My First two Shimelle pages

Day off today and I had some lovely crafty time while the boys played quietly - bliss!!!
Shimelle's first prompt was to create a page using strips of patterned papers. This is a great way to use up scraps. Here is my LO
The papers are a mix of Rusty Pickle and Basic Grey and were all scraps. The second prompt was to use patterned papers as your base instead of plain cardstock. I used a kit that I got at a bargain price from TK Maxx  and here is my page
I haven't added a title yet as I was struggling to come up with something and couldn't decide what colour lettering to use- any suggestions welcome.
My final piece of crafting today was my latest journal page for my He-Art Journal. This week was "think of a number"

Wish all my days off were as pleasant as this one has been. It's my birthday tomorrow, maybe I'll be allowed crafty time again :0)

thanks for stopping by

Nice job on your layouts. Isn't it fun to use up scraps? I vow to bust out my paper today to get something made from all of my scraps. :D
