I have a layout to share with all of you using some of the beautiful products from SpiegelMom Scraps Store. The links for all the products I used will be at the end.

I started with a 12x12 piece of American Crafts White cardstock and used some Shimmerz Coloringz in Pretty in Pink along with the packaging technique to create my background. After that was dry, I adhered my photo and layerd some of the doilies along the edge. I added some Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Lemon Drop through a stencil to bring in some more color and a bit of dimension. I sprinkled some of the beautiful sequins around the background to add a shimmer and more color.
At the bottom of my layout, I wanted to try something different and replicate my daughters tutu in the photo. I used a piece of the ribbon I used to make her tutu and ran a bit of atg adhesive along the bottom portion of the page. I weaved a length of sewing thread through the ribbon to make pleating it a little easier. I pulled the thread as I pressed the pleats into the adhesive. I added a little more shimmer with some more sequins in the layers when i was done creating the tutu effect.
 I added my title in the corner above above the soft ruffles, next to the photo. It was a play on words that I though would be perfect for this picture!!!
And Now, the completed layout!!!

"Happy" layout!

Hello everyone, I have a Process post and video( today! I drew a lot of inspiration form a great scrapper I found on Instagram, Kraftykat9. Please check her out and tell her I sent ya! (

 I started my using my scan n cut to make 3 rows of butterflies and cutting them out. I kept the inside butterflies to use later. I misted the cut background with Ocean, Sweet Mint and Gold Heidi Swapp ColorShine and Alpine Ice Rose from Lindy's stamp gang. I repeated the process on the butterflies also. I then backed each butterfly cutout with scraps of paper. I backed the scraps with a strip of paper to keep them in place.
  I chose to mount my photo on white, pink and black to help it stand out from the background, added my title (Happy) and placed the matching butterflies around the page, using some foam dots to pop up the wings. Added my journaling and was done.
 It was a quick layout but I really feel like it looks like it took much longer! Thanks for stopping by today!!
