When i think of all i created for CHA, my head gets a little dizzy. I did a total of 14 layouts, 3 mini albums, 11 tags, and a canvas hip bag. All in all it was 29 projects. CRAZY. You have seen a lot of them here on my blog as i shared all my TCW creations. Today i am sharing 3 layouts i did for the Maya Road booth.
First up is Anthony or as i call him Ant Man. He's growing up all too quickly. He's my baby so it's hard to see him turning into a young man. This photo i captured a while ago and i love all that it represents. He is finding his own path as graduation isn't too far away.
i love how easy this layout came together. i used a lot of canvas & burlap pieces that i colored with Maya mists. The kraft complements the layout & patterned paper from My Mind's Eye. Totally digging the wood ruler & transparent camera that speak of his passion and finding his path.
These two munchkins have captured my heart. Alexi is their nanny over the summer. Two of the sweetest girls who spend time here crafting with us. Of course i encourage enable them to create always!
On this layout I used lots of sweet colors to capture the essence of these girls. The camera stamp is embossed in black. The frame chipboard was painted white. i covered the interior with fabric tape and then added the heart & bow. i love the white flower in the background layered with the cool vintage sequins blossoms. The paper twine looked so good unraveled and layered on the grey burlap trim. This layout makes me smile.
Oh, how this layout makes me laugh. i might be considered by some to be a prankster. David, one of the owner's of Maya Road, is such a good guy. i mean really good. He shuttles all of us women around CHA. He works so hard in the booth. But he too is a prankster. So when he mistakenly told me it takes an X chromosome (thinking he said Y) to do something, i have never let him live it down. i just knew i would have to create a layout for Maya Road to document this moment. i was laughing a lot as i was creating it. Lisa Pace & Emily Pitts were my co-conspirators, giggling with me knowing it was going in the booth. i kept it from him until David went to go look for layouts for the catalog for Maya Road. He actually selected this one as a good one to use...that is until he noticed the details of the layout. i so wish i could have been there to see his face.
And yet he was such a good sport about it. I love being part of the Maya Road team.
I wanted to make this layout pretty just for David. There is something both feminine & masculine about it (both X & Y ;) The black rub-ons are called David. The X is in pink glitter. Let's just say David isn't a fan of glitter. I love all the black splatters and rub-on stars. The camera is perfect for the photos Lisa & i took last year documenting the "working hard or hardly working, David."
i love that these layouts reflect my need for storytelling. i hope you enjoyed these stories too!
