Monday

Good Monday Morning! J and I are enjoying what's left of the summer, got big plans to play outside with our trucks in the dirt today. Here is a Cosmo Cricket layout that exemplifies what we have been up to lately:



By way of instructions, I printed the photos first, then I added the title and the journaling with the computer later (but it would be better if you did it all at the same time, I'm kind of scatterbrained like that.) I mounted it to cardstock, added it to the Cosmo Cricket Get Happy patterned paper. I left a space in my journaling for the Cosmo Cricket Vintage Blackboard letter, and then inked by Cosmo Buck Naked Chipboard heart with Colorbox Scarlet Ink. I added the Making Memories tiny Alphas last. I added the instructions because a couple of people have asked me if it was a digital layout. Nope, if you ink it, definitely not digi right?

I got a futon and an expedite bookcase at IKEA, but my room is kind of a mess at the moment. I might need a day or two to share pics. God bless dh for hulling everything out of IKEA, tying it to the roof of the car, lugging it in the house up 3 stories, and putting everything together for me. He totally gets it, or he fakes it because he loves me. Either way. . .

I'd love to hear about your weekend! Leave me a link/comment so I can find you!
