Layout #4 - Do You Remember?


After having so much fun making my last layout, this one seemed like a real chore, I gotta tell ya! It started off going great - I had the photos, the papers, a concept in mind, and this sketch from Get Picky:
I started scrapping away and then thought, "Oh no, my layout is totally bottom heavy!" I was really stumped, and that's when I added a couple more clouds and the bubble wrap/paint stamping, but ugh! I don't know, am I wrong?

The other problem is that the journaling is really faint, but here's what it says: "Grandma likes to tell us about how her mom would do these finger curls in her baby brothers' hair! It didn't ever work for Nolan or Ailis, but Brenna's hair did it! We all laughed and called her "Elvis Baby"!"

I must admit that I loooooove these photos, they really show Brenna's personality even at 11 months old! Along with Get Picky, I'm entering this layout in three other challenges:

Scrap Your Crap wants to see us scrap with 50% of our newest products along with 50% of our oldest stash. Well, those buttons, sequins, and Prima flowers are VERY old, as is the mulberry paper I used for the clouds, and the papers I used are among my newest purchases.

Scrapbooker's Anonymous A-Z Challenge is on letter F this month, and I used two Fancy Pants papers from the Baby Mine collection for this page.

Bird is the Word's prompt is "Remember". I knew I had a "Remember" stamp in my stash somewhere, and I found it and realized that even though it's one of my older sets, it's never been inked up!

Supplies: Fancy Pants and Webster's patterned papers, Kaiser jewels, Queen & Co sequins and brads, Close to My Heart ink and stamp, Sakura pen, DecoArt paint, Prima flowers, unknown buttons and mulberry paper

  22. Ooooo ... SO cute! I can't believe I didn't check this out ages ago! You were so sweet to comment on my Get Picky entry and I totally forgot to pop over here and look at yours. And now I can't believe it didn't win! OMG!!! It is so cute!!! The clouds are to die for. The birds ... I can't even describe how stinking cute they are. And you totally nailed the sketch. It sounds like you have my problem which is that white space scares me but hon, you did it just right! Awesome, awesome, awesome!!
