Life.Paper.Scrapbook | November Colour Challenge...

Hello Everyone.  I've had a huge week helping and sharing with the Heidi Swapp Make Pretty Stuff Down Under tour | Brisbane.  It was wonderful getting to know Heidi but one of the best parts was working together with all of the Greatest View girls! We had such a great time and so many belly laughs!!!
 

Today however, I am moving on from the euphoria of the long weekend to share something equally fun!  Life.Paper.Scrapbook's latest colour challenge has been released.  *grin*



And here is my example...

"Tonka Love"

products used: cs - Kaisercraft; pp - Pink Paislee, Bella Blvd; Alpha - Bella Blvd, Echo Park; other - Heidi Swapp: ephemera, colorshine; Echo Park: cardstock stickers, decorative brads; Studio Calico wood veneer hearts & arrows; rhinestones, Greatest View badge/flair, washi, PLS: train ticket; tools - typewriter, machine stitching.



My layout is still 8.5"x11" but I have attached journaling typed onto white cardstock, as a flap that folds flat against the back of the page.  Washi tape can work wonders!

In love with this page! It is my favorite for this challenge! Congrats!

Glad you had a good time with Heidi. I love your page, especially the story. It reminds me so much of my Father in law. His name was Jim as well. He would tease my kids and concoct all kinds of funny stories just to see the reaction out of the kids. He would spoil them. He bought my sweet boy his first Tonka truck. He is gone now.. cancer got him. :(
