These are my two monthly layouts for the American Crafts Contributing Design Team:
A Little Bit Hippie
When I went to Washington in July to welcome my brother back from his mission, I noticed Allie had beads in her hair so of course I wanted some too. We had fun picking them out at the "BF" (aka Ben Franklin. When I worked at Yesterdays Scrapbooking and Stuff we always had to refer people to the BF for things we didn't carry. The BF is still in business, Yesterdays is not, sadly). The beads didn't last long in my hair, I couldn't sleep with them...but they were cool while they lasted!
Also in Washington in July we went sea dooing on Lake Sammamish. I had fun cutting and tearing waves and clouds from this assortment of blue and white and cardstock. Check me out using glitter cardstock! Glitter is not my favorite :) but I thought it'd be appropriate here for "sparkling" water and clouds. I also busted out a blue crayon underneath the journaling. I forgot how fun crayons can be!
