Big Kid Now

I am back with another layout inspired from Shimelle's class, the 20 Project.

This is for challenge #9: to add texture with embossing folders.

Now I don't have a ton of embossing folders, but I have enough that I should think to use them on projects more than I do. 

I found the perfect sketch for this layout and challenge that you can find here at PageMaps. 

This sketch allowed me to use tiny amounts of this potty training paper that I purchase LONG ago. Figured it worked in small doses. It also allowed me to use my embossing folders on some of the smaller pieces and I love how it turned out! The chevron is from Amy Tangerine and the swiss dots, from Cuttlebug.

Used a few stamps from Ali Edwards' Story Stamps for a little added detail.

No surprise from me that I had too much to say in the amount of space that I had. I wish I would have had the font a bit bigger because it is a bit tiny, but hey, the story is told. You just may have to use a magnifying glass to read it :)

So with the exception of the potty paper, the rest of the supplies came from SEI. I used to receive their monthly kit and add-ons, and still have a ton of it left that needs to be used or purged. 

Used my tiny attacher to secure the ribbon.

I think I have learned a big lesson with Shimelle's class. With starting out with a timer and seeing what I could accomplish in 20 minutes in the beginning, I have learned that I don't need hours set aside to complete layouts. Most of the layouts that I have completed have been done in one or two nap times. I used to think I didn't have time to get anything done during my daughter's naps, but these challenges have taught me otherwise. 

Now for my least favorite part, putting all the pages away in albums!
