This was such a fun layout to do! I like when I get in the mood to scrap like this. It's fun to put these kinds of pages together. It took me two days though. LOL!
The papers are Graphic 45, Playtimes line. The round letters are also G45 but I think they went with another line. I knew I had to have the train paper, my son just loves trains. There's Prima bling, and I rarely put the bling down the way it comes... I tend to cut swirls apart and use them the way I want. :) Also some Making Memories mini-alphas. Some K&CO ephemera. I believe the 5 petaled flowers came from the cricut cart Lyrical Letters. The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch, and Kevin punched them out for me. I used the Tim Holtz tiny attacher stapler to staple the ribbon, I ruffled it myself and stapled every other ruffle. See the detail shot of the ribbon circle half done below. I cut the circle with my cricut and then stapled the ribbon on before putting the circle on the layout, so that I wouldn't have to worry about being able to reach with the stapler.
The layout was inspired by the sketch at Stuck On You Sketches blog, which is one of my favorite blogs to visit every friday, even if I don't get a chance to do the challenge. Those ladies over there are phenomenal designers. Love their stuff!
The heart on this layout was inspired by the flower technique on Happay Scrappay's blog, using twisted ribbon. Check it out! I like how the heart turned out.
I also created this layout for some challenges over at Scrapbook Dreamer. Come visit there! Some awesome stuff coming up in February too, fun cropping and contests. :)
Thanks for looking!
