I got four layouts done and still have a pile of stuff left for some more scrappy goodness. The first layout mixed 4-5 pp's and some of the cool clear embellies with some handmade flowers. You know you're digging all these cool flowers we're seeing popping up everywhere. I made a lollipop flower and a few box flowers with several of the LYB's pp's. Love how these turned out.
Oh yea, I made some banners with some scraps of the diecut paper and 2 rub-ons.
For this next one, I hacked the diecut paper into 3 pieces. I used the 2 outer sections and filled in the center with my photo and another scrap of pp. I edged the sections with strips of pp and border stickers. Used lots of pop dots on my title and the embellies (grouped in 3's around my photo). I love that button up top with all that texture!
Simple, simple. Love the Prima flowers ala blooming tree. My pleated paper draws the eye to this sweet photo of my Sassy with the bunny. I do this on a majority of my pages. It adds so much dimension. I added 2 more pink elements to balance out my dd's top. I love how this burst of color is so surprising with the blue/green color scheme.
The two items of note in this last one are the shamrock element in the lower right corner. I forget when I make up funky details, that I have to photograph them, as well. This shamrock is on popdots yet floats against the open circle cut through the base papers. It so doesn't photograph well. Also, I hate to throw away scraps (yep, I'm a hoarder), so I used the other piece from my curve that I used on layout #1. so the curve here in turn inspired all those gosh darn circles.
