My yesterday creations....

so I did get some time to play yesterday--the kiddos ALL went out to play!  It was nice to know they were having fun and would be nice to one another when they got home--that was the plan anyway....
So my daughter plays soccer, actually all my kiddos do.  I thought I should do something with all those pictures I take.  So I printed out the best ones and made a collage.  It came together quickly, the trick is to start with the largest and build around it.  (I know not very technical, but let's face it I'm not technical!)  I even had pictures left over for my daughter to play with.  This page will go along side her team photo, and I will probably not add any journaling, I think they speak for themselves for once.  
I was pretty excited about the supplies used.  That strip of paper was in my card making things and was the last bit of that paper, it worked PERFECTLY!  The letters were also leftovers, and the brads were new that I bought from Crop Chocolate.  LOVE them!--they have a one item best priced deal, then after 6pm MST they have another offer for a really low price.  So far I have really only seen Making Memories items.  But I have bought from them twice, their shipping is SUPER quick!  

Anyway, for the supplies:
pattern paper: American Crafts
letters: American Crafts
brads: Making memories
cardstock: Bazzill

For the other layout I did my assignment for Creative Scrappers I can't show you the layout just yet (I know how mean!) but here is a closeup of the embellishment:
I'm happy with the results, although it seemed to take forever to find just the right paper!  (I hate it when it takes as long to find the stuff as it does to create..)  The reveal I believe is this Sunday so I'll be able to share then.  I do have a stack of paper with a photo I want to work on today, it's actually been sitting here for a couple of days while my thoughts percolate a little....Hopefully I will be able to make something of it! :)  Thanks for stopping by today!
