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!
