Hello Blog Friends, today I am sharing a layout I created a little while ago - scrapbooking is something I love to do, but there never seems to be enough time in the day for me - I am sure I am not alone with this!
This family photo was taken at Christmas - it is so hard to get a photo with everyone in it these days - now our family has grown by one - our first grandchild, Noah was born in April and I am going to have to try to get an updated family photo - don't hold your breath! LOL!
The gorgeous background paper is from the Kaisercraft Kaleidoscope collection - I am loving the colours and all that it has got happening on it, without taking over. This collection not only has gorgeous paper but also it's own stickers and embellishments - it makes it all so easy to coordinate! Don't you love those little banners. The buttons are recycled from my Great Grandmother's button tin - I try to use them on projects that are personal and precious to me - this layout is one of them!
I love to use Spellbinders Dies on my layouts, they add such a great touch - this one is the Fleur de Elegance Nestabilities® Decorative Accents - a favourite with me. It has been cut using the Grand Calibur Die Cutting and Embossing Machine and layered to frame opposite corners of the photo and the patterned paper.
I have cut the sentiment into individual words and layered each word onto white cardstock to make it 'pop'...
Some flowers from my stash are added at the top of the photo along with sentiments from the Kaleidoscope Collection down the side. I have used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner and 3D Foam.
