Today!


I have 8 billion things to do today. Things I have to do and things I want to do! Any guesses as to which of these will actually get done! I was inspired to create the layout using the title of Today based on the challenge over at the Journaler's Junction. I had the opportunity to write an article in ScrapStreet.com Magazine featuring their very cool blog! I took these pictures the other morning before work. Yup, they were standing in the driveway. I wanted some pictures because I knew this fabulous kit was on the way from The Nook. Seriously, look at the colors and the mix of embellishments. I journaled to capture what this "Today" was like. It reads: "Today you...fought, hugged, screamed, argued, & hugged again. All before 8:00 a.m." Isn't that the way it is every day!

I wanted to create an interesting use for the ribbon in the kit so I made a criss-cross pattern using eyelets. It is all about threading the ribbon using a diagonal pattern. It was very easy to accomplish and I think it adds a nice touch to the layout. I like the idea of the ribbon overlapping and connecting--sorta like my kids do! If you would like specific directions for completing the ribbon effect, check out my technique class over at The Nook.

Hope your today is wonderful!
