Bundled Baby

I am back today to upload a layout before I head off to work for the evening! So my hopes and wishes ended up caving in. I have decided that I am better off just scrapbooking for myself. I think that I get my hopes up way too high to think I can design for someone. Plus, I have heard of so many designers becoming burnt out and I don't want that to happen to me. I love to scrapbook and I am good enough for me!

So back to my layout! This layout is inspired by a layout done by Paige Evans, another scrapbooker whom I admire. I just love what she does with patterned paper.

I used the Studio Calico Magical collection again and just went ahead cutting strips of the patterned paper and then adhering the to my layout. I put some paper layers behind the photo, did some outlining, and added only a few embellishments to this layout. It really didn't need anything more! 

I embossed those old snowflake wood veneers that I found in my stash with white opaque embossing powder, cut "baby" from my Cameo from a phrase that said "baby love," added some journaling, and black mist drops! 

I love this font of thickers and if you look closely.... well, that really isn't the "e" that comes with the pack! It is actually a "c!" I love making things work! Thanks for checking out my layout and for the great comments you have all been leaving lately. I love it and it really means a lot to me, especially on the last post which was a tough one! I am so thankful to have such wonderful scrappy friends! :)

Beautiful as always!! I love Paige's style too! She always gets me in the mood to use lots of patterns and that's so fun to do! And I love your page! The pattern starburst looks uber cool and those Thickers-- LOVE! Oh, and I love how you wrote the journaling straight on to the page. I have trouble making myself do that. LOL :)
