We have reached the point in Spring where the skies are crystal blue, the foothills are snow free and starting to green-up and the back country peaks are heavily frosted in snow. I will never tire of that view.
Today, I've managed both really old photos and a really old kit. The photos are from 2005, of my now 14 y.o. The Bo Bunny line is from 2009, but I don't remember the name and I can't find even a sheet online to trace back to the name. It's one of their vintage Christmas looks, which they rotate in every couple of years. The sketch came from the PageMaps Layout - Week One class I took.
I had already used this kit on other layouts. The kit was heavy on paper to begin with (it wasn't an Apron Strings kit, which are always just right on paper ;). The kit didn't have many embellishments to begin with, so there wasn't anything to use on this page, which is pretty obvious given there are basically none. There are a few rhinestones in the upper left circle - hard to see in the photo.
If I'd been at home, I'd have pulled from my stash to do some layering. Shoot, if I'd planned even just a little before leaving for the crop, and glanced through my kit/photo pairs, I might have seen there were only rhinestones in the kit and tossed in a handful of stash items.
As it was, I worked with what I had. It was, also, my last layout of the night. This is one where, looking at the photo, I may break my own habit and actually go back and add something else. It feels and looks unfinished and I don't like that. Simple, clean - I can work with that, but this doesn't have that feel for me.
Maybe I can snag a few minutes to fluff it up a bit before I call it done.
