Using sequence photos on a page

I got carried away the other day and purged my supplies.
They were getting extremely overwhelming 
especially after learning to use limited supplies while
on the road.
So my "box" of precut diecuts - gone.
The ginourmous basket of scraps - sortof gone.
Annoying basket of "stuff" - sorted through.
 I started this page with a piece of cardstock that was
an odd shape that worked when I cut it down to 8.5x11
as I love working with that size.
I did some misting and splatting and paints to start it off.
 I also had some basic grey papers that I used to cutout circles
in order to make my own embellishments and then
used a creative cafe circle stamp.
This was a fun silly page to make.
The photograph came all attached and I built this page
out of scraps AND did it prior to having a photo.
For some reason I had whacked the mat up (instead of leaving it 4x6)
or thereabouts and then came upon this picture.
So I whacked up the photo after printing it and adhered
it to the mats - total win.
And since I'm annoyed at thickers I broke out my QK again
using the CK typewriter and newsclip fonts.

Broke out the QK alphas for a title

Did a bit of cluster up in the mid corner
- I adore twine and you can probably find it
on the majority of my pages.
It used to be flowers.
A close up of the cluster I have going on 
in the upper left corner.
I love clusters - however, I do have my moments with them.
I like to have everything peek out and sometimes
it just doesn't work out that way.
 You can see I used a roller stamp around things as
it does add a bit more layers.
And a itty bitty cluster left bottom.
 And there's another tiny cluster near the title.
of which I have/had a ton of thickers
and while I love thickers - there are certain letters that
seem to go really really fast.
And its annoying - especially when I love the font.

 So......I remember back in the day (ahem)
when die cuts and not stickers were the in thing.
I have decided for the moment, because I'm annoyed,
that I'll been leaning toward my die cut alphas.
Until they annoy me LOL.
It also helps in using up excess stash.
Had fun with the favorite youngest son - please
keep him in your prayers :)
This is a mix of Studio Calico, Basic Grey and Doodle bug papers.

Going toward the boyside

 When you have boys you gotta
roll with some
masculine looking papers
 and don't Basic Grey just fit the bill.
Love that little cluster using a semi-new sissix die set.
I used it a lot in my mixed media road journal.
 Nothing real tricky going on - I did get
carried away and did some messy stitching around the edges.
And love those wooden hearts.

Sweet little photo that doesn't really
have any journaling to go with it so I went
with this title because I loved the
print font even though it states the obvious.

Heat embossing, how could I forget?

I remember when heat bossing was really popular.
moving right along.
I loved it of course and had all the bells and whistles
that have taken up space in my drawer
until today.
I loovveee the look.
I did get it everywhere because being the patient person
that I am I didn't wait for other things
to dry and the embossing powder stuck to other things.
Or I could say I planned it.
 The hearts are a Recollections stencil and I decided
that the kraft flower punch needed some pizzazz too and I
kept it the same in keeping with the sort of monochromatic theme
I have going on.
 Love the Shimelle and Studio Calico library stamps.
 In my die cut box I found a bunch of leaves that worked
along with that tag at the top.
So you'll notice I sort of had the lefthand design thing
going on and I sort of went diagonal.
It worked and I love it too.

Birds of a feather

I had to highlight this photo as its two grandkids
in 2 different states wearing similar
shirts on back to school day.
How fun is that.
 A new Studio Calico kit fit the bill for a title
I already had picked out - I know!!!!
Love the bird and star transparencies and I wanted
them to have dimension so I used Zots
that you can see but I think it looks cool.
 Loooovvvveee the paper too so I didn't mess
with it too much - added a circle
and then put everything around it.
 It's sort of a different look for me. 
I love it.
And of course how adorable are them two.

ALL Studio Calico except for the thread & LillyBee alphas.
