anything goes!

i'm so excited to be able to get crafty again! the holidays were AMAZING! filled with family and fun and fantastic memories for my little menn, but i didn't have that much time to get inky or sticky or crafty! so i'm ready for the routine of everyday life to settle back! and to start it off, i made a layout last night for the current challenge at paper smooches sparks - anything goes! what's not to love, and more importantly, how can i resist?! it's anything goes!! lol!

(plus it gives me an excuse to make a layout!) :)

i used lots of stamp sets from paper smooches - get outta town, happy camper, swanky snowdudes, alphadot and perpetual bliss! whew! 

 please excuse the photos - i'm clearly still a newbie when it comes to photographing my layouts, and that dang flash on my camera always floods my images! lol!

let's see, i did some layering, and paper piecing (the campfire and the suitcases!) and added some super fun vellum arrows from studio calico - which are just plain fun! and of course, there are thickers for the main title. 

i included a tag i made in the stripped grey bag with some journalling - something i RARELY do! ha ha! i totally love journaling on other people's layouts, but i always forget to include a spot on my layout for it! so it's either hidden or not there, because hey, i know what it's about, right?! lol! :)

ha! sigh...i still have some learning and tweaking to do on my style! so anyway, that's it! and it's friday - so good things all around!!
