I know I say it every week, but Thank God it's Friday..LOL
it's been a very long working week for me this week, between my own job and having to stop by hubby's garage to help him out a bit.. I take care of some of the office work and the cleaning, Oh joy!!! LOL
Here is the layout:
I only had a few afternoons to work on this layout, I struggled a lot with the photos that I used and wasn't exactly sure which theme to go with until my best friend lent a helping hand..LOL
She suggested using bats and I just kind of went from there..
It was fun trying out something new. I've never distressed corrugated cardboard before and just went to town on it..I really love how this layout came out, although the lanterns could of been just a bit bigger..
ok, I'm rambling on and on again..LOL
