happily, i remembered to snap a few shots of my booth layout and mini album before heading out to chicago last week. good thing because we had a blog hop planned for when we came back! i forgot to do that last show... so here's my layout for you, i got to play with the gorgeous memoir line and i used mister huey in custard (from memoir) and calico shine (from the classics collection) along with the butterfly masks to create my background. i loved those masks, i usually just use punched shapes, but i can see the benefit of having vinyl masks now. they were so easy to use! add some of the great chipboard tags and buttons, a bunch of pleated strips, and a stamp, and i was able to create one of my most favorite layouts ever! i won't tell you how many pieces of paper went towards creating the perfect balance of mists before i got my background :) let's just say my masks got a lot of use. and i'm almost out of custard...
here's a couple of close ups for you, i embossed the title because it had to be white. it was very easy, much to my joy. just press lightly so the ink doesn't slide.
my garden journal didn't get a good photo apparently, this is the before shot... the after is very similar, but looks so much better. :) inside i added pictures and notes on the progression of my garden. i just wrote and wrote, not worrying about balance and design, it was very fun to do!
the whole team is giving away a new product and i've select the mister huey calico shine (check out the entire catalog of new products here) as my giveaway. leave me a comment and i'll enter you into the drawing. comments close thursday morning at 7 MST and i'll pick a winner to post that day.
