It's a Fair Day.....

that's one of the recent releases from SEI!  I love this fun collection! It is perfect for fairs and parks and has some great embellies to go along with it.

 My favorite is a perforated sheet of different tickets, some of which I used on this page about the park:

I painted the background with some white paint, and then drew a square with a thin back pen to ground my photos. 

Some of the other die cuts are from the Sunny Days and Corrinne collections.    I also outlined the titles on the phrases to make them stand out more.

Of course I wanted to challenge myself to use these papers for a NON fair or park layout, and the colors went just perfectly with some photos I had of Charlotte for her 2nd birthday.

It's hard to tell in this photo, but the background paper is actually a like pink gingham print...LOVE it!  I did a bunch of hand stitching and machine stitching as well.

This scallopped patterned paper I cut to create different "tiers" and layered them across the page.  I outlined the edges with a black pen.

These balloon die cuts actually had "tails" on the, but I cut them off and tied some white twine around them to make real strings!  :)

These last two pages I want to share were actually posted in June on the SEI blog, but I totally forgot to post them here!  So here they are, without much description!

This page uses a whole bunch of different lines....I really like the design of this layout with the photos going off the edge.

And here is a quick one I whipped up using "I'm an Athlete".  Since we don't really have any athletes in our family yet, I did a page about my hubby and his dad and brother and their trip to watch the Final Four tournament this year in Houston.

I have been doing a LOT of scrapping the past week, but nothing I can share, yet!  Tons of stuff for DT and GDT spots that I can't wait to share!

Beautiful pages. I have wanted to get into scrapbooking, but my crochet has been keeping me so busy! I live in Montgomery, not so terribly far from Spring. I would love to have you stop by my blog too.
I followed via GFC!
