I shared this layout over on the Noel Mignon blog yesterday. When I'm working on layouts I'll usually print out several photos of different events & then figure out what I'm going to work on or I'll go through pictures I've already had printed.
I had this picture of Addie that I wanted to put in a layout and when I was thinking about what I wanted to do I had all of the scraps still sitting out on my table from my layout last week. And when I took a look at all of those scraps I knew I could create a cute layout by simply layering them on my page.
All I did was create a frame with that burlap paper (hello burlap!!) and then layer some of the scraps around and underneath my photo.
A quick little background on the photo - my 3 yr old is very much into the "I can do it myself" phase. So in this photo she had put the headband in her hair & came to me all excited saying "mommy, I so booihfoe!!!" (beautiful) Ah yes, kool-aid mouth and all :)
I added some of that gold striped washi & brads along with some yellow thickers from another NM kit (I love the gold thickers from the Sweet & Simple kit but they just didn't show against the burlap paper). I have a tendency to switch around the thickers from different kits :)
By using up some of the scraps I had laying around I was able to create this layout pretty quickly!
