The Find

Remember a few posts back when I shared the score of the summer...$5 Royal yellow typewriter?
In June I scrapped a layout about it.
A layout about your typewriter you ask..?
yep ;) I'm crazy like that.
Anyway, it was for my July guest designer spot at October Afternoon and I can't remember if they featured it so I thought I would.

And a little tid bit (do people say "tid bit" anymore?) of info about it...the design of the layout came from a McDonald's ad found in a parenting magazine.

Could you tell that from the layout? ;D

If your anything like me you probably have your share of magazines. Once I've had them awhile and before tossing them I search the advertisements and articles for designs, layouts, or color combos that catch my eye and jot them down in one of these. It makes me feel like the magazine has done double duty and then I have a little journal of inspiration for crafty times!

In other news, I found out this week that I am among a few other ladies (including my talented friend Sam) joining the team at May Arts as a blog contributor. This means I get to play around with beautiful ribbons and trim and then show you the outcome! Very honored to say the least.

Anyone have fun weekend plans? We are finishing changing up the boys' rooms a bit...a bunk bed for Aven and a (GASP!) twin bed for Paxton. That means our home will no longer have a crib in it.
It's been 5 years since we have been without a crib in the house.
I don't know how to feel about that.

Wishing you a lovely weekend!
