Happy 1st July!
It's Friday and that means the weekend is just a few short hours away which can only be a good thing.
Today marks the first day of a new challenge that my LOAD friend Whimsical Nature and myself have set ourselves – a daily layout throughout July so that means I will be really busy creating the whole month. I can't wait to get started on today's layout.
Daily creating makes me happy.
But more of that later in the month...
Today I just wanted to share a layout I created with my All A Flutter kit for one of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge mini challenges.
They very cleverly took inspiration from my blogosphere friend S's blog post (here) which featured a rather smart, witty, creative creature. Yes, S wrote all about herself and then followed it up in the Counterfeit Blog Hop (here). So cute!
Anyway, I decided that I could do that – a layout about me. I do them all the time after all. In the end it was more difficult than I thought and even now, I'm not so satisfied with the journalling but it does use quite recent photos so that can only be a good thing.
I was really struggling to get enough out of the kit leftovers but in the end got very creative with the scraps and even used some Prima packaging. I think in the end, I added in the sheet of cardstock, the single letter for my title, and the small kraft doily but all the rest is the kit. I used the Scrap Happy sketch for June, turning it on its side and deciding to really go for a cluster of banners instead of a usual cluster. I think I must have seen this overlapping banner look somewhere online and have taken that as inspiration (sorry but have no idea where now... I wonder if I pinned it?!?)
I only have small paper scraps now plus dozens of brads (!) and a few flowers left in my kit so I will probably make a few cards and call it a day. I have one more layout to share from this kit but apart from that.... job done.
Happy Friday everyone!
