kitty robot!

the rad girls of kitty robot asked me a couple of months ago to be their guest designer this month, i of course said yes and they sent over some of their fun buttons for me to play with! here's what came about with my somewhat limited time;

"never not" is something that i've picked up from kristina's vernacular and it's beyond appropriate for this "never not looking for trouble" layout. the biggest picture is from our trip to philly to see the get up kids a week or so ago, and the others are just a couple of the many versions of photos of us looking for trouble over the past couple of years. loved the cute set of camera buttons, loved actually thinking to use my nestabilities on a layout & loved mixing a few of my current favorite papers & thickers.

i used one of the cameos from the deer cameo set on this card and mixed paper from cosmo cricket's "nutmeg" 6x6 paper pad & 12x12. also, you can't really tell in this photo, but i got my bling that perfect dark brown by coloring over yellow bling with a super dark brown copic marker. it's an easy way to get your bling to match whatever you are working on and it dries super quick. just remember to pick a marker that is just a couple shades darker than you want the final product to look, because the transparent nature of the bling lightens it a little.

seriously? loved this snowy town paper from basic grey's "eskimo kisses" collection as soon as i saw it, and these little kissing deer are perfect with it!
