Scrapbook, Tulip Thoughts

OllieTulipThoughts1

Oh I've got a fun layout here!  I really wanted to try Scrap Our Stash's word challenge.  I had a great idea in my head that started as a single layout that changed two a double layout that ended up being a page and a half layout!  I used one of Bella Blvd's new Invisibles.  I really liked how it is fairly thick.  Much more sturdy than a transparency.  It really is going to add a cool layer to my little dude's scrapbook. So here is what I used for the challenge:
 
S-Stickers
T-Twine and Thickers
E-Enamel Dots
N-Numbers
C-Cork and Color
I-"Invisable"
L-Labels
 
When I started this layout is had eight photos on a 12x12, but it didn't leave me enough room for a title and journaling so I added another page.

The two pages gave me too much space so I thought I'll just make it a half a page and only add a few extra photos.  Now I don't have any half page page protectors around.  I ended up cutting up one of my 12x12 in half and sewing the side up.  Then I sewed the half onto the another 12x12 so I could get a seamless look when they are open and not have a gap.  It worked surprisingly well.  Now I know there are some seamless double page layout page protectors out there, but I'm not aware of any one and a half ones.

The numbers on my layout guide you to the number journaling.

It was a good way to use up all those numbers I have!
