This seemed the perfect theme for me......as color is such a huge part of my work. We are really wanting to encourage people to mix and match Crate Paper lines and other products - so much fun for me. It allows so much creativity, just what I love from a manufacture!! I so appreciate their confidence in me.
The first challenge is up today - here's my palette, the details are all here on the Crate Blog.
My layout - this is a photo that Em took of me a couple of weeks ago - the journaling and title is about what she said....so funny! I did a lot of mix and match with Crate lines old and new.
And the journaling, so you won't think I'm stuck on myself....lol - these weren't my words, obviously. A lot of you know how I've really struggled with my weight over the years and have really taken getting healthy seriously this year (I've lost 55 lbs) - I so want to pass a healthy lifestyle on to Em.
I did some watered down paint splatter - DecoArt Americana Acrylics - Tuscan Red - love that color!
*************************************Mark and Emma went out and picked out a Christmas tree a couple of nights ago - I'm looking forward to trimming it and the house out this weekend, getting into the joy of the season. I think this may be our last year with Santa.....someone keeps asking me some very detailed and specific questions. She wants to believe but her logical little brain keeps questioning. Oh, that I might never lose that wonder and feeling of magic. I want Em to know that - to always believe in something amazing and bigger than herself. Isn't that what Christmas is all about?
Wishing you much joy this holiday season.
