NSD may technically be over.... but we have a whooooooooole line up of challenges over on the Studio Calico blog that are open through next monday. You can find all of the details in this post - there's a $100 GC as the grand prize, so it's definitely worth trying a challenge or three! I took on two of the challenges - it was the perfect way to use up a bit more of my Planetarium kits and play with the new Atlantic collection.
I think we've all been in a position of wanting to record certain thoughts on a page without them beind front and center. For this page, I wanted to jot down some thoughts about how much we love our current ball team, but part of that reflection included some past struggles with teams. Hiding the journaling lets me focus on this amazing team of boys and their coaches.
I had a little extra room at the bottom of my glassine bag and was going to just trim it down and stitch it shut when I decided it would make an awesome place for some confetti.
Once upon a time, I couldn't finish ANY project without buttons. Time went on, and decorative brads, enamel dots and sequins came into my life, and my poor button stash has spent a lot of time on a shelf in a jar (where it looks super cute, so at least it has that going for it!). As I worked on this PL spread, I realized that buttons fit right in with my beloved enamel dots, and I really like the two of them mixed together! They're also not too bulky in the pocket pages. Maybe I'd better move that button jar a little closer to my desk...
This is half of my week 16... I'm working on finishing it up this week. =)
happy monday! my week is off to a rocky start - sam and i went out to leave for school and realized the car battery was d-e-a-d. sam's enjoying the unexpected day off. i'm trying to not be too frazzled by it. ;)
