Ok, I am back home, have my camera and my layout!! It's not too much to get excited about and probably not worth the wait...
but here it is!
I belong to Story Tellers Kit club and used the paper on this layout. I love their paper, but the embellishes are all digital. So I had to stretch to make it have some dimension and texture. The "1" was cut out of the green paper and instead of using the yellow (that looks pink in this photo?) paper, I used the yellow Stickles to fill it all in. I like the shiny and bumpiness of it.
I originally thought I would slip the photo under the edge where I placed the bling...you can see where I sliced it in this close-up. But I couldn't make it work the way I wanted, so abandoned that thought! Luckily it is not noticeable on the large page.
I'd like to thank those who stopped by on the hop and especially those who are playing along. I have a couple of new followers now, and I do plan to start posting on a regular basis again. The holidays just wiped my out creatively!
I just got a new kit in the mail from Memory Works (I sell it, if you are interested drop me a comment) and I can't wait to start a new layout! I'm dreaming that someday my pictures will all be finished...
You keep dreamin' too.
