the gallery updates for the december kits were posted a few days ago. i'm just now getting to posting mine here. i'm a little behind you might say. i have to say i was a major fail at donkey kong. i got stuck on this layout for two days. ai yi yi. but then i was all set to hit the comeback trail friday night when may mentioned a new trn that i needed to read. i quickly realized i hadn't read the book before that one in the series, so there you go. friday and saturday both blown. ooop!
let's see. the background and the cute smiley stamp were both from the main kit. lots of the rest is from the antiquarian kit. like the pennant is punched from that old fruit label. i got to use the new jenni bowlin for fiskars pennant and blue ribbon punches. happy day there for sure.
and here is the page i showed a peek of last week. i think it was last week anyway. this one is based on a sketch article i did for the december seminar at masterful scrapbook design. this was a super fun month at masterful as the topic was the canvas, something i love to experiment with. here's a fun tip about masterful . . . each sub runs for 30 (or is it 31?) days . . . so if you join now you get ALL of december plus whatever goes up in the first 12 or so days of january . . . so you'd definitely get the january seminar write-up (which is always awesome) plus at least a couple interviews (i know betsy sammarco and kelly purkey are up for january! excited about those!). it's a great deal and always SO much great info.
and so. 3 more days of school after today. woot! oh. and yesterday we got home from school and discovered our cichlids had 100 more babies. we still had 8 babies left from the last batch. we managed to talk petco into taking the 5 biggiest. but oy. we're gonna have to find a new home for these fish. when the boy who sold them to me told me they were easy to breed i didn't think he meant that easy.
