Weekend Stuff.

First of all, I am happy to say that I purchased my very first Idea Book this weekend:

Elsie is just amazing. Her layouts are both fun and heartfelt...not to mention gorgeous! Just a quick flip through gave me the inspiration to fix a layout that I really wasn't happy with. This one started out as a horizontal 8 1/2 x 11 on Kraft cardstock. I liked certain elements (the photo and the tag) but it just wasn't 'doing it' for me. This is the final version:

Now I just need to get the Freestyle book! And maybe the designing with type book.

I just ordered my Elsie book from Ebay last night. Can't wait to get it. I find her work very inspiring.

Fabulous layout! Love the fun, whimsical feel of it. :-)
