We made it through the first week of school, or part week anyhow! Only another 40 something to go.
I didn't quite make it back here yesterday as time ran away with me. We're having a mini
I've yet to tackle the coat closet.......almost afraid to venture in there!
Anyhow, I am here today and I have the second layout from my Two Scrapbook Friends DT Kit using the 'Ahoy There' collection from Carta Bella.
I mentioned in my first post here that I love the quality of Carta Bella patterned papers, and today's examples are no exception, but they do have the added bonus of including a Kraft patterned paper.........could it get any better?!
My page is also a tribute to my DH who doesn't get scrapped all that often, although he seems to have made a few more appearances lately!
Love You To The Moon.
Ooooh look at all that white space!
Yes, I'll admit, I was itching to fill it, but nothing seemed to work so I left it 'as is'.
The main design is obviously the variety of triangles both paper (which I stitched to the page) and chipboard (which I painted with acrylic paint).
I had a completely different title and idea for this page, but when I was flicking through my stash looking for something else, I came across a package of journal kinda tags from Jillibean Soup.
A new title was born!
Of course I had to use another of those lovely nautical wooden stars, and a touch of messy stitching worked well.
I've thrown this stuff on everything recently and I'm thoroughly enjoying using old stash in a new(er) way.
This time I applied it over a 'brush stroke' stamp and placed it here and there around the page.
I think that just about covers things so I guess it's time for me to get ready for work.
Have a great weekend and I'll see you next week,
