Oh I just so had to scrap for me today. Yes, I've got work assignments to do for CX, yes, I've got to create some more goodies for Outta This Funk, yes, I need to work with some product for a mfg. that I'd dearly love to be a part of their design team, but wow....sometimes you just gotta scrap for no other reason, than to scrap. Okay, so maybe there was a little extra-cirricular motivation behind this layout which I made for entering into the Utah State Fair in the "automobiles" category.
I just love these photos of my little peanut playing with the wheels on the bus. My favorite photo is the photo on the far right. Notice how the wheel is spinning. Love the motion in that one.
I sure was stewing about what papers to use, cause my local craft store surely has a lack of boyish purple papers. By some stroke of brilliant luck, I was rifling through some papers that sweet Jen Gallacher gave me the other day and this purple was in there. Thank you Jen....ms. Relief Society President, for being so inspired to slip that purple paper in with the other goodies! You're a doll! Maybe one day I can be as in tune as you are! ;) Oh wait, then I may be in contending to be a RS President. Hmmmm...maybe I'll just keep my pinky around the iron rod, and keep sitting in the back row of the cultrual hall in Sacrament Meeting. I mean, hey, we've been in the ward for 2 years now and have avoided the invitation to speak! We're doing SOMETHING right. :0)
And of course the title of this layout warraned a trip to Roberts for the purple glitter Thickers. Oh man. If I could have every color and design of Thickers on this planet I'd look like an absolute goof ball from a perma-grin. I mean seriously....have you seen the new metal Thickers? The font is A-DOR-A-BLE! It was all I could do to restrain myself from buying them as well, but alas, my hubby told me to go and spend some money today...well this is how it went.
K: I really want to go and buy some scrapbook stuff
T: How much do you want to spend
K: Oh I don't know...maybe $5. I just want to get some letters for the wheel page.
T: Oh, go ahead, that's fine.
Me: Roberts....new stuff...40% off of all patterned paper....new MM Halloween line....cute pumpkin door doohickey hanger thing.....a ghost cookie cutter (don't ask me...that was Aaron's choice, I'm not making cookies), and uh.....$19 later. Oopsies!
Anyhow, wish me luck at the Fair with this one!
