It's raining out. Pouring actually. And along with the rain comes the obligatory gray skies and low temperatures so it is the perfect day to stay inside and organize. Yes, I said organize.
I realize that it probably makes me strange, but I honestly love to reorganize stuff, especially scrapbooking supplies. There is something so satisfying about having everything neat and tidy. Plus it's almost as good as going shopping because when I take the time to organize my stash I usually stumble upon all kinds of neat stuff that I had forgotten I had.
As I cleaned up today I uncovered my neglected stack of K & Co. designer paper pads. I went through a phase where I pretty much bought anything and everything K & Co. put out so it is a big stack. One of my favorites is the Wild Saffron line. I love all the big swirls and butterflies.
I didn't think I would be able to make a layout for Sketchy Thurdays 6.03 challenge but when I saw the Green Swirls paper in my Wild Saffron pad I immediately had an idea for a page based on the sketch and it came together really quickly.
I usually like to mix and match and use a variety of manufactures and lines in my projects but literally everything, well okay not the marker, but everything else is from the K & Co. Wild Saffron Line. I tried to sneak a couple other elements in but in the end this turned out to be a true KISS (keep it simple Sarah) page. A bit of a departure for me but I think I kind of like it.
My kids are playing nicely so I am going to see if I can sneak another page in this afternoon. I have a lot of nice stuff to use up so I can justify buying new stuff!
