I used my Sept. kit from Memorable Seasons which includes papers from Echo Park Victoria Gardens! As usual, I stuck to the sketch quite closely...
This is a photo of my Dad and Charlotte outside of a church where we go for a pancake breakfast on the first saturday of the month. I love the angle of this photo! I was not the photographer on this one...my mom took this photo...
Instead of fussy cutting these flowers out of the patterned paper, I used the stickers on the sticker sheet...saved me a ton of time! :) I pleated the music not paper and then stitched across the top.
The little bits in the top corner came from the journaling cards sheet of paper. I like to pair a graphic/geometric pattern with the more floral prints.
I did two other pages with my kit from Memorable Seasons.
On this page, I used the text print paper, but I cut it out into squares and distressed each square. Then I arranged the squares into a rectangle and placed my photo on top.
I cut out the doilies from the doily print paper nad layered them and added a button and some twine. The smaller one are stickers from the sticker sheet which I pop-dotted off the page.
I love some of the phrase stickers on the sticker sheet....perfect for my theme!! :)
Lastly, since the paper in this kit are very flowery, I wanted to try and create a page that wasn't. So I decided that less is more and went with a very simple design. I was actually inspired by an ad challenge on the Memorable Seasons MB for this design.
Whoever coined the phrase "sleeps like a baby" abviously never had an infant in their home! :) My little guy was up every few hours and was not taking long sleeps at all! I am happy to report that we are doing much better....he is actually going right back to sleep after his night time feedings now instead of staying awake wide-eyed and looking at all the fun shadows at night! :)
I used some of the new Bazzill "Two Scoops" cardstock which has a different colored core. I sanded the dots on the black CS to make them stand out a bit more, and I tore the top edge of the photo mat to reveal the core, too.
Speaking of Bazzill, I have an exciting exciting new venture brewing! I can't wait to share! :) Here's a hint...it has to do with quilts and fish.....:)
