I did it. I finally made a digital layout that I am digging, thanks in large part to Jessica Sprague and the latest CK Kit of the Month. I just got the files to play with last night, and made this layout in like, 10 minutes. Now THAT is some scrap productivity. (click to see it larger.)
The only thing I added was the font (Folio) but all other elements are just one small part of this digital kit. I'm loving the designs of the layouts on this thing. Love it when clever people make clever products! Thank you, Jessica!
In other non-related scrapbooking news, it was a year ago today that I was tooling around New Zealand for last year's Kiwi Scraps event. Me and the entire immediate Zielske clan. But not just the clan—Ali and Donna as well. And that was like getting to bring your friends, too.
When we all got home, we wanted to give David and Mary Roberts (our gracious, charming hosts) a little momento of our time together, so we commissioned an illustration from the also gracious, and charming Claudine Hellmuth—something that would give them a little piece of us. I took a low res scan of her illustration, and made this layout last September.
I can't tell you how happy it makes me to be depicted in Poppet form!
And my most favorite part? Ali holding toast. And if you ever want to know why, listen to this.
Good times, mates. Indeed!
