Layout | Fancy Pants Designs


This page came together pretty quick!  I used a sketch from Scrapbook Generation and rotated it.


The title came from the Silhouette online store and fit my photo perfectly!


I used Fancy Pants Designs "The Good Life" Collection.  The banners really helped maximize the paper in the collection.  The inked the edges to make them stand out a bit more.

Layout | Pebbles Inc.



These snapshots were taken out on the back deck but the problem was the lighting!  They were have in heavy shade/ half in bright sunshine!  Oh well, you can't always pick where spontaneous moments are going to happen!

The pink chicken wire patterned paper is from Jillibean Soup. But all other papers are from Pebbles' "Sunnyside" Collection  The title card is from Pebbles' "Noted" Collection  The 3x4 journal card is from My Mind's Eye Collectable "Unforgettable" Collection.  



The chipboard branch is from the Dollar Store and the little birds are cut out of a piece of Echo Park's "Hello Summer" paper.

The whole layout is based on a sketch from Scrapbook Generation.
