I'm so excited to have made it past the 500 follower mark! Even better, to celebrate I have an AWESOME giveaway.... The ContainYa Crafts company is GENEROUSLY allowing me to GIVE one lucky winner their very one Scrap'N Tote!!!! Now, if you haven't checked these out yet there is a blinkie on my sidebar... right up at the top! Give it a click and check out this awesome system... right after you read my post of course, LOL! Before I get to the nitty gritty details (requirements are NOT hard, I promise) check out these two layouts that I created yesterday!
For this first layout I used my absolute FAVORITE paper company's papers... Echo Park Paper! The top and bottom strips are both from the Springtime line. I used a sheet from the Little Girl line to create my scallops. The light pink cardstock in the background is from my stash. I love the fact that I can mix Echo Parks' lines so easily. Makes me feel like I know what I'm doing, LOL! I just found out that Echo Park is giving away paper on their blog for the next 10 days! Make sure you go HERE to follow their blog too!!! These are some of my favorite photos from Evie Lynn's first days on earth. Her big sister Penny was so enamored with being a big sister and having a New Baby in the house. I think Evie was over a year old before Penny stopped referring to her as My New Baby Sister! I actually used my Gyspy and my Cricut to make this title too. I used my Lyrical Letters font with the Connected feature to make the word Sisterly. Then I used the word art for Love from the Sweethearts cartridge. I think I'm starting to like my Gypsy a little bit!
And let me just quickly draw your attention to the flowers and heart accent that I used on my page. You can order fabulous containers full of Chick'N Stuff from Two Chicks Designs to add that little something extra to your pages! I actually got one of the Chick'N Feed 7 Color Gift Packs and was so shocked by how many buttons and goodies come in the container! It's really awesome!!! You can also find these at the Scrapbook Chicks website (same fabulous owners) when you are picking up your Echo Park Paper too!
The other layout I created with some really yummy Fancy Pants Road Show papers. How gorgeous are these? She's probably gonna kick me but these photos are of my best friend Christy's baby shower. We have been friends since 7th Grade thanks to Girl Scouts! I was sooooo happy when she and I were able to get pregnant at the same time! Our babies are only 3 months apart in age! Anyway, I added some fabulous ribbon and cut the title from my New Arrival Cricut cartridge. I also used my Hero Art's Cute Letters stamps to stamp out "Christy's". My journaling card is part of a set I picked up from Tattered Angels. I found 2 of these sets at the fabulous Lorraine's Memories Scrapbook Store in Woodstock, IL. Both sets have 3 Bingo cards, 3 Journaling Cards and 3 little title pieces and are made for Glimmer Mist. So I misted my card with Bazzil Pink and Starfish and then pained both of my dragon flies wings with some turquoise Glimmer Glam. I LOVE how it turned out... and wish I had bought more than 2 sets of these fun cards!!!
