Create + Pretty Little Studio...

Hello Friends.  It is getting to be that busy time of year.  The time when schools go into over drive regarding end of year concerts, end of year break up parties and end of year chaos!  :)

The older the kids get (plus the addition of having more children at school!) tends to increase the work load which is expected at home.  Costumes are to be readied - ballet/jazz/rock eisteddfod/Arts night... Props to be organised - prep/ballet... Baking to start - birthdays/school projects...  And I'm not complaining.  Because I love being involved with what the kids do, both in and out of school.  I'm merely documenting the workload... IYKWIM! ;)

At the moment it's a battle between the "need to do" list, and the "want to do" list! hee hee... That first list is feeling rather large....  I have so many little (and big) projects on the go at the moment.  I'm sort of stuck in exhaustion mode.  LOL!

But anyway.. Today I want to share with you my project over at Pretty Little Studio.  It is another sketch challenge but I love the way my layout turned out... (maybe it has more to do with the journaling opportunity than the whole overall look! Because it is kinda blue looking!! But not IRL!!)

[You & Me]

products used: cs - bazzill; pp - Pretty Little Studio (Antique Store collection); alphas - American Crafts vinyl thickers, October Afternoon; other - string, PLS: journal cards, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Tim Holtz ink, black pen (sharpie).

I had to throw in a banner there at the bottom.  I love how it creates a festive or celebratory feel to the layout.  Especially in regards to the journaling...

Thanks for visiting...x
