We are back again today with another member lift!!! YAY!!! I saw this layout using the Charm School kit by Theresa Gillman on her blog (sorry I couldn't get the pic larger!!!). I loved the square photo, sewn strips of patterned paper, and those adorable banners!!!
For my lift I sifted through the fun patterned papers & embellishments in the West Coast kit to scrap this pic of my youngest son and I.
Banners have been a huge trend for awhile now but I actually haven't played with them too much - not sure why because I had such a blast creating one out of the kraft butterflies in the kit. These were actually meant to attach to stick pins but when I happened to lay them out side by side, I saw banner!!! I tied the ends of the twine into bows and glued it down across the butterflies. Then I glued down some of those fabulous My Minds Eye brads in the center of each butterfly.
I liked the circle element above the patterned paper square that Theresa had on her page. I decided to tuck that adorable pink doily from the kit in and layer it with one of the Echo Park stickers. As I mentioned above, Theresa stitched across her strips of patterned paper. Being such a fan of stitching on my layouts, I couldn't help but add in that detail as well :)
I had alot to journal on this page so I created a pocket under the photo where I tucked in a handmade journaling tag. Here's the front . . .
And here's the back . . .
Thanks so much for inspiring me Theresa!!!!
