Note to Self Layout

Here is a picture of me riding one of my daughter's toys at the lake. Not sure who caught me doing this but it was the perfect size picture for this layout!

I'm loving this layout. Every time I walk past it I can see it sparkling. I was inspired by the sketch at Challenge Yourself #22.

I have also joined the challenge at Scrap Our Stash. The idea is to use an item for each letter in the word INKS. Here is my list:
I - ink (around tags)
N - notebook paper
K - knots (embroidery thread bows)
S - stars, sticker letters

There is also an Anything Goes challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp. I've linked this up to play along.
Paper - Pink Paislee: Hello Sunshine
Black letters - Echo Park: For the Record 2
Pink letters - Bella Blvd: Playdate kit
Frames - Heidi Swapp
Enamel Dots - MME: Now & Then - Dorothy
Grey on tags - Tim Holtz ink: Weathered Wood
Embroidery thread, stars, swirls: from the stash
Hole punch
Thanks for stopping by!
