Okay let me catch you guys up a little here and then I will get to the layout.
So you know all the issues I have had in the last few weeks and how I was down a bit. Actually I think getting sick just put the cap on it, well and then when the fridge went out. BUT....things are looking up! My wonderful sister found my daughter a car, a 99 Dodge Neon, and we will go next week and pick it up. I am buying Naomi's fridge from her and it is in my house right now keeping my diet coke cold and making ice! OMG! I am so excited about an ice maker *okie thinks she is so easy to please sometimes*. I am feeling better, still have a cough and a little runny nose but no fever and was able to get things straightened up around here today after my wonderful neighbor James and two of his friends brought the fridge over and hooked up the ice maker.
I want to thank all of you for your wonderful comments the last few weeks! It really means a lot to me to know that you guys seem to really know me and care about my well being!
Okay so now for the layout. I actually got 3 layouts done a few weeks ago but then things started getting crazy around here and I didn't get pictures of them and post them.
I thought this layout was appropriate to end the year since I titled it "gray today... gone tomorrow"! For some odd reason I thought it necessary to take pictures of me coloring my hair and I thought I would scrapbook it. I think I am very brave for posting this layout since I look like total crap in the pictures! *okie cracks up laughin and wonders if she is still running a little fever for even posting this layout*
The patterned paper is from Basic Grey's Sugared line...LUVZ IT! The flower is made from Prima's and I added a pearl brad for the center.
I used several carts for the layout. The title words were welded in Design Studio using Printing Press. ProvoCraft has retired this cart and it is one of my favorite font carts! I love the different style lettering on this cart.
I got the Look Here from Graphically Speaking. I cut it several times and did some hide contour on some of the colors to get the effect using the four different colors.
I did faux stitching on some of it and then added some dots also. I added Diamond Stickles to the "HERE" and then put some small pearls on the arrow.
The arrow in the bottom right hand corner is actually from one of the cuts. Waste not want not ya know!
I have always thought journaling printed then cut apart and the words put on individually looks so cool and I finally decided to try it. The tags were from the paper pack and I was able to match the corners on plain cardstock by using the Stampin Up! Ticket Punch on the tag at the bottom and a corner rounder on the tag at the top.
Oh you can probably see where I used the Cuttlebug on the title words in this picture better. I actually used a Stampin Up! folder on some of the words and then the others are done with the Cuttlebug folder Dots *okie wonders if that is what it is called but can't remember for sure*.
Hope you guys have enjoyed my blog this past year and I look forward to another great year in the blogging world with hopefully some decent projects for you guys to look at *okie wonders if her readers come to see the projects or just to read her mind...thinks the tin foil hat is going to be a must have purchase in the new year*. Wishing all of you a wonderful year in 2011!
