A Few of My Favorite Things and Kalahari

I am going to share two layouts with you today before I go off to scrapbooking! The first one I created for Mercy Tiara's challenge on YouTube to create a layout about your favorite scrapbook things. Well, I just took a picture some of my goodies piled high on my desk and called it good. If I added all my favorite things to that picture, well.. it wouldn't all be in one picture!

I used Amy Tan's Yes Please collection and went to work! In the journaling I wrote that I love the creative outlet that scrapbooking brings me and I love all the cute supplies as well! Some of my favorites are my Cameo, patterned paper, enamel dots, and roller date stamps. I didn't even mention Thickers and wood veneer! The list could go on and on... 

I love those fun Thickers and I used an old stitching template from Bazzill to create those stitched letters! 

This next layout I created on a whim one night when I had a free hour. I put it together so fast! I just cut up strips of Amy Tan paper and put it all together! 

It was one of those layouts where I just could NOT come up with a title so I just went with a really generic one. That works sometimes, right? 

Lots of layering behind the photo as always and a wood veneer arrow to top it off! Thanks for looking and for your great comments!
