I really love the bright colors in this kit and thought that they might help liven up some super cute photo's from the zoo last year, since all the main colors in the photos were grays and tans.
Of course Charlie was 2 at the time so he didn't care so much about the animals (and there were about one million meltdowns that morning) but he LOVED the splash pad at the Roger Williams Zoo!
I really enjoyed using almost every aspect of the kit for this layout: the vellum, flair, arrow stickers, stamps, 7 patterned papers, washi tape, both sets of alphas, and those great blank October Afternoon stickers (I could layer those all day long!). I hope you like it!
I'm also here today to share a tour of my scrapbooking area! I'm lucky enough to have my own room so I have LOTS of storage-- none of it is super beautiful like some rooms that I see but I love it just the same and it works perfectly for my needs (ahem-- and it's cheaper --ahem)
Here's the view into the room. The colors were left over from the teenage girl that lived there before we moved in, but yellow/green/blue aren't horrible colors for a creative space so we haven't changed it quite yet. Maybe one day!
Oh! and I love this idea of using a towel rack to hang punches! I bought 3 towel racks 6 months ago and have so far only convinced my husband to put up one (grrr). I'm anxiously awaiting being able to use more because the storage is so handy and I have so many more punches to stow away!
Those punches need a home! Tell my hubby to help a girl out, won't ya?
Lastly, I have a little area set up for my 2 year old to color and play while I do fun stuff. Does this work to get him out of my hair? Yes! For 30 seconds only, but those 30 seconds are kinda nice....until he starts ripping apart the layout I'm working on....and making race tracks on the carpet with Sharpies.....I mean, that never happened to me, but I hear it happens....
Anyways, there's my long winded tour of my room. I hope you like it and maybe even try out some of the organizational tips!
