For a portion of today I tossed my to-do list to the side! Yup, thats so not like me but I needed the unstructured time to re-charge my batteries. I was able to create 2 layouts and I did it with mostly new products! I think I have a new found love for washi tape and bright bold colors that remind me of the 80's!
I dug into my newest kit, Daydreamer from Scrapbook Circle and I love what I found. So many bright and bold papers and embellishments! I added some new washi tape and some of Hambleys (both from Paper Issues) newest overlays to complete the layout! I am loving all the new products.
I was inspired by the April sketch from Artful Delight to create this layout. It gave my layout great balance!
This photos is such a sign of the times to me. Its funny how my son and his friends are drawn to the iPad! They could play it all day if I let them. Its part of their generation and I think there will be a day in their future where every kid will have one instead of text books! I guess he just preparing for the future :)
Wait, I have one more layout to share! I was on a roll with my free time!
I again started with my Scrapbook Circle Kit and with this layout I joined in the current challenge at Scapbook Circle, to use frames. I love frames as you can see from my framed Polaroid photo and I framed my title. There are even a few hidden frames under all the layering - can find them? Its like and eye spy hunt! :)
This kit was also perfect for another challenge I stumbled across at The Play Date Cafe! They challenged you to use this BRIGHT color pallet!
I loved creating this layout with such a bold color scheme! I had to add a few hints of black for good measure but that just meant I got to use another new tape!
Thanks for stopping by to take a peak! I think I might have to do toss my to-do list more often :)
