I just wanted to share this layout I made for my littlest guy. Just like on his brother's page, this layout also has three gnomes on it. I really love those little gnomes. They are so stinkin cute! I did some hand stitching on this layout for the title. I love the look of hand stitching and really want to add it to more of my layouts in the future. So far I have started the year strong and made two layouts so far! I home I can keep up the pace. I really enjoy scrapbooking so much.
I love yellow pages. They always make me so happy. I made this for SWAT drill 16. The layout sketch was a fun one to work with. I stitched the pink cloud and then made another one out of some vellum. At first the cloud was going to be yellow, but I wanted to make it stand out more so pink it was! I also used some weird texture board that I had laying around and I misted it up with yellow, orange, and pink. Normally, I make my pages about the event in the picture. This photo was originally going to tell about my daughter playing in the sprinkler, but it turned out to be more about her expression. So my journaling was more like a little prayer for my daughter then the normal story telling. The twist for the drill was some twine. I used it for the button and I also wanted to use it to stitch the cloud, but I only had yellow and blue twine and that wasn't working well.
