Back to My Roots

Today I actually did some scrapbook layouts! I haven't done any in a while, so I will admit that I was a bit nervous that I might not have any ideas or would just sit there staring at my photos completely frozen. Well, I pulled out some pictures of my youngest from last year when we were outside blowing bubbles and things just happened. I used the Bo Bunny line Forever Young which has such beautiful bright colors and it all came together easily. Here is the double layout:
I matted each picture with some black cardstock so that they stood out and then used 2 of the papers from the Forever Young collection. I then added some Thickers for the title and year. Last, I added some pearl dots to carry out the bubble theme. Did I mention that I used a Memento black ink pad to edge the papers with all the circles? I like to edge patterned papers so that they have a defined edge. Did you see that I even used the name of the papers under one of the pictures? Talk about using every part of the paper! This layout just makes me smile :)

I then decided to use the backside of one of the pages to do one last layout of my little one:
This again, used only papers from the Forever Young collection from Bo Bunny. Since I had the full kit, the letters are also from the same line. I liked the idea of using the colored chevron on top of the black version. This page has a lot of movement, so I wanted to keep it simple. Love how it turned out!

This week I had a colleague at work ask me to make something for a christening she was attending today and this is what I made:
I didn't want to use traditional "baby" colors. I took a bit of a risk with my color palette and my colleague loved it. Phew!

It has been quite a crafty week :)
