Productive Weekend

Despite the long weekend we had for the labour day holidays, I was amazingly productive, even with handling the two monsters at home plus toilet training. I did the first layout for Moments Recorded May Challenge. Rules of the challenge were simple this time- we had to use only rub-ons, stamps and stickers to create our own patterns. No cardstock allowed except for the layout piece and no chipboards except for the alphas.

Considering how much I like to embellish, this was a tough task. But I must say I enjoyed the 'white space' and distressed look I created for this LO. I inked and distressed the edges, and even sandpapered the cardstock to add to the look. I wanted to go really vintage and add on my faux pearl strings RAK-ked by Sophia but then again, I am not sure if that will breach the rules of the challenge so I forfeited the idea. I used Unity's distressed music background stamp and Inkadinkado's mini clear bird stamp here. Rub-ons were from Basic Grey and ribbons from my stash!

Second LO- I simply can't bear to cut up my Sassafras Lass paper. Its so bright and cheery so I cut out Asher's picture and stuck it onto one of the hot-air balloons on the paper and embellished around it. This is really simple. The paper speaks for itself and I love Asher's shy little smile @ 1.5 months old.

Just a little toot. One of my previous layouts in which I used Sassafras Lass- Fawnd of You paper was selected as the winning entry over at {Create}. Yay yay yay!!! Now I go over to their blog everyday to see my name and my layout being mentioned. Cheap thrill, I know but very happy!!!
