Little Star

Saturday, September 17, 2011
Since I've made a commitment to cooking healthier meals, working out and taking care of myself and my family, I've found that my time in the studio has become...slim.  Unfortunately.  Until I've got my poop in a  group, studio time will have to take a back seat.  It IS for a good cause, however, so I'm okay with it.  Kind of.

The "Little Star" featured in this layout is my darling son, Draven.  He just turned one a couple of weeks ago!  Time flies!

This layout I used some resist paper to cut the star out of with my cricut and inked the edges with various color of blue distress ink. The stars are grunge board, edges inked black to help them pop, the star border is ribbon, and I used a Martha Stewart punch.  I've been trying to remember to use my punches more.  I've been trying to remember to use ALL my stuff more on every layout.  With that in mind while I worked this layout, I also used some of my die cuts from my stash for the word "star" and some glitter puffy letters for the word "little".  Yay for using my stash!  Also used some of my Tim Holtz tissue tape.  I have a TON of the stuff and have barely used any-so yay for using tissue tape!  The flourish on the bottom is Prima from my stash.  Thanks for stopping by!

It seems one of these blog things are necessary to adequately promote myself and any kit clubs or blog challenges I wish to participate in, so I really need to focus on posting not only at my gallery and family share site, but also on my blog.  

This layout was my submission for the September Round Robin challenge over at Scraps of Darkness.  So fun!  

The photo is of my darling mother and darling daughter back in the fall of 2002.  I used the August Envy kit from Scraps of Darkness and various bits and pieces from my stash.  The bird was misted with spanish moss glimmer mist by Tattered Angels to alter the color to match my layout. The vines were cut using my Big Shot and a Quickutz die.  I promise close up photos of my upcoming projects since that is what I would do normally, but this photo was taken in the wee hours of the night and closeups weren't going to happen.  I do appreciate you taking the time to stop by though.  Do me a favor and let me know you were here!
