Let Me

Supplies : Papers Adobe by American Crafts; Yellow Border from Monstrosity by Sassafras; Remarks Letter Stickers, Adobe Stickers, Dear Lizzy Rubons, and Button Flair by American Crafts; Journaling Lines stamp set and Pure Poppy Ink by Papertrey Ink; Yellow Candy Dots by Pebbles Inc., Just Chillin' Slice card and Slice by Making Memories; White Gel Pen;

Have you noticed all the projects I've been posting using my White Gel Pen. That's because it's the supply challenge at Practical Scrappers this week! I love white gel pens but before working on my project for the challenge I hadn't really been giving mine much love so that was fun motivator for me to use it more often again, especially on layouts. Here I used my pen to outline the cardstock title for some extra detail and along the bottom half of the layout for a thin frame. Make faux stitching with your white pen or just doodle some fun details, even journal on darker papers for a change like I did with Sunday's layout. This page also used another February Page Maps layout. As for the pictures, they are of Cait trying to help me sweep the walkway. She's at that age where she wants to help clean and tells me often that these are her 'chores'. Of course she'll do anything except clean her room, the one chore I want her to do, lol. I think every parent has this battle though. Most of my friends say that it's near impossible to get any of their kids to clean their rooms, yet other chores aren't nearly as bad. I can hope that will change, but I'm thinking I should just be happy that she wants to do other things to help without whining and complaining yet. Enjoy the layout and have a terrific Tuesday!

What a beautiful layout! I like the white pen. I can totally relate to your story too. :-) I have a helper but the room so much harder to get cleaned.
