the answer is a lot. why dont i get up early more often? really? owait, bed is nice at 8am too. grrr. ok well, i'm at the store. getting all kinds of goodies together for many many many fun make & takes i need to plan like yesterday. we have my monthly technique ATC coming up friday, national cardmaking day on the 2nd, and then the Crop for Cure make & take which will be amazing to work on. so many cute things. i think i will get my sewing machine out for at least one of these. i'm in the mood for some stitching today. this weekend i managed to get started on a a few other projects. fall is going to be mega fun for my crafties. i have a big series planned for the crop spot so now i can take my paper ideas and put them on my pumpkins.
i did manage to finish and photograph at least ONE layout last night. here i am thinking about fall, BUT i could not refuse October Afternoon's Seaside line. so so so cute and simple. perfect for photos of a little boy i know who loves the beach! rain or shine. it does not matter. that kid loves the sand and water.
every layout needs a little something shiney imo. this is sometimes difficult if we're not using glitter. BUT i love my glssy accents these days. it really does dress up any paper by just enhancing a print with a bit of glossy accents. here i filled in the polka dots by adding a drop of glossy accents and letting it dry. so easy!
now i just need to get done at the store and back home. i have a poodlie mini album started that is screaming for me!
