I've been a bad challenge blogger of late and have missed several of sweet S's "In Good Company" challenges. Mostly due to lack of good time management. We have ten days to create a page after all, but somehow, I just manage to miss it.
But this time I'm participating in LOAD at the same time which seemed like a good opportunity to get that product fished out and used up! This month's chosen manufacturer is Sassafras which I love and while I don't have much of their stuff, and what I have is several years old now, it was lovely to find it all and get some used. It was perfect for the LOAD 3-2-1 challenge to use three embellishments, two pieces of paper and one photo because their paper is double sided, has those cute borders along the bottom and often has sweet fussy-cutting possibilities. This double challenge proved easier than I thought it would be. Love that.
I found a photo that I love. Totally adore. But there's not really much story behind it apart from the fact that I love it and that is it exactly the type of photo I try to get when I'm over in the UK. These little ones grow up all too fast while I'm away.
My three embellies were the string, the Buttons and a journalling spot (also Sassafras), then two papers from the Life Is Beautiful range and one gorgeous photo. Creating an element cluster with the cut out elements was perfect for this simple page and the borders just added a touch of something. This isn't one of my favourite layouts but it made me happy to use up some older product and find a place for this photo. It gives me a lump in my throat just looking at it.
So happy to be In Good Company once again. Won't you come along and join in too. You'll be surprised what treasures you can find in your own stash. It's worth finding them and spending some time creating happy pages with them :-)
