I'm so excited to reveal my first Pink Ninjas layout since the new team and website were revealed this year!
So, let's get this party started!
Prompt - Resolutions
Technique - Use black & white photo
Pink Twist - Alphas
Be sure to pop on over to the Pink Ninjas blog to check out what the Legion of Awesomeness (otherwise known as the Pink Ninja Design Team) made for your inspiration (and you will NOT be disappointed or underinspired) and PLAY ALONG WITH US!! You know you wanna!
Almost everything on this layout is from the Ninja Addicts Three Little Birds kit.
I'm telling you (and I am NOT being compensated in any way for repeatedly saying this!) every time I look through this kit I notice something new and awesome - it's just that stuffed with juicy goodness!
The only things not from the kit are some Glimmer Mist used with a Heidi Swapp flower mask, a large Martha Stewart border punch (used on the pink woodgrain paper - LOVE that), and some Martha Stewart microbeads.
Love the gorgeous pink tuille, the Felties snail ("be the snail"), the flowered ribbon, the acrylic pink mushroom, and can you see it? The pink iridescent ponchello??!!!!! It's that rad mesh stuff to the right of my picture.
Can you see the microbeads on the letters? They're my hot "pink twist". OMG I only bought a 3 pack of these beads and since making this layout I HAD to go get the entire sample pack. They are so much fun! And how stinkin cute are those wood panel chipboard letters??!!
"Relax" is my "one little word" resolution for 2010. My journaling says, "2010 resolution o*l*w - Just relax already! Calm the f**k down. Trust your first instinct. Enjoy the journey. Be the snail. Love them for all they're worth."
I used that "one little word" to encompass a lot of areas I am hoping to address this year. I stress about everything and I'm sick of it. It makes me quick tempered. Road rage is a daily occurrence. (My mantra in the car these past few days has been, "It doesn't matter. Maybe they really ARE in more of a hurry than you. It doesn't matter." Just because I'm going 60 in a 45 zone and they're riding my ass, apparently just because I'm in a mini van I am obviously going too slow and ~deep breath~ "It doesn't matter. Let them pass..." ) I stress about every little thing in every layout (which causes them all to take hours and you know I make a lot of layouts each week). And, funny enough I usually like best the layouts that I did in a hurry. I need to relax in every aspect of my life. Stop and remember my priorities are to raise happy kids, get them wherever they need to be in one piece and without drama, and document our lives knowing that in 20 years or even 20 days no one that matters is scrutinizing every little aspect and detail of HOW I put it to paper. They'll just be happy it's there to begin with.
As a wise woman recently blogged, "sometimes when youre not ready,,, for anything,,, putting a bow in your hair makes it a tad bit easier,,,, sometimes,,,, " In my case, maybe a flower...
