Mad for Manly Metals

Having no other girls in the house, I find that I need to create a lot of manly layouts. I really love this one I made yesterday. The photos were my inspiration. The title came to me as I was looking at the pictures, and I just had to scrap! My metal touches: a link chain, metal buttons, and studs on the title letters. I also grunged up the the pages by direct-inking everything! I like this one so much!

Focus on Family

My "One Little Word" for 2012 is FOCUS. When the stress gets out of control, I have to refocus myself on what matters most. Number one is my family. Even if things get busy, I can think back to a recent special time with them and feel better--more centered. Here's my June OLW layout for Club CK:

I used supplies from my June kit from Studio Calico, half of a die cut page (unknown designer--I know I bought a set on QVC years ago), and a soft embelli for my journaling tag. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

Adding stitches onto layouts puts a little more of the creator on finished layouts. It is another way to put a personal stamp on the documented memories.

Here are a few examples:

some faux stitching too!
