it's no secret that my austin trip was awesome, and largely due to kerry being the best tour guide ever. first thing we did after we dropped off my luggage was head to south congress to find me some cowboy boots. after we'd walked about a block or so we turned a corner and these are the shop fronts i saw... totally drooling. the colors & feel of austin are amazing, anyway i whipped my camera out and that's the exact moment i fell in love with austin.
this layout was one of those that was kind of like pulling teeth. more use of product i've been stashing away, and i even used the punched out holes from the die cut paper, yay! anyway, i still feel like it needs a little something in that one spot, but for now this is how it'll live for a bit. p.s. the we-r-memory keepers corner chomper is the best new tool out there. it makes me want to round everything!
i have a bunch of layout ideas in my head, a lot of them using the brooklyn pictures from last weekend, but they will have to wait for a little bit; classes to design and my trip to orlando for cha next week!
ooh! also, i'm planning another fall charity crop for the first weekend in november, possibly, and i'm looking for suggestions for the charity it will benefit. i was thinking save the music, but am now thinking about the salvation army, some sort of animal rescue charity or something else school related. any ideas?
