Layout love

I love love love these pictures. The one on the far right (last one) page was blown up and framed for part of my Mother's day gift this year. J set up an impromptu photo shoot while I was off volunteering one day. The many faces/personalities of C sure did come out in this shoot. You can see where she was play laughing, really laughing, was pouting because she was "done taking pictures" and the finished product. I absolutely love these pictures. I only had one piece of pattern paper for this two page spread so what is a girl to do? STRETCH IT! I decided I wanted polka dots to mimic the ones on C's dress. I punched 1.75, 1.5 and 1 inch circles with my punches, cut out the journal spot. I knew I would not have enough to cover the whole page so I left room for an embellishment cluster (or my version at least), and then figured out where I wanted the pictures, laid them out, lightly traced and did not fill that space in. For added interest I faux stitched around some, added bling, butterfly bubble things, clear heart buttons from Ephiphany crafts tied with twine, Maya Road chipboard butterflies, inked with sharpies and white pen. I also added some primas, inked to blue from pink to match, and some bling swirls. I love how this one came out and will probably frame them to go on the wall since I love the pictures so much!
