031615 CKC March Challenge #3
March's Counterfeit Kit Challenge #3 was an interesting one, to say the least!
Challenge #3 On Your Desk...
This challenge should have been called, "True Confessions"!
Take a look at your desk RIGHT NOW.
Messy? Pile it on, ink it up, layer it on.
Neat & tidy? Go for the minimalist approach.
Here was my desk:
Surprisingly the only thing in disorder are the wood veneer pieces to the left,
but I wouldn't by any stretch be inspired to minimalism by this desk!
So - off to troll the Magic Blue Box for whatever will help tell
my story in a way that might be dubbed organized clutter ;~)
This past Saturday was Pi Day - the only time this entire century
that represents the numerals in the mathematical value of Pi.
We took this great photo to commemorate the event.
I grabbed that striped washi from my stash to create some borders
a la another Master Forger - Lynnette's Challenge #2 layout see HERE.
The pie chart paper play on words as part of the matting was irresistible!
I used the wood veneer frame to highlight the exact moment on the clock.
The #1 tab reinforces the once in a lifetime aspect of Pi Day.
The tiny circle Capture/Document stamp was added to fill up that little space.
You might think that the flair on the camera lens should say Math instead
of Science but as I know from my scientist hubby the two are inseparable.
Continuing the circle theme I added the globe with a little
banner element pointing at Michigan to mark where we were at the time.
The punched circles on the top photo mat were total serendipity, a leftover scrap found
tucked in with the 6x6" paper pad that I used for some of the accent papers.
As I've mentioned lately I am dressing up my pages a little by using
some subtle stamping to give it some little finishing touches.
The wooden arrow was printed on the journaling card,
but I added a tiny arrow with a "this is:" sentiment &
below that "Highlight #Hooray" accented with an enamel dot.
The MME flair pin got dressed up with a little ribbon.
Please join us in this innovative inspiration from CKC!
