Anyway! This post is going to be quite long, I apologize! I have two layouts to share in this post, so I just wanna cut right to it. The first one, I made using the May C'est Magnifique sketch..one of Nadia's gorgeous creations.
This layout is very special, because it is a gift for someone. It is not only a gift, but an apology gift. This is for my younger sister, Audrey, who is 14 years old. I don't want to go too far into it in a public post, but I have been less than a good sister to Audrey, and I have finally realized this, and it is time to be humble, apologize, and ask Audrey for forgiveness..I know from experience (it wasn't that long ago that I was a teenager, ya know..) that it can be extremely difficult being 14 years old. But without a big sister to turn to for advice, support, and friendship, I can't even imagine what it must be like..and it is SO unfair to Audrey that I have not been there for her as I should. So, I'm hoping that with my apology, and this layout I've made (I'd like to frame it for her) that she will forgive me and we can begin to rebuild a relationship.
So, here is my beautiful little sister..
I thought that Prima's Doodle Deux range was perfect for a fun, teenage girl layout. It's funny, when I first saw this collection, I hated it! Then, I decided I loved it, and bought the whole thing! I'm so glad I did, it's really been fun to work with.
Ok, on to the next thing...
Last week, I shared my first layout for the STARS In Their Eyes competition over at Scrappin' Patch. Well, week 2 has just been completed, and I'm so excited to say that I won this week, too!!! That's two weeks in a row!! I seriously don't mean to come off as bragging, I am just so thrilled with this. I worked really hard on both of the challenges, agonizing over every detail...and well, I'm just so excited!! Ok, thanks for letting me share :) On to my layout...the Star this week, was the amazing awesomely talented Missy Whidden...yep, I'm sure you know her, and know her super fun style!! If not, head over to Missy's blog and check her out, you'll be blown away!!! I really had fun interpreting her style. I used the sketch over at The Paper Variety, from Diana Fisher for this one. I love Diana's sketches, and have really been missing Sketchy Thursdays..so it was a real treat to work with this one.
Ok, thanks for putting up with my SUPER long post, very unlike me, I know!! We just have such a busy week here, I need to cram as much in where I can! Thanks for taking the time to look!! Have a great day.
