Summer is in full swing here and I’m having a blast. I’m not a OH-MY-GOD-IT’S-SUMMER-WE-HAVE-TO-DO-ALL-THE-THINGS person, but I am enjoying myself. There’s a lot going on here and it feels good to be a part of it.
Just to start off, right now I’m obsessed with doing my nails. OBSESSED. Tom is complaining of being on a continual high from the paint fumes but I can’t stop myself. Plus, I just discovered a quick-dry nail dropper that seems to prevent a lot of chipping. Hella cool. I’m currently sporting pink and gold nail polish, but this week it was all about the pink and grey. These nails were my favourite design as of yet. The rest of this layout is mostly weekend related. Tom and I usually run errands together on Saturdays, but lately we’ve been dividing and conquering. I stepped out on Saturday by myself to pick up some groceries and then went to Starbucks until my hair appointment. It was so much fun to just sit around and read for an hour. Definitely felt luxurious.
That afternoon I got a much needed haircut. I actually can’t remember the last time I cut my hair so it was definitely a necessity. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. I used Tracy Larson Simply White templates for the before and after shot. I layered digital cardstock on the white background to keep it from blending in with my white dividers. That’s one of the downsides of digital scrapbooking: I can’t use white filler cards. Tom and I went to the East Meets West festival later that evening and I was thrilled to try out some of the food trucks. We bought duck tots from Atilla the HUNgry and custom ice cream sandwiches from One Cool Cookie. So yummy! For our custom ice cream sandwiches, Tom ordered gingersnap cookies and peanut butter and chocolate ice cream while I opted for chocolate chip cookies and bubble gum ice cream. Heavenly! The next day we went to see Wicked at the Jubilee. I thought the two main actresses were fantastic, but the show really didn’t speak to me. It was okay but it kind of reminded me of Cats. At the end of it I was all, “Okay. So what?” Although, I can’t get the song Popular out of my head. I freaking love that song.
This layout was made with Paislee Press’ Weekender kit. I recolored some the elements to match the green from the Wicked poster. The poster was initially a little overpowering so I layered it over the woodgrain cardstock in the Weekender kit and adjusted the opacity on the poster layer. I’m thrilled with how it turned out. The original poster overwhelmed the layout.
Thanks for reading!
