Oh, and look at this!

My layout was chosen for Star of the Day at ScrapAttack!

Thanks Wendi!

This is the layout I did for the third week of the Stuck?! CT call. I have been setting this picture aside for a long time, wanting the perfect papers and embellies for it.. and it finally just all came together. This is one of my favorite pictures of Patrick.. I love the motion of it (darn I miss that Minolta camera!!)
This is the first time I have used the fragments (by Tim) that I bought at the crop last December.. definitely will be needing more of those.. they are SO cool!

Papers and the square eyelet are from We R Memory Keepers. Grungeboard and fragments from Tim. The rubon (on the blue fragment) is from Basic Grey. I believe the orange metal piece is AMM. The chipboard (summertime) is Lil Davis. The metal star is Karen Foster. The yellow star button is Debbie Mumm. Inks from Stazon and CTMH. Paint is from Plaid. The dimensional happy embellishement is DCWV. Stamp used for the journal box is Stampabilities.

The title letters are grungeboard, painted with orange ink (that I mixed myself, since I didn't have any), then inked with StazOn. I also sanded the top lightly to make the stazon not so bright.

This layout was also an exercise in frugality... the center piece and the dotted circle are from the same piece of paper! I also cut a circular piece out from the base page to use under the fragments. I only used 2 pieces of paper for this layout!

This is so cool! I am completely challenged by small epoxy or vinyl tiles that are similar to Tim's, but you have really inspired me to use them up! Great job!
