Yes, the blog has been quiet again. Sorry! I work for a lawn care company in the Spring (AND I work for a craft store chain on the weekends) so any free time I get I like to spend crafting! Happily, for Mother's Day I got to spend a few peaceful hours in my craft room so here's one of the layout's I completed!
While I was picking papers for this layout I was thinking of my friend Natalie. She has a blog called Scrappy Natty. We've gotten to be on-line friends through the Scrapbook Chicks Tuesday Night chats. She always says she shutters when she hears that we are using multiple patterned papers and as you know I'm a patterned paper LOVER! Yep, I used 4 different patterned papers, all from Echo Park Paper! The main papers are from the Playground line and the two smaller strips are from Little Boy. I love that the colors in these lines can be mixed and matched so easily!!! The title is from the sheet of stickers that comes in the Playground Collection pack. I used the letter stickers from the pack to spell out the word "adventure". Then I went to my massive stash of embellies and dug through my Chick'N Feathers and my Chick'N Feed boxes and other goodies to find the perfect flowers and buttons to accent my layout! I think it turned out great!!!
Oh and I have some winners to announce!!!! The Royal Tea Party Blog Hop winner is:
