Today is mine and Leonard's 12th anniversary. Sometimes it's hard to believe it's been that long and other times it seems like it was just yesterday. Time is such a weird thing. Anyway, I thought I would make a little something to celebrate, maybe I'll even end up printing this and putting it on the wall.
I absolutely love Day of the Dead paraphernalia! I think that it's an amazing holiday, to celebrate the dead- a Mexican tradition celebrated on November 2nd upwards of 2500 years! I found a great quote that I wanted to use in conjunction with the Monthly MIx kit created by the GingerScrap Designers- Dia de los muertos! This will be another page for my quote book.
I love Halloween an I love ATCs! It's been ages sine I've made any and since I've started trading with my niece I'm really excited to be back at it. One of my co-workers is kind of in the same boat, hasn't traded ATCs in a long time and when I told her about trading with my niece it lit a spark and I asked if she would like to swap. She said yes, so we did! I chose to use Rucola Designs latest release, Pumpkin Parade foro my ATC.
Each month the girls over at Scrap Take Out create a new collab called the "Culinary Specialists Collab" and it's always jam packed with goodness. The kit for October (which I'm obviously WAY behind on) was full of bright colors and elements that make super fun Fall layouts yet it's versatile enough to be used with all sorts of themes. Just take a look. I also used a fun template by Rainy Dayz Designs.
I'm a little slow this month, not sure what's going on, just been ridiculously lazy I guess. SherrieJD put out a fantastic new kit called Eerie Whispers a few weeks back and I'm just now getting around to get my piece uploaded to all my galleries and posted on my blog. Not being a very good support person, I guess : ( But I have to tell you, this was a super fun kit to play with. I decided to make an ATC for sweet niece, Emily. She told me that she likes Owls, so I thought she would really like this. I can't wait to hear what she says!
Everyone knows Ali Edwards, right? Always inspiring. Well, I recently stumbled onto a blog post that inspired me to act. Ali prompts you to create a list of things about you. You can read all about it HERE. I decided I would make a journal page with my list. I used Art Styling Bundle by Sweet Digi Scraps.
I'm running a few days behind in getting some pages uploaded, so you may have already seen the new creepy kit Dead or Alive by Rucola Designs. I knew right away that I wanted to make something creepy with this kit. When I saw that rat, I knew what it was going to be. I'm terrified of rats, HATE them, they're disgusting with their groddy tails! I decided to use a quote from the Art Journal Caravan, it seemed so fitting.
I just finished a page using a fun new kit by Luv Ewe Designs and a template by Twin Mom Scraps. I really enjoyed making this page, the large photo space in the template is a huge bonus. I try to get some of these in my scrapbooks because they're the kind of pages Leonard likes. I'm a small photo lots of white space kind of girl, he's a large photo very minimal elements kind of guy... I think he's thinking of a photo album, not a scrapbook LOL.
