys.....


And I bet these will be in a kit soon and then I'll kick myself, but for now, I just couldn't resist these Crate Snow Day brads:

And there you have it! Happy Friday, my friends!

What are your plans for the weekend? And do you have any pretties on their way to your door?

  1. Love this layout-- and that you confessed the REAL reason why you spelled "photo" that way. ;)
    Can we see more photos from the shoot?

  10. Fab layout. I am also obsessed with planning out portrait sessions with professional photographers. I've been planning our family photo for nearly a year now.
    So you're into misting? I'm not there... yet... . Did you change the colour of the alpha? I got white in my kit (but I only got the Still Life add-on).

  16. LOVE this layout, girl! And I hate the purposely misspelled names, too- it makes me cringe! I once heard someone say it's like classy spelled with a "k". lol!
