Essential Element

There are sooo many ways my husband is essential in my life.  His help in my work is just one of them.  He jokes and calls himself an 'unpaid migrant worker.'  Of course, now that he is retired and no longer travels for his own business, he only migrates between his workshop and mine.
For the layout, I used a bunch of Basic Grey product in little bits to build the patterns like you might build a window treatment.  I don't think I'd ever get to use this many fabrics on one treatment though.  Ha!  I'm submitting this for the Two Peas Products Every Which Way challenge this month that calls for Rub-ons. These are my least used embellishment.  Fortunately, I had these stored with the paper even though they are two different collections.  The rub-ons were great here for connecting some of my elements together.

I printed the journaling and the outline of the title.  The title is WordArt that is just a black outline of letters. Then I used colored pencils to do a graduated fill in.

Most of these buttons are the 'extra's from clothes.  I finally raided my button box one day and I know most of these clothes I don't own anymore.

I think I'll get back to some holiday cards this weekend to add to the Operation Write Home box.  Do you have any crafty plans?

Thanks for visiting!

Ingredients:  All Basic Grey - Marrakesh collection paper and stickers, Boxer rub-ons, Basics Collection ledger paper.


  1. great layout! good luck @ 2 peas.

  2. Great layout. I don't think I have ever voluntarily used a rub on. I have some, but they all came in goodie bags. Guess I should use them. TFS your page and your hubby with us.

  3. I love the flow and all the color on your layout! Good luck with the challenge. I do not even own any rub-ons anymore, that's how little I use them.

  4. Terrific page! I love all the patterns going on. You tied it all together so beautifully!
