I wanted to share this layout I made yesterday.
This is my 5th layout of the year...not a bad start...
I want to share it because initially it started as a "goof" and I wound up loving it!
Funny how that happens!
I believe in capturing the "everyday moments" in life as well as the "special" moments.
Being that I was bored and love to take "selfies", I figured a layout about Jury Duty would be something different and definitely capturing "real life" (because real life isn't always doing stuff we love)!
Journaling: "My 'stuck in jury duty' face.The only place I hate more than work!
Luckily they dismissed me at 10:40 A.M. and I spent the rest of the day at home. 1.13.16
Inspired by the following challenges -
>The January "Color Challenge" - Red and Gray- After joining I discovered, after going through my entire stash, that I had no gray paper!!! This is the closest I could get: a paper w/ gray polka dots all over it.
I also used gray 2 page flags and I'm wearing all gray in the photo.
>Scrap w/ Your Scraps- the red photo mat paper is from my scrap box
- the BG paper, washi tape, self-adhesive pearls, tiny alphas, and stamps have been in my stash for at least 3 years
(the stamps were the first set I ever bought...back in 2006)
>Use Your Stamps Challenge
- Stamped part of the title
>The Sticker Challenge
- used 2 embellishment stickers and 4 alpha stickers
>"Challenge YOUrself" - First Challenge of the year "Anything Goes".
- You can create any project you want as long as it includes a photo of you.
Thanks to all the above challenges for helping me make a layout that despite the depressing theme and photo, makes me smile!
Good News, I'm done w/ Jury Duty for at least another year! Yay!
