I've started scrapbooking again - which is always fun. I have an album for each year - but got seriously behind in 2005 when we opened a family business - and I decided the start of the New Year was a great time to get going again. This is the first page in my 2009 book - because it is the from the first photo shoot I did in 2009. The page is pretty basic - but I like it all the same. Maybe its because of the adorable baby in the photo. She is my newest "great" niece, Layla. Isn't she beautiful?????
I created this layout digitally and created the pink polka dot paper myself. The other items are "freebies" from Scrap Girls. The thing I like best about digital scrapping is that the products aren't "consumable". I can use them again and again on different layouts - changing color, shape, texture, etc as I go. Talk about "cost effective!" I also enjoy not having a mess to clean up!!!
Today's card was created for a Splitcoast challenge "Ways to Use It". The challenge (which wasn't very challenging) was to use stripes on your project.
The image is a Paper Studio design which was colored with Watercolor Crayons, misted and stamped onto watercolor paper.
The sentiment is from SU!'s Like it a Latte. The DP and Cardstock are also from SU! in shades of Certainly Celery and Garden Green. The ribbon is from the Martha Stewart line.
A little metal, some distressing and sponging to finish.
