Breathe, and an admission - Evalicious

Hi there!

I am up on the Evalicious blog today with a new project!  I had so much fun creating this page, it turned out a little different than I had anticipated but I love it more this way.  Originally my idea was to lay the elements out in a more linear fashion, but I ran out of room (that always happens to me) so I clustered up my journaling tags a bit more and it feels much more me this way.

I started by choosing a colourful array of journalling tags and pulled other elements in from my stash in the same scheme.  I wanted to keep some of the elements quiet to have my story as the focal point, so I used vellum as well.

I stamped some journal tags with one of the the Label It stamps, and trimmed them all out with scissors.

I used labels from the Love you Lots Snipsnip sheet, and the Real Life Snipsnip sheet and added the details of the day in snippets on all of these tags.

Then I set about embellishing, using some of Miscellany V1 and V2 puffy stickers... I just love these!  And some School's In V3 badge buttons, as well as some Vintage Maps flair.

And let's not forget this darling clip!

Now are you ready for my admission?  I totally thought the background paper was polka dots until I was finished! ha! What a nut!  Anyway, I love the colours, so it stays.  Don't focus and pretend you see polka dots too!

Thanks for visiting!  And don't forget to pop by the Evalicious blog to see what the rest of the team is up to!
