I made a booboo the other night. I was trying to change the blog skin/template when I accidentally pressed a button. It says there that widgets (whatever that is) will be lost and I need to confirm that. Stupid as I am, I did hehehe. Now, if you're wondering what happened to my blog, I think I answered you already ; )
Truth is, I really think the blog needs a complete overhaul. I want a clean look this time; free from clutter. I want minimal listings on the 2nd column too and of course, a nice blog banner. I want to update Jeff's portfolio too. I'm still looking for a new template that will suit our needs. Hope to have the new look soon.
Anyway, here's the very last 2008 layout that I have. This was supposed to come out in one of the issues of Scrapbytes before the Scrappin' Moms decided we needed a break.
I used Making Memories and Ki Memories papers for this project (the black background is not part of the layout just to clarify). I think I brought out all the embellishments I could possibly use for this layout - felt and paper flowers (Prima, Making Memories, Fancy Pants), blings, ribbon, (Daisy Bucket) and chipboard (Ki Memories, Scenic Route). I also dooddled the title. To color the flourishes and letters, I used Faber Castell water color pencils.
When I looked at my layouts for the past 3 years, it's funny that I have always resented the color pink for my layouts when in fact I have more than enough of pink layouts! Contrary to what I believe in, I have used lots of pinks in my previous layouts but I just didn't realize or notice that. So that means I'm not pink challenged at all! Here are some of my pink layouts ...
