Knock knock! Anybody still hanging around here?
It’s been so long since you’ve seen a post of me. I didn’t intend to be this absent, yet somehow life just happened during the past couple of weeks. It were great weeks, if that may be of any comfort. We lived life, made memories, focussed on family time, and had an amazing time doing so. I feel that my batteries are charging again, and I’m getting more and more excited for another year of blogging and crafty adventures.
As a way to warm up, I wanted to share this layout tonight that I made for A Flair For Buttons a while back. You may have seen this one showing up in my Instagram-feed already – especially this one was very memorable😉 What a mess I made, just before finishing this piece up. Pure horror! Luckily I was able to fix it all up again, and you can barely see something happened.
This wood veneer floral from Studio Calico had been in my stash for a while, while I was looking for the perfect spot for it. I loved how it added to the feel of this layout, and the camera flair from the Arrows and Cameras 1 set was the perfect finishing touch to it. Isn’t that tiny heart on the camera to dye for!!
The papers I used are all from Crate Paper’s Journey collection – I bought the 6×6 paper pad a while back. A lot of the embellishments are also from Crate Paper – I find myself turning a lot to their collections lately.
The picture is a selfie the boy and I took a few months back. Since I was peeking in from the side, I thought it would be fun to place the picture along the left edge of the layout. I had seen others do it, and I always loved the end result, so I thought this was my moment;)
This really is us. Tuur is pretty much a momma’s boy. He’s a hugger and kisser, and goofy kisser – although he seems to think every now and then lately that he’s getting a bit too big for that (hope I can talk him out of that;)). And together we can act like two goof balls;) So I wanted to document that.
Thanks for stopping by! You probably deserve a medal for still hanging around here;) I’ll see you on Saturday, for an awesome new Weekend Guest post. See you later!
