Some double pagers with SEI....

I don't know what it is, but for some reason I love to do double pages with my SEI papers!  Perhaps it is becuase there are so many papers in a pack that I just want to use them all!

Most of the time when I do pages, I try to find papers that have colors that contrast with my photos so that my photos stand out more.  I don't use the colors in the photos that much to find papers to match.  But this page was an exception because everything just matched so perfectly!

A few weeks ago, on one of our many trips to the park, we found some dandelions and some fluffies and I was trying to teach Charlotte how to blow they away.  At first she put them on her lips and she was getting the little seeds stuck to her lips and was trying to spit them out...it was funny.  But then she started to get the hang of it.


The title is from the die cut pack from the Corrinne line, and I used some BG tiny alphas, too.  I typed my journaling and outlined the blocks with a pen.



The butterflies were cut from some paper and I added some of the pearls from the sundries pack.

I had this stamp in my stash and it reminded me of dandelions, so I used it.  For the centers, I used some metal spirals and peals also from the sundries pack that coordinate with the Sunny Days papers.


This next page was a bit hard for me at first because of all the colors in the photos.  I didn't know which colors to focus on, so I went with the grey background to try and make the photos stand out more.

We bought some flower spinners at Hobby Lobby for the front gardens and Charlotte had fun putting them together and sticking them in the ground.

I wanted to add some color to the top left of the layout so I created a banner with some papers from the Athlete, Sunny Days, and Corrinne collections.


There are some adorable felt and die cut flower pieces that come with the Sunny Days line, so I created this flower cluster with my journaling spot, although I journaled on some of the border strips, too.


What is with all the alliteration in my titles lately?  Someone stop me...
