Simply Smashing - Junk Journal Swap & PP #31

This Junk Journal was for my very first swap. . . I sure hope this is what she was looking for. My partner is from Maryland, USA. She is a wife and mother of one preteen daughter. I tried to accomplish everything on her "Wish List" but the album just kept getting fatter and fatter. . .LOL!

I will also use this for the Scrapbooker's Playing in Paradise Challenge #31 - Flowers, Flowers, Flowers!

SCT's P12 Layout - June 2011

So here is my layout for June's P12 Challenge. Finally. . . after fiddling with the final details I'm done! Had to position the snowflakes just right. I've had this sitting on my dining room table for over a month now (how sad).

Now onto August's sketch. . . looks so fun!

SCT's P12 Layout - July 2011

Here is my layout for July's P12 Challenge . . . . finally (phewww) and June's is on it's way, just putting the final details on it. Slightly behind schedule, but I'm almost caught up and August's P12 layout should be on time. . . Yahoooo!

I wanted to take advantage of this challenge to get all my vacation pics scrapped and into my album. So you will definitely be seeing more of our trip through the western states. Day One (1) we left Alberta and headed into Montana, absolutely gorgeous going through the mountains and the pastures where we found this young foal; ohhh so adorable!

I've created a little accordion file on the layout for plenty of journaling and a few extra pics. Tried to keep it pretty natural, using jute, copper coloured eyelets and choosing earth tones for the layout. I also used TA Chalkboard Mist to darken the jute, just to give it a lil pop. And of course lots of distressing and sewing on the paper, two of my most favourite things to do. . .  Well I hope you like it - June's should be coming out shortly, then August. . . I know I'm a lil backwards. . . LOL!
