Good morning peeps!! I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend! I had a very uneventful weekend (which in my house is a AWESOME thing!) Today is Scrappy Monday over at My Creative Time! We were asked to pick a letter and then incorporate it into our layout!
For my layout, I chose the letter "P", pattern paper, punch, paint splatter, polaroid die (ok, I know that was 4! I went over one hee hee) Did I ever mention how HARD it is for me to photograph layouts?!?! If I hadn't let me just tell you now! I have the hardest time photographing layouts so please forgive the picture! It actually looks better in real life! I also "tried" a clean and simple layout! I'm not sure if I accomplished it and it was so hard not to keep adding things (look at all that white space ACK!!) Let me go ahead and give you a close up and then I'll give you the details on how I made it!
Sniff, sniff I love this picture of my son but it also makes me sad! I miss my "little" boy! He's 18 now and will turn 19 this February! Anyhoo, I used the polaroid die from the Just Simply Live set. I love this die and it works great for cropping your picture! The pattern paper is some I've had FOREVER and I found it in my stash! I'm pretty sure it's some that came from Hobby Lobby! I used the Martha Stewart drippy goo punch. I used it because I thought it looked like paint drippings too! I then stamped one of the background stamps from Emma's, Script Type Background set. I used CTMH's ink in the color Pear. I also have been dying to use one of my new stamp sets from Close To My Heart called, Instant Memories. The flourishes and paint splatters (that's what I'm calling them for this layout hee hee) are both from this set! I used Indian Corn Summer ink (the blue) by CTMH for the flourishes and one of the splatters. The sentiment at the bottom is from Encouraging Quotes. The word Create is from Inspiring Words. I used the alphabet in Just Simply Live to spell out Kyle's name and I plan on going back and doing the year (just got to figure that one out! arrr for not doing a better job of writing dates on pictures!!)
That's it for my easy peasy, super simple and quick layout!! I hope you like it :) Today is the last day I have to meet my goal for CTMH and I'm pretty sure I'm not going to make it :( That's ok, I guess I just need to work harder :) I have till around midnight tonight so if you have anything on your wish list and want to place a order I sure would appreciate it!
