This layout was actually inspired by the little man himself and this photo of him, which I've had printed for ages and never figured out how to use it. Every now and then he gets the urge to sit and have some craft time with me (not very often at all but it can happen..) so I give him scrap paper, pair of scissors, some glue and he goes to town.
He typically draws something, sticks on some enamel dots or washi tape, cuts it out, sticks it on another piece of paper, and repeats until he's bored. This time he'd cut some wonky shapes, including circles and I thought they looked cute so I asked him to cut some more using pattern paper I liked. Then I just sewed them together to form a garland and looped them around the page, kinda like paper bubbles...just so you can follow my logic ;)
Popped photo in the middle and added some embellishments. Done! I spent more time putting those little bits and pieces on than Zack took cutting those circles....which wasn't exactly speedy ;)
I'm excited to say that I'm on leave as of tomorrow too! A whole 10 days of no work! 10 days! YAYYYYY! No plans, will be spent packing up the rest of the house and getting ready for the renovations to finally start (yay! and argh!) but I'm not getting up 5am to drive to work so that's a reason to celebrate all in itself!
Hope your week has been a good one!
