Layout About a Layout...

Hey everybody! I'm so excited because my introduction as guest host at "A Year In The Life of an Art Journal" is up! I hope you will stop by and say hello in the comments! It won't be long now til the prompts start! Yeayyyyy!

The current challenge at the Fave Things blog is to pick your favorite layout that you made in 2009. It was so much fun to go back and look through my 2009 albums, and there were a number that were extra close to my heart, but this is the one I picked as my favorite...

It's one I did for Marit's Top 2000 challenge, and I first posted it in this post. I had so much fun just making this layout - dancing to the video and singing "Mr. Jones and me, tell each other fairy tales...." all the while cutting and misting and painting. Everytime I see it it makes me happy all over again!

So, because I am making a separate album to house all my Fave Things layouts, I decided to make a layout about my fave layout - LOL! The sketch challenge at Studio Calico this past week was the perfect excuse to get it done. I used the Orchestra and Whodunit kits, and this is what I ended up with...

and then, in a super-fun coincidence, I got the COOLEST surprise in the mail!!! Marit sent me a fun handmade card, along with a portion of the actual newspaper from the Netherlands with the Top 2000 listed! - YEAYYYY!!! I think I will have to do a layout to showcase this memorabilia, don't you????? THANK YOU MARIT!!!
That's it for today folks! I hope you have a Terrific Tuesday, and I will see you tomorrow with another update! Thanks soooooo much for stopping by!

Oh my... it was soooo fun to play the top 2000 week, and YES, that LO of you was/is beautiful!!!! And making a lo about an lo is awesome... These two make me happy and remind me of the awesome week we had. Have fun with the little piece of newspaper (If all ten participants came together, we could puzzle the complete list again into one again... wouldn't that be fun?!)

I just love how you made a layout about your page - just love that lime color! I too received a card and newspaper clipping from Marit, and it was so very very sweet and made me smile. I think I will do a layout or something with it and one or some of the pages. You have really inspired me! Have a great day and congrats on the GD! I look forward to seeing your creations

I got 1/10th of that newspaper column in the mail from Marit, too! Can't wait to see what you do with it. I love seeing what other people are doing with strips from that Amplify paper in the Dec SC kit. My favorite is the script alphabet, but the piano keys are a close second ;)
