Here is a peek at this week's Scrapbook Steals Mid Week Mojo. If you want more information or to participate, check out the blog post here. Initially, the plan was for me to tackle this tomorrow because my husband and I were going to go on a day trip to Utah (6 hour drive each way) but I had the notion to check the business hours of one of our stops even though I was certain they'd be open today and their Facebook page stated that they were 'closed until Monday' under the hours of operation. I managed to call and get in touch even though they were closed so I could confirm which meant completely changing our plans around. I'm glad to find out before leaving, even if it was at the last minute than to have driven up there and find out but that left me with extra time last night. I decided to try and start this layout. After a few unsuccessful attempts with a few collections, I gave up for a while and came back to it with the decision to use my March Cocoa Daisy kit. I used the same color palette as I did the last time I used this particular kit and oddly enough, used layering in both layouts as well. The last layout was of my oldest and this one is of my youngest, so at least they won't be going in the same album. ;)
This cluster consists of the same elements with the exception of the arrow. The arrow is either from Freckled Fawn or 2 Peas in a Bucket, I'm not sure which. I needed something to into the paperclip that I added above the title and I decided on the white because it was a nice pop against all of the heavier grey elements. It is all so simple to explain, but it took me a lot of messing around, digging through my stash, and pulling apart glued layers to reach this final result. Individually, the clusters are appealing to me, but I'm not so sure if the embellishments work with the photos or competes with them too much. Let me know what you think!
Thanks for stopping by!
