New Layouts

I made some of these layouts at CHA, while finishing the rest at home with papers and sketches I received there. The first was made with new PostIt papers from a 3M workshop I took. The papers are great, with removable sticky backs, and a big variety of colors. But PostIt has historically been expensive, and while the papers are very easy to use and convenient, the cost is prohibitive to me.
The second was also from the 3M workshop. The strip of paper made to look like pleated ribbon is PostIt brand, so it sticks to itself, giving it the pleated look. The flower is PostIt paper as well, torn and spiraled and stuck to itself to form a three dimensional flower.
I made the third page with papers received at the same workshop, but we just didn't have enough time to finish all the projects. The workshop should have been 1 and a half hours i/o just an hour. Anyway, I added a crocheted flower that my friend Linda made for me (thanks Linda!).
Altogether, between what I made in the workshop and what I brought home from it, adding a little more of my own supplies, I finished 12 pages. A great crafting weekend!!

I'm loving your layouts from CHA and sketches. Thanks for the compliment on the crocheted flower I did. Maybe you can do a tut on the post it note pad creation?
