Hope your month's perking along famously!
As you know, I've been following and playing along at the CKC Blog this month. Their Challenge #1 was to use a 3-word title, 3 embellies and 3 patterned papers.
I did this- and here's the layout I created for the Challenge!
I called it "Happy Smiley Boy." It was so much fun to do this clean, simple LO!
I was able to use up some older supplies (THREE large scraps of patterned papers from 2007-8), a piece of burlap that I recycled, and some ribbon that I had misplaced, & which had found its' way back to me!
I put this on a background of Close To My Heart cardstock in "Chocolate" and used CTMH Dutch Blue CS to accent the journaling block. A touch of CTMH Twilight ink around that same block, and presto!
I LOVE it!
I used Arial as the font for the journaling. I admit that I use that one a LOT: it's my favorite font for clean and simple LOs.
The journaling reads:
Noah, you are such a happy person!
You enjoy life.
You smile a lot.
It’s easy to make you laugh, and even easier to make you giggle. J
It makes us, your family, feel good to know that despite the challenges life has thrown at you, you are content.
We love you, happy, smiley boy!
