Hey Scrappy Friends! I’m back today with another layout. This one I actually completely while on vacation. It’s amazing how little you actually need to scrap when away from your space.
This layout was inspired by the rewind sketch at Rochelle Spears blog and the color/friend challenge at GrandDiva’s Creative Corner. The friend part comes from including a photo of my parents with our kiddos. Hubby and I are blessed for my parents to be considered friends as well as family. It also goes with the new beginnings challenge at Use Your Stuff because our baby girl in this picture isn’t even three months, I hadn’t gone back to work yet, and it was our first time away as a family of four.
This layout was made with goodies from the Felicity Jane Summer kit. The only things I added were some paint splatters from my cheapy watercolor set and some of my homemade enamel dots attached with my scotch tacky glue. I only used the scotch glue rather than my best glue ever because I had forgotten it at home and Michael’s only carried the Scotch.
The cluster in the upper right hand corner is several pieces all stacked together and cemented with my Tim Holtz tiny attacher. There is washi from the kit, a label, a die cut that had a saying on it, and then a stamp that I cut out.
The stamp is also from the kit. I’m really loving the sets included each month. I’ve never been a stamper on my layouts, but I find having them that I do use them and actually reach for them over and over.
Well, we’re off to the beach for a bit as it’s supposed to rain later. Right around nap time…wouldn’t that be perfect! Until next time…stay crafty!
Love this layout and the colour combinations. Thanks for playing along at Use Your Stuff – Gail
