This is my latest addition to the KI gallery.
It is based on Celeste Smith's challenge to scrap a hybrid layout.
I thought this would be good practice for me since my digi skills are soooo lacking!
And since KI has some fun new digital stuff, I thought I should definitely give it a whirl.
If I counted from the time I started playing/printing some of the digi stuff to the time I actually completed the layout, I am pretty sure this layout would set my record for time it took to complete a layout.
It had to have been hours!
And I printed out so much stuff!
I printed papers and tags and embellishments.
I printed stuff in their original colors and then changed the colors and printed them again.
I printed stuff in different sizes, etc., etc.
And all I ended up using was that round scalloped embellishment and those strips of scribbly paper near the bottom there.
But, hey, it is still officially a hybrid layout.
And I got lots of good practice.
In addition to printing out a bunch of KI digi stuff this weekend, I also worked on my layout class for the Sweet Memories Birthday Bash in August.
{if you are in the area, sign up and come scrap with us for the weekend!}
Here are some sneak peeks of a few of the layouts we will be making.

Hope your Monday was a good one!
