Hello everyone! It's a very cold day in this neck of the woods and I have declared it my "do whatever I want all day" day! It seems like this entire Christmas break I have been on the go and I am ready for a day off!
First of all, I want to tell you that I love challenges! They help to get the ol' wheels to turnin' in my brain. I love challenges - I am just awful at remembering to get them posted by the time they are due. And most of the time I even write them down with the due date - I just forget!
At the first of the year I joined in my Yahoo groups' 52 week challenge. Not so hard to remember this one because if I forgot, I was out! Today I am sharing my week 52 layout with you. It feels so good to know that I made it the whole year and I have (at least) 52 layouts in my albums!
Supplies used - patterned paper - Blue star - Close To My Heart, solid yellow - MME Market Street collection, blue wood grain - KaiserCraft - Off The Wall collection, off white background - Basic Grey - Spice Market collection, yellow with pink hearts and yellow and grey chevron - Studio Calico Snippets collection, Wood veneers - Studio Calico, Alphas - Ohana - Lawn Fawn Cole's ABC's dies, small alpha - Jillibean soup.
We take a lot of family photos around here. A lot. So coming up with titles can be a challenge for me. When I was planning this layout I was having a hard time coming up with a title. Then this line from Lilo & Stitch popped into my head and stuck. My family means the world to me and I love every single minute we get to spend together.
I am also entering this layout in Shopping Our Stash's challenge #182 - Thrice is nice - to use 3 (or more) patterned papers on your project.
I also used this sketch from Let's Get Sketchy - Get Inspired Magazine - Christmas edition.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
