This LO was lots of fun to make! Well, who am I kidding? Most are! That is why I do what I do. Anyways, lately I've realized how exciting it is to go back into your stash of older stuff or scraps and use them up! I love to buy new collections and use them, but if I don't go back and use the older stuff too.. yikes! I will be in trouble! It is so much fun to mix the old with the new and I get such a feeling of accomplishment when I use up old stuff... or use up stuff in general! Does anyone else feel that way?!
Oh... a fun tidbit about this LO... I added this on FB and the mom of this little girl told me how much she loved it and that my kids are going to be sooo lucky because everything is going to be documented. Made me feel great! Just *one* of the reasons why I scrapbook. :)
These photos are so cute of Ryan's cousin's daughter's first birthday (catch that?). I wanted to use a lot of the pink and black that was a part of her birthday cake so I just went into my stash of scraps of patterned papers and I found all of these! It includes Glitz, October Afternoon, Amy Tan Sketchbook, Dear Lizzy Neopolitan, and Crate On Trend! Who knew those would all work together!? :)
Like usual.. I did lots of layering of both patterned paper and stickers.
For the title I used all sorts of different letter stickers. Thanks for checking out my layout and I really appreciate all the comments! Check back tomorrow for the first reveal from the new Scrap Your Story Challenge Blog!
