Drinking Poison

Happy Wednesday! Well, it was only happy for some of us because today was my girls’ first day back at school. They definitely did not want to go. I took photos of them waiting for the bus, but they need to be edited so I’ll be back later to share them. Brandon and I spent the day running errands and catching up on things around here.

I also spent a while answering email. Then I noticed that I had a few projects on my desktop that I’ve been meaning to share, so I’m taking a quick minute to put them up on my blog.

1: Imagination


My kids have the best grandma on the planet! She sent them a bunch of stuff to play doctor with, and they've been hugely entertained by the whole thing.

2: Drinking Poison (Art Journal)


I don't usually upload my art journal pages here, but since a few friends have asked... My art journal pages are pretty random. Just whatever bit of memorabilia I have around, and the story I want to tell. I've also added quotes and random embellishments. It's pretty much a picture of what's in my head on a given day.

3. Clyde The Fabulous Clydesdale


I created this layout with the awesome August "The Story Begins" kit, add on, and mask add on from Scraptastic Club. I don't usually use a lot of pink on my pages, but I stretched WAY outside of my comfort zone to make this one.

I did a bit of misting with the hexagon mask from the add on. Everything is from the kit except for the sparkly blue alpha and the pink Stickles. (Yes, I own pink Stickles!)

Thank You copy

I am exactly the same way about disorganized/flaky people. It makes me unbelievably angry... and I have to remind myself that my anger isn't doing anything but hurting myself. So glad you shared that art journal page - I totally needed that today after being stood up by someone in a leadership position who obviously is too irresponsible to be in charge of anything.

Loveeeeeeeee your pages and your art journal!!! I used to be like that ... but then I married Brian and realized that he is who he is... and I am who I am... it's all about compromising our lifestyles... I have become a lot more laid back!!! :)
