Howdy folks! Here is my page for this week's ColourQ challenge! Lovely, COOL colors this week! I love when Arielle mixes the neutrals (i.e. both a beige and a gray) like this.... because I love the way it looks and I can tell you, I would never come up with that on my own! It's SOOOO good to think outside of your self-imposed creative box sometimes! KWIM? :)
So here's the fabby COOL palette, love this bedding.... I love owls, I always did, even before they were the "in" thing. :) Have you ever seen a live owl? If you live near me, I bet you have, they are really neat! This photo reminds me of the owl table runner and pillow covers that I made last Fall! The runner turned out so cute that it's been on my dining room table since I made it! :)
I had pinned this cute layout on Pinterest, and that's where I started with my own layout of the page.
Pulled out these pics from Evan's Mother's Day Tea from his first year of preschool. Look how little he looks here! *sob* Between these pics and dropping Ian off at MIDDLE SCHOOL yesterday, I am seriously about to lose my mama marbles! But, I keep reminding myself, it's good too. I have been at at-home mom for over a decade. And I am really ready to have a job and some more freedom. Not that volunteering at 3 schools and driving them to 3 schools, blogging, submitting, etc. gives me much free time right now! LOL, but it's coming soon. And even though it's a little sad to have them get older, it's really neat too.
Why there aren't any photos of me (the MOM) at the Mother's Day Tea? Who knows, I guess I just didn't hand the camera over to another mom, and say "here, take one of me, too!" ;)
Kept it to a single page, I only had 4 photos to scrap from this event.
And that's it for me today! Please come play at the ColourQ with us this week!
supply list: DSP: Stampin' Up!; owl punch/circle punches: EK Success for SU!; corner punch: EK Success; scraps for punching owls; Letter stickers: Sticko
DUST IT OFF! That owl punch is several years old, but still so cute, who could resist? Scraps make great paper for punching out of, and then I mixed and matched my owls to my hearts content. :)
