Happy Monday! Here is my layout for the Memory Nest. I must say, that I thought I would get a lot more scrapbooking done this summer, but it seems to be difficult to find the time. I guess the nice weather has been calling me outside too much. My daughter recently bridged from being a Daisy to a Brownie in Girl Scouts. It was really cute, but the lighting was horrible. I tried to make the best of the poor photo quality. I spent a ton of time on the background of this layout, and you can't see most of it. I first used my markers to make this circle of dots. Then I painted more bigger circles. Finally I used this glaze stuff to make four different textured regions. You can see the triangles in the upper right best. I was going to watercolor so the textures pop out more, but decided that it might make the page too busy. I already have a lot going on and it is a bit tricky to read the title.

Here is my Memory Nest layout for this week. My layout is a cute one of my little guy. I love the outfits with little ears. They are my weakness. I recently got a button maker for my daughter's birthday and I made that little panda button using it. It took a couple of attempts, but I'm starting to get the hang of it. I see lots and lots of buttons in my future. Buttons are one of my favorite embellishments for scrapbooking.
