A Couple of Things

It's Wednesday!  We are halfway to the weekend. This week has been quite busy. I've been up to my neck in deadlines. Hoping to catch up on everything today and maybe even get ahead of the game. This time of the year is always hectic.  But, I'm looking forward to holing up in my scraproom and having a bit of fun today.

Here are a couple of pages that I haven't shared yet. This first one is one of my newest faves. I used a mix of Crate goodies on here. The woodgrain paper is from Pretty Party and the embellies are all from Storyteller. The story behind this page is Ryan being on the phone. That's the newest thing with him and his buddies. Topics of conversation are typically about Skylanders strategies, Minecraft or something to do with Lego Ninjago. It is so cute. Reminds me of the days I used to spend on the phone with my friends when I was a kid.
 I cut the title and camera with my Silhouette. The flower was also cut from it. I love that thing!

To make the threads on the page, I cut the paper very closely with the scissors. This curled the paper.

Then, I just rubbed a gluestick over the page and stuck the pile of curls onto it. Once I adhered my embellishments and photos, everything stayed in place.

This next page uses WP new line Girl L@nd. I wanted to use it on a masculine page, so I chose mostly the purples, aquas and greens on it. Jen Jockisch is our GDT for the month, so I was inspired by her style when I made this.

 I tried to do lots of layering and adding bits and pieces like she does.

I cut this fun arrow and the polka dot paper with my Silhouette, too. Adding them with foam adhesive really gave them some fun texture. I am addicted to foam adhesive.

That's all for today. Hope you are having a great day. Thanks for stopping by!

I just adore the first layout - love how you used the camera die cut. And it made my smile. My almost-7 year old lives and breathes Skylanders.
