Another layout to share today.  This one is for the current Pretty Little Studio sketch as well as Kerys from Scrappin' n' Happy's October challenge to use a one word title.

It's kind of a different layout for me since it's a photo that doesn't include people, but I wanted to capture this image of Carina's crib....which is gnawed down to bare wood.  The girl does not like to sleep!  Ellie, who is three years older, still sleeps more than Carina does.  We're lucky if we can eke a one hour nap out of her on the weekends.  I have to sit in the room until she falls's like she needs moral support to go to bed.  Her teacher told me, she's always the last kid to fall asleep....I guess she feels like there's nothing better to do once everyone else is asleep.

Anyway, this layout is a bit of an experiment with mist.  The circles were cut using my CM punch from cardstock that I misted.

I stitched them onto the layout, and then I unscrewed the cap and kind of painted a strip of the mist across the page by each of the circles.  Then I splattered some on also.  I think it looks OK.  Mist is so random, but somehow I feel that I need to practice more at it.

Sorry the photo is so screwy.  I'm going to try and retake it later when the sun is out.  The flash on the camera is such a pain when it comes to reflecting off photos.

Hope you had a good start to the week.  I pledge not to stay up late tonight watching a movie I have already seen at least twice on a cable....
