and here's my take on the sketch provided and the challenge of including a handwritten journaling. I have to admit, I usually don't journal that much on my layouts - I guess it might be because I'm never really sure of what/how to write it or whether if it would fit into the overall design of the layout. and this was the perfect challenge for that first step...
also using my studio calico kit (from Feb - Candy Shoppe) - I just adore all the fun and bright colors in this collection and especially those exclusive Crate Papers!!!
Also feeling that its been a while that I have used my mist (well especially the other colors)... and therefore, lets add a bit here and there... and making use of a new stamp set that I just bought - manufactured by lawn fawn - the super fun and usefully banner stamp set (the cute little bird is also part of the same stamp set).
and in case you missed these at MWL - Maya Road has come out with kraft tags!! oh yes, I got loads of them... and last but not least... my take on the journaling part of the challenge, capturing my take on London (part 1 - there's more to come).
A big thanks everyone for stopping by and especially for all the wonderful comments - its wonderful to meet everyone (and will definitely be stopping by to say hi too). And a happy weekend everyone!!!(also a quick note to let everyone know that I have just mailed out the prizes and ladies - be on the look out for your keychains with a little something extra *wink*)
