Fluoride Fun

I love this layout! This photo just cracks me up and I was so excited to scrap it.

I've always had a hard time working with papers like this, with a large overall design. I really like the design I came up with, it keeps your eye focused on the photo even though it is a crazy busy paper.

I used a Freckled Fawn kit for my embellishments. I bought a few of their kits because I realized that I was quite low on embellishments that would go with lots of different lines. I really like their kits and LOVE the cute bags they come in. They've been really handy in my scraproom.

The title was easy to place, I just set one word above the line of the "chevron" and one below. 

In this little cluster, the A is for Audrey, the 5 is because she's five in this picture, and the heart is because I adore her. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Love

I'm back with another layout share! This layout was made because I really want to scrap myself more. I have been focusing on that quite a bit lately. Don't get me wrong, I still scrap my kids an insane amount of the time but I make it on to the page more often now.

Anyway, this layout was about a little shoe shopping splurge I did this spring. I had a list of shoes that I was wishing for over the previous summer and as soon as the summer shoes came out this year, I was on them!

I'd been binge watching Shimelle videos and I created my embellishment clusters using her technique of grounding them with a strip of washi tape in each area. It seems a little weird at first because I feel like the washi seems so random but once I add embellishments, it looks great!

I also dug out some rubons (!) and used them on this page. I hadn't used rubons in eons and had these Dear Lizzy gold ones just hanging out in my new stash area. I finally just made myself use them and I forgot how great they are! They really helped make this layout more interesting and more cohesive.

I also got to use one of my beloved pineapple embellishments because the insole of one of my shoes has pineapples on it!!! (That may or may not have had a little to do with my purchasing them.)

Has anyone else used rubons lately? Or am I the only one that kind of moved on from them for a while? I really don't think that I've even seen them offered as an option in product lines lately.

Thanks for stopping by!
