Just a quick and easy layout to get back into the swing of scrapbooking again! I've been busy helping the owner of my lss close up her store for good (and losing my job there in the process), so I haven't been in the mood to scrap - but I have been buying up lots of goodies to tide me over since there are no local stores near me anymore. Sometimes when I'm in "buy" mode, I just get too overwhelmed to create anything. I have to put everything away and let things sit before the creative juices start flowing again. So, I used a bit from my new September Studio Calico kit, with some bits and pieces I bought from my lss, and some bits I had laying on my desk and created this simple layout which took 30 minutes to make! Really a record for me since it usually takes a whole day of deliberation just for one layout! I used several pieces from The Pier Crate Paper line - love the colors and designs so much from this!
I had the diecut anchor piece sitting on my table for over a month and was glad to use it here after spraying it with some gold Heidi Swapp mist. I also used the mist to splatter across my page. I could easily use at least one of those chipboard frames on every layout I make - thank goodness I ended up up with three packs of them!! ;) That little yellow shiny button like piece is a brad sticker from a fabulous website called Pinkfresh Studio - you need to go check out all her cool items she has for sale! I'll be uploading some layouts and cards I designed for Kinnari using her products tomorrow. She is having a great giveaway every day this week on the Pinkfresh blogpot so go try and win some of her goodies!! The giveaway today is a couple of sets of these brad stickers!!
