On Hiatus...

Hey, everyone!  Last week I mentioned that I had been very busy recently. I recently got an awesome job opportunity to go abroad for about 7 months, so we packed up the apartment, put everything in storage...and off I went.  I'm very excited about this experience; the only downside is that I don't think I'll have much time to be crafty, which means my blog will not see much action the rest of this year.  However, I'll still be checking in on all my favorite bloggers and crafty friends and if you decide to keep following me, I should resurface around the end of December/beginning of January.

Thanks for everything...and happy kraftin'!  :o)


K Squared

Hey, everyone!  I made a layout a few weeks ago that I have yet to share here.  To say that I've been busy recently is a bit of an understatement...but more about that in a later post...Back to my layout...I stuck very close to a recent Studio Calico sketch when creating:
The photo was taken at one of my best friend's bachelorette parties a few weeks ago.  Her name is Kari, hence the "K Squared."

I hope everyone is enjoying their week...thanks for stopping by!

A Quick Layout Share

Good morning, everyone!  I'd like to pop in quickly and share a quick layout that I made.  I am currently taking a Studio Calico class called "Pop Off the Page 2."  It's taught by Jen Jockish and it's all about how to layer and add dimension to your layouts....something I definitely need help with.

The first week's challenge was to scrap lift a layout by one of the class contributors.  I chose to scrap lift a layout by Marcy Penner.  Here is the end result:
Definitely a bit out of my comfort zone and usual style, but I'm happy to keep learning all these fun techniques!
