Day 2

Well day 2 is officially a success :) But now I'm in the mood to craft some more! Good though because that's what this challenge is about! Keeping my mojo up and making myself happy! So I had some happy time this afternoon while the Bean (Macyn for those readers that don't know her nickname) was playing with her daddy (who was home from school before he went to work) So I pulled out a kit I bought awhile ago.

The kit is Hello Sunshine by American Crafts. When I bought this kit, I REALLY wasn't sure about it. I don't much like pastel colors, and when I saw this all I really saw was pastels. Well I opened it for the first time today, and I LOVE it!! My FAVORITE thing about it is that they have these really cool kraft colored papers but they have patterns on one side! They are very cool! The colors aren't even pastel really, they are really pretty warm colors! Fun combos, seriously!

Okay now that I've raved enough about Hello Sunshine, lets move onto the page! I used a new sketch by Basic Grey. They posted this up on their blog today, and even though I didn't use any Basic Grey (because I'm working on Macyn's birthday book still and I didn't have any BG kits that matched really) I loved this sketch and how the page turned out.

Here's the sketch:

and here is my page: I promise the picture doesn't do the kit justice (and the flash made the thickers, for the word "gifts", look shiny and they aren't really that shiny) I love how it turned out :)

Well Day 2 is done! Now on to day 3! :)
