The first two LO's I lifted from Paper Trails. Deb had done a layout and I just loved it, so I stole some of her ideas to do this wedding layout of our middle son and his wife who are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary on June 22. The next two are of our 2nd oldest great grandaughter, taken at her cousins 5th birthday party. Grandma had bought all 4 of her little grandaughters beautiful dresses and they had a blast at a photo shoot that grandma had set up in their basement. I love how she goes from a sad looking little girl, to a smirk and then to a beautiful smile. I am loving the look of the layered photos as well. Again a lot of the ideas I use come from the site Such a Pretty Mess by Gabrielle Pollacco. She does the most beautiful work of anything I have seen since I started scrapbooking nearly 16 years ago. The flowers on the little girl layout are punched from 3 punches I have on two of the background papers and then inked and dampened with water. Then I scrunch them all up, straighten them out a little and then let them dry. They stay in the shape you arrange them if you put the brads in very gently and try not to disturb how they have dried. I have also figured out how to cut the mats I used here on the cricut. You have to have A Childs Year cartridge. I think they add a lot to the lo. The butterflies are stamped with a stamp from Micheals on the same paper as I used for the largest mat (patterned background paper) and then stickled with stardust stickles. The butterfly on the wedding LO is from Dollarama, as are the mirrored butterflies and the dragonfly is from Paper Trails.
