Good Company ...

I think I have been burning out a bit when it comes to creativity ... I just haven't had it in me. So I went to a crop at POTP on the weekend and sat with Hayley (not my Hayley), Carrie and Sara ... and it was good! I wasn't helping in the store, i was just there to crop and enjoy myself and honestly it was the best time i have had at a crop in a long long time ... I got there just as Hayley & Co were about to head of for lunch so i cranked my ipod and just let my creativity rip ... and when the girls were back from lunch i turned off the tunes and just really enjoyed some light hearted conversations and laughter ... first time in a real long time for that. I managed to make three layouts and started on a 4th ... here are the two of the four.

This is my fave layout ... I used stuff from most of my fave manufacturers ... Collage Press, 7 Gypsies, Prima, Maya Road & Fontwerks. The stamped title/journalling is purposely obscured ... it reads .... these boots will set you free ... and so far, irl, these boots have been on lots of adventures with my Hayley!

A work in Progress ... again using product by my fave companies ... Tattered Angels, Websters Pages, Basic Grey and of course Tim Holtz. The flowers were made with pages of a novel (dont worry it's a spare i picked up at the thrit store ... and i always used pages from books that mean something to me ... kind of double memory type thing) ... okay .... where was I? oh yeah ... I used the Tim Holtz film strip ribbon as leaves for the flowers and at the end of the title ... the eye in the filmstrip is from another photo of my dd.

Thanks so much for stopping by ... and thanks for taking a peek at my layouts! I truly had a blast creating them!
