Scrapbooking, Little Ballerina

Ah, I can't believe it is Monday again.  It was an exciting Sunday.  First, my little guy got his second tooth (and I actually got a photo of it!).  I'm going to miss that toothless grin, but not the major lack of sleep.  This momma needs more than four hours a night.  Second, I watched the super bowl for the first time ever.  I normally could care less about it, but we were invited to a party and all of my daughter's boyfriends were there.  Also, I live in the Seattle area so it is kind of impossible to avoid all the craziness.  Anyways, it is another make it Monday over at the Memory Nest.  This week you have to make a layout using this loving layout sketch made by the Scrappy Penguin.  I'm always a fan of getting lots of photos onto a layout.

Now, I ventured a bit away from this layout. That mostly happened because I didn't have a lot of little photos to really work with.  I did think about recreating the strips with some watercolor, but my watercolors disappeared.  I think my little ballerina hid them somewhere.  She has been running off with a lot of my stuff lately.  She has become particularly fascinated with my flair.  Any who, I did try to keep with the strip feel in keeping my photos relatively straight and lined up vertically.  What I loved about this layout was the pocket spilling hearts all over the page and I knew I had to include that onto my page.  I found this cute jar from Cratepaper's Lovenotes that I just had to use.  I backed it with some vellum because it was clashing way to much with this black heart background paper (somehow I ended up with four sheets of this stuff and I have  no idea how that happened!) and put some confetti hearts behind it and then put some more spilling onto the page.
