Happy Sunday! I am getting ready to watch the season finale of Survivor (Go Russell!). So I had plans to be super productive this weekend and get lots of layouts done HOWEVER I got a case of OCD and starting re-organizing my scrapbook supplies. I have so many chipboard alpha's and a year ago I got the idea to sort all the alpha's by letter cause that would make it easier to find what I need. This weekend I decided that it would be easier to have them sorted by color, like so many of my other things (like my brads and buttons!!!). After a day of organizing, I got back into the swing of things today and completed 3 different layouts...
My first layout is titled WiNNERS and this is my take on the challenge at How Much Is Too Much. The requirements were:
- 12 Buttons
- 1 Word Title
- 1 Funky Border Strip or Punch
- 9 Stickers (this can include your title alpha)
- 7 Patterned Papers
- 1 Stamp
This layout is for the SPCC Color Challenge using the ScrapRoom Blog sketch. This is an emotional layout for me. Four years ago, while working at Eastern Washington University, one of my students, Sara died in a tragic rafting accident. Two of the hardest things I have ever done in my life is tell Sara's RA, JoBeth that she had died and then taking her parents to her room to pack up her things. Sara was such a great person and this will be my way to remember her... Take a look
Lastly, I am just want to show off the layout I made for my boss. She loves Wizard of Oz (just like myself) and I thought it would be fun to give her some art for her office. I tried to use as many images that reflect the overall story... One of my favorite things is the tiny strips of black & white fabric I put at the bottom. It is suppose to be the shriveled up legs of the Wicked Witch of the East. Of course I love the ruby red slippers too!!!
That is all for now... Have a wonderful night.
