Awake All Night–Kinda

Last night I had a creative streak and had to work on it. The family was in bed by 9:00 pm so I was awake and alone with all night to play.  Well I say all night, my eyeballs fell down at midnight and then I was back up at 4:00 am to work on the layouts some more.

  I guess my body understood before my brain that some elements on the layouts needed time to dry so it was nap time.



So the scallop edges were supposed to be “Honey” colored but when I mixed  the Honey re-inker with the Create –A – Shade pearl paint it came out more of a mustard color.  


I normally stick to vellum for my journaling but this time I trimmed down a piece of cardstock so it would fit in the printer and stepped out of my box and tried something new (to me). I love the way it turned out and I was able to use spell check (hee hee).




This little butterfly is from the Color Ready (Garden Z 1718) wooden shapes.  Out of all of the items I used last night, this little butterfly took the longest to make because it took so long to dry!  But I love how it came together and I still do not know how I was able to keep the colors from running together.   Did you notice that these layouts are about a date that Mike and I had but there are no pictures of us.  Opps – we forgot to take pictures of ourselves!
