I didn’t take very many photos during week 7. It was the week of my daughter’s first solo competition and there was just too much excitement and nerves in the air but that wasn’t the reason why I wasn’t taking photos. These days, I’ve cut back on photography to add other hobbies to my list. 🙂
Sometimes I have to wait until the right digital kit/journal cards are released to create my layouts. A couple of months back I downloaded a Monster High kit by Lisete Scrap (at Mscraps) and Brave journal cards by Amber Shaw and Studio Flergs (at Sweet Shoppe) and began to put the layouts together. I am very behind on my PL 2012 (and 2013 and 2014…) but I’m okay with it. I’m just going to tackle them whenever I can.
Finally done with January!
For the flowers, since I don’t have a variety of ephemera colors I decided to cut some digital flowers out with the Silhouette Portrait, then color them/color over them. I also don’t have a lot of stencils since I’m new to stenciling I had the Silhouette also cut the words and the triangle shapes on regular paper to use at stencils.
The triangle shapes stencil by Wilna Furstenberg, flowers by Sweet Caroline Studio, Mommyish, and Sugarplum Paperie, die cut tree branch was cut out from a digital element by Sarahh Graphics, wood veneer by Heidi Swapp, paper by Amy Tangerine, and paint is Reeves.
