Scrappy Sunday

So it seems that Blogger ate my comments from my most recent post. (Please regurgitate them, blogger! please?) But that's besides the point.

Today is one hectic day--I just attended a community women's brunch (where I won a sushi set, woohoo!), and I have two more events to hit up today. Not to mention exercising, menu planning, and laundry. So I'll keep this short and sweet!

I created this layout with the Studio Calico March kit, Into the Woods.

The colors in this kit aren't my usual--very earthy, with lots of pops of green and orange. But that's what I love about working with kits! I work with a much wider range of colors than what I would choose my own (which would be pink....and yellow.....and aqua:)).

Since the kit had a more earthy tone to it, I decided to finally scrap the "old time style" sepia photos we had from Hershey Park.

I love the KI Memories calendar papers (and had an extra sheet to play with), so I used it as my background paper on this layout. I then pleated and stapled the woodgrain fabric strip, layered the labels and stickers, and added the final touches. I misted the chipboard stars to add more color.

There's nothing terribly deep or profound going on in this layout, but I love it--because it reminds me of a fun day with my husband. It makes me smile:)

What is YOUR favorite layout right now? Link me up!


  1. I love that page and those pics are awesome! Those calendar pages were the stuff for sure. Here is a new fave, it's a page I made about getting published in ST and a story they did about it in my local paper.

  2. I love those papers! And your layout is so pretty :)

  3. Love these LO's!! My fave LO is one I did this week for Sketchy Thursdays http://creationsbychrista.blogspot.com/2011/05/sketchy-thursdays-512-kiss.html

  4. Love all the green here. Still trying to figure out how to make best use of that paper.
