So Beautiful

So Beautiful.

It's been busy around here, again. Not getting to my favorite two past times of blogging and scrapping lately. And to be honest it's all a blur. I don't even know what makes me so busy.  But I do know that at the end of every day I am exhausted. Not to mention, our mama pitbull ate my laptop charger (this makes two times now) and all I had was my desktop, which I prefer not to use, unless I am editing or playing music. It feels too much like work to be stuck at one spot to have to update this blog.

Right now, 4 of our 6 dogs, are running around the house, barking at each other. I just got back from taking the three littles for a walk. Their first walk! Well... it didn't go well. Gizmo and Roo were doing well at first, but then a car drove by. Paris would barely move at all. So I didn't get to walk them far. I ended up taking Paris and Gizmo inside, then just taking Roo for a walk/run. She did great by herself, so I guess that is the way I will have to do it from now on, until they get used to it.

Anyway, enough of my rambling.

This layout came out pretty well. It's base is a wonderful light charcoal gray, with a little distressing and white polka dots. I found a piece of yellow polka dot paper in my scraps file and added that to the top, inking the edges with charcoal ink.

Then I splattered black paint on the layout, and waited for it to dry. That's tedious. I hate having to wait! For anything. He,he.

I printed a cool street lamp on white cardstock then cut it out using a craft knife. Then because the black wasn't really as black as I wanted it, I colored it with a sharpy.

I found three more strips of paper in my scrap pile that I thought went well together, and I cut them various sizes and lengths, inking the edges as well with charcoal ink. 

Then I printed the photo I took, that is slightly over exposed (but I don't care, because there is something about it, that I am in love with) and I matted it on white cardstock.

Then I added white outline stickers, colored brads made by Spare Parts, a glazed sticker and   white lace butterflies made by Martha Stewart.

I hope you like my layout.
