Hello everyone! Hope you all are having a wonderful day. I’ve just come back from running errands for various school projects we’ve got going on right now. Poor Nicole has 3 projects, count them…3….all at the same time. I had to get more ink for the printer so we can finish up a poster board on the presidential candidates, had to buy her a flash drive for her Albert Einstein biography project, and…have been searching and searching for George Washington costume items for her wax museum project. Not easy to find George Washington attire in this day and age. I did find a suit jacket and a women’s ruffled blouse at the Goodwill today, but still don’t know where I’m going to find the white wig. Guess I have to start searching the Halloween stores next. You’d think with all my Halloween stuff, that I’d have one handy somewhere….but alas. ;)
Now that I’ve gotten all that stuff out of the way, I can move on to fun things. Like the next Random Chaos challenge. So how about it? You all ready for another challenge? This week’s challenge is to use polka dots, flowers and buttons on a layout. Some of my favorite items! Here is what I did.
Isn’t she cute? I absolutely adore this photo of Nik taken at the corn maze 4 years ago. And I love these papers with it. I know it’s a little hard to tell, but if you look real closely, you will see that the background has the most delicious glittered tone-on-tone polka dots on it. It is just SO beautiful. I also further enhanced the polka dot theme by punching 2″ circles out of some Making Memories spiderweb paper and arranging them in a grid behind my photo. Machine stitching around the edges of the grid gives the block some framework. Finished it off with two trims, Prima paper flowers, some MM buttons, and glittered chipboard alphas from Little Yellow Bicycle. Everything on this page came from the October kit from Paper-Playground. Another kit I am completely in love with! Kits are still available on the website and begin shipping tomorrow, just in case you can’t resist.
Thanks for letting me share!
