Finished my collage layout for this month, 2012 Take Twelve challenge issued by Ella Publishing. It’s fun to capture moments at regular intervals, sort of like stop motion animations of our lives!

My layouts are really simple, starting with the photo collage block. I journal phrases to caption the photos I have included, then print it on matte photo paper. Decorations and embellishments are the final touches that I add in, just playing around with my supplies. I found the seamstress measuring tape in the attic and loving to use anything and everything in my layouts. I’m trying to destash… too much stuff around me!

So the coolest photo is the one with the giant teacup that is actually a planter – a new acquisition – that I hope will have green things growing within soon!
