CS #116 and a whole lotta yellow!!

Hey, all! I've been a little out of touch recently. I am lucky enough to currently have my Dad in town visiting, but that means not a lot of time for scrapping!

I did, however, get a chance to play along with Creative Scrappers this morning. I loved the sketch so much, that I pretty much followed it exactly...plus I was able to break the paint back out again, since the sketch actually included paint splatters! :) And because I used paint, this layout is also for The Studio Challenges August 1st challenge, which was to use paint, mist, ink, etc on your layout...

Here's my layout:
That's a whole lotta yellow, huh? I realized that it's not a color that I use too much, so I'm excited that I was able to use it today - it's so bright and cheery that I really should use it more often.

I also tried a new journaling technique with this layout: I typed my journaling into Microsoft Word, then I turned it white, and highlighted it in black. So, when I printed it off, it looked like white ink...I've heard of this idea for awhile, but this seemed like the perfect time to try it for myself!

Have a happy day and an even better week...and as always, thanks for stopping by!
