i had to chuckle at myself... last night i re-read my last entry and i sound pretty sleep-deprived! sorry that i sounded like a freaK! and it seemed like there was a little confustion on the layout that i posted last time.. .that was not QUINCY in the photo! that was a little girl that was also being baptized with Colton and i had photographed all the kids that were getting baptized... so i had that cute photo. her name is McKay... hence the "m". i got such great pictures of Colton in his new suit and PINK tie! i am trying to think of the "perfect" layout for such a special event. working on that...
last night i started scrapbooking my new york trip. got all my photos printed. it's been awhile since i went and got a WHOLE STACK of photos printed...so that was kindof fun! i have gotten in the habit of just printing out what i need at the moment. i started with my favorite (i really do think it's my favorite- or at least a tie for my favorite) place in NYC... ABC carpet and home. when i go i just have to take it nice and slow-never rush. it's total overload! i LOVE the 'stairwell' photo. The entire stairwell, of the 7 story building (well, the store has 7 floors) it's painted this serious orange color, and has that awesome railing. i always love walking up to the next floor and opening the door and being greeted with amazing color, design and beauty! - it's a feast! i could go on and on about it. go there if you can!
on this layout, after i painted the chipboard letters some color concoction that seemed to work, i covered the letters and label holder with a couple coats of UTEE. i used scenic route paper, bazzill cardstock and the "TUESDAY" i cut out from the november calendar that is hanging on my wall. i inked some of the tape to better fit into the color scheme... that sure makes them versatile! the 'ooh la la' is a silhouette word. i got a few questions about the silhouettes... you can check them out in the summer and fall catalogs on the heidiswapp.com website... but we released a bunch at the summer show- all in white; then released a bunch of different colors at the fall show. i am pretty sure the white summer ones are shipping....??? i also used a big orange 'FLORAL'... also from the summer collection- they just started shipping as well. The "abc" is from the 3" box chipboard alphabet; and the "SHOP" is from the 'center of attention' chipboard alphabets sheets... they are self-adhesive.. but after i had painted and embossed them, i pretty much just had to glue them on.-
i have a goal to scrapbook one layout from the NYC trip each day this week... now that i have admitted that out loud, that is all the sudden feeling like a lot of pressure! we'll see! it was such a great trip!
