pwp #14 - first craftshow

As you read this, the Craftmates are most likely having  the time of our life crafting at the Crop and Create event.  Never mind  that it starts at 8 in the morning and goes on until 12 midnight (and starts again at 8 tomorrow!).  Yes, folks, we are committed to be there from start to finish (I am just not sure if there will be a quick dinner and movie involved in between, ha!).

So anyway, since we are celebrating everything crafty this weekend, I think  it is quite fitting that I share with you the layout I made of the first craftshow we did last November.  Here is the link to the post we did on  this previously.

I have never been good at selling stuff (that’s why I never worked on sales) so I was not really expecting  to sell any during  the show.  The only reason I was there was to spend some time with my girls (and maybe have a free cupcake or two!).  But, boy, did we sell  and what a lot of fun it was!  We were even treated with a surprise visit from our sweet friend, Cindy, from North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard. 

Here is my layout...

I am entering this in Leigh Penner’s Pages with Papertrey.  The challenge  is to use elements repeatedly in your layout.  I used the splatter stamp from Precious Remembrance across the page and I also repeatedly stamped it within each cluster.  I am not sure I am in love with this whole splatter look.  But I went with it just to try something new. 

I was surprised though how much I love the colour black in this layout.  I would not normally go with black as a colour for patterned paper but I love it here mixed with my other bitty dots paper and how it is repeated with our black tops and black tag outline.  Here's a close up of the journaling.

I used Papertrey bitty dots paper, large oval dies, modern alphabet and script dies and simple sunflower stamp and die.  I also used a DCWV cardstock. 

Thanks for stopping by!
