live life in COLOR my project this month involved an old broken clock i had laying around in my one-day-i-might-use-this pile. just a cheap plastic wall clock - i painted the exterior (i recommend sanding it first, if it is a cheap plastic one, otherwise the paint scratches off VERY easy. i need to sand this THEN paint!) and saved the paper clock face to use as a template for my layout.
1996 for this layout i used some old photos of samantha and i, shortly after we got to take her home...
words to live by (sketch based on a sketch from sketchy thursdays) i used a mirror image of this sketch, and bumped up the journaling area. used a lot of paint on this one - smudged brown paint on the pink cardstock, then dribbled some grayish-black paint on top of that.
well, that's september's kit. actually, it's a small PORTION of september's kit - the kits are always so full of scrappy goodness that i always have plenty left to use for other projects. i guess it helps that i'm naturally thrifty, though, and like to stretch my supplies!
best of luck to melinda at scrappy chics - she's flyin' the coop and LEAVING alaska! we'll miss her up here, but all you lucky lower 48'ers will get a chance to meet her, maybe - she'll be more centrally located on the west coast! lucky for me, though, we'll keep in touch - and when i visit her area, i'm SO going to pop in & see her!
