*I did it*

I used to do it all the time.
I made a point back when I first started...keep doing it.
then...one day, I just stopped doing it.

Until now.















Yes, you're seeing correctly.
that IS 2 pages.
I did it.
I really did. a 2 page spread.
I won't lie and say it didn't stress me out.
because it did. why? no clue....it just did.
it took me 3 days total to get it all finished.
Is it ok to say I LOVE IT?
Because I do!
I'm proud of me.

See...I'm already using my word for 2011....I had strength.
I persevered. I went beyond my comfort zone. I stepped out of that box.

Supplies used: 
-felt pieces (circles, stars) :   Wendy Hammer Designs
-cardstock, letters, patterned paper, buttons, ink, ribbon:  American Crafts
(& some of the Nov. Studio Calico kit. Some of the add on too.)

That 2 page layout is total perfection! I LOVE how you were able to incorporate so many photos and still make it so fun & vibrant! Super cool placement and choices of embellishments. Definitely inspiring! Will refer to this when I am brave enough to tackle a 2 page layout!
