Eid Story

IG username my_endy (Wendy), you're the winner for the Supplies On Hand Class! Congratulations! Please email me! (email button on the sidebar) I hope you'll enjoy and benefit from it :)

**********

Speaking of supplies... I have tons of brads because I love them so much. I use them a lot too.. but I'm buying more than what I'm able to use. And yet. . .  when I'm working on a project, I always think "hmmm, i have no brads for this layout" ... then I go out and buy more. LOL.

I have no brads...

When am I ever gonna use them all? Never, I think. Then I thought about this particular October Afternoon chipboards that I've used on another layout and decided to play around with what I have. 

Eid Story - process

Playtime. I decided to use my brads for the title. It won't look perfect but it's okay because the rest of the layout is gonna be straight and linear. By this time, I already know what the rest of the layout is gonna look like. This is supposed to be a short and sweet session but I'm anal so it took me a good couple of hours! I even took a break and went to the park with the kids in between.

This is weird for me to say, but I love the wonkiness of the 'story' part of the layout. This is my family, a little bit of wonkiness is to be expected. And oh! I get to use more brads than I've ever used on one single layout! WIN!

I still have enough brads for a couple more lifetimes, but hey. . . this is fun and using up what I already have! WIN for sure!
