More.....let me grow

When I saw the November sketch for the Crate blog - I just had to laugh....I had a layout in process that was almost the sketch to a T....Emily does a wonderful job designing these sketches and we had a little laugh about 'great minds'

I wanted to create a layout about what I was currently doing....just a moment in time so no photos on this one - I took a digital frame set and used photos of the book, class and current magazine I've been focused on.

My journaling...if you want to read it.....and a close-up of the DecoArt Texture Crackle Paint on the chipboard frame - this is Terra Cotta. Seriously, I can't rave about this product enough....the ease of use, colors, price point....amazing!!! I also thinned down some DecoArt Americana Acrylics - in White Wash and just let it drip...a nice effect, I think. :)

Lots of mix and match going on here from Crate Paper - School Days, Restoration and an older background from Brook.

Look at the incredible color on this doily from the Chip Chop vibrant!!

We had a really busy weekend....gymnastics was fun, but I'm glad it's over. Thanksgiving is really right around the corner, so a short week for us. Only 2 days of school for Em and then a little break over the holiday. I'm looking forward to that.

Happy Monday to you all!
