hello Monday. how was your weekend? too short? yah... so monday is a day to work from home for me. and, for once, i really feel like working. i have some great ideas for tutorials over at the crop spot and they're mostly executed already! all i need is some good light for photos and to finish typing tutorials up. yay!
other than that, i have some pretty big projects going on. lets see. there's:
~finish kitting october's kit and finialize photos for the october reveal (most fun fall kit EVER!)
~wrap up details for november
~plan a DT shindig for the gals at MLO
~eat a banana
~work on contacts for starting a local branch of Shared Scraps (details to come)
~do a little purging and a little giveaway to match!
i know there is more, but these sound like good things to focus on. speaking of focus. i've been into 8x10" photos lately. love how they are so obviously the focal point of a layout.
i've been hording this pp from the girl's paperie for a good 6 months. not long in the grand scheme of things, but the simple fact it came out of my stash really says something. i dressed it up a little with a white grid overlay from hambly, some basic grey chipboard and a tiny bit of pink paislee to top everything off.
all around the layout i used my schmancy tim holtz ruler to mark holes and then punch them out using a 1/16" (or maybe it was 1/8") hole punch. then did a simple back to front threading of some american crafts ribbon! love this ribbon! its the printed woodgrain from their craft fair release like a year ago. such a great line!
ok. thats enough manufactures listed and babbling for me right now! :)
hope everyone has had a good jump start to their week! i have a feeling this week is going to be a good one!
