It's Girl Scout cookie season, and that means that unless I have a box of cookies in hand, I am going through some intense withdrawal.
I documented this most wonderful and unhealthy (physically and mentally) time of year with some help from the Antiquarian kit, which contains a series of tickets that I stitched in a row. The numbers represent the number of boxes that I have consumed this year (nearly). Sure, there's a lot of jesting going on here, but at the core of it is a dark, dark truth about the way the cookie crumbles.
My second layout features layers of papers from the March Papercrafting kit, along with some stamped and stenciled images.Historian kit, and arranged the labels vertically on the left side and right side of the page.
The plus-sign stencil and wood veneer and stencil actually inspired this page. Initially they brought to mind the plus signs found attached to grades, and that got me thinking about my daughter's current state of mind regarding school and college and the pressures that she must be feeling these days. The journaling shifts the meaning of the plus signs by making them less about grades and more about positive thinking.
There wasn't much left intact after I worked my way through the kits this month, but I did manage to create a colorful little gift album for my daughter using the Mini-Album kit and the remnants of the Papercrafting and Antiquarian kits.
I'll have more album peeks to share this week on the JBS blog!
Thanks for visiting! :)
