Layouts to share...

For this layout I used paper from American Traditional Designs Welcome Baby Girl Scrapbook Bundle. I found it at Big Lots a few years ago for only 4 bucks! All the paper pictured here is from that stack...except for the green strip and double heart-those came from the DCWV Spring stack.
The design of the layout was inspired by a Liz Qualman sketch I really like her sketches...definitely worth checking out!

After cutting out all my pieces I inked the edges with Gingerbread chalk ink. For the swirls I embossed them with a tiny hearts Cuttlebug folder...which is a new addition to my scrap supply collection--a great $2 find at Big Lots!
I'm not sure where I found this little poem from...maybe a greeting card??? Whenever I see a quote or poem I cut it out or copy it and keep it as a page idea. I have a few composition books that I put everything into. It's the only way I can keep all those ideas and souces of inspiration straight! lol

This was actually an accident. Instead of EMbossing the word 'my heart', I DEbossed it! lol I kinda think this looks better anyway :) The butterfly and butterfly paper strip are punch outs from the paper stack. I made them more my own by inking the edges. The title comes from the Gypsy Wanderings Cricut cartridge.

This layout was all my own...well, except for the poem...that came from a book or something...I just can't remember! lol The words My and Boy were cut from Graphically Speaking and embossed using the Distressed Stipes and the Circles and Dots Cuttlebug embossing folders. The boots are from Stand And Salute.

This poem just touches my heart...

Well, there's what I've been up to the last couple of days! The rest of the week is going to be pretty eventful so I don't think I'll have much time to be scrapping. Eh...who am I kidding? I'll try to manage to squeeze in a little something here or there! LOL
Have a great week and be sure to check out this Thursday, May 27th. It'll by my very first guest designer blog post EVER! I'm really happy with the way my project came out and I hope you will be, too.
