I felt like I was in the midst of construction while creating this layout. Paper trimmers were tearing paper, washi tape tearing mid pull, tape glider not cooperating...

But I manged to finish the layout. I wasn't "feeling" this once it was completed and went to my husband for his advice. Before I could even form the question, he was giving me praise and accolades that I couldn't give myself :)

Here is my layout using a sketch found at Let's Scrap

Supplies used:

  • blue cardstock - The Paper Studio textured cardstock stack, darks
  • printed paper - "Tools" by Karen Foster Designs
  • title - Mickey Cricut cartridge cut at 1.5" and white daisy CTMH ink
  • journaling card - Project Life
  • washi tape, green cardstock - from my stash
I am submitting this layout to the following challenges:

  8. So glad you were able to play along with the Let's Scrap sketch this month :) sometimes we have to say 'it's ok' when we aren't feeling it with our pages...it happens to all of us and it's better to have those photos documented then to spend too much time over papers and embellishments!
