Creative Scrappers Sketch #139

Hi Everyone! Today I have a layout I did using a Creative Scrappers sketch AND some Echo Park paper. I *finally* got my hands on some Echo Park paper, this is the line called Life Is Good. They are one of the newest paper companies out there and they have some awesome stuff coming out for CHA this year! I cannot wait to get my hands on it (yes, I already have some on pre-order!). In the meantime...the sketch...


And the layout!


I just love this photo of my daughter. It was taken last summer in our backyard. She looks so grown up and then I see the Chuck E. Cheese tattoo on her arm and I remember that she is still such a little girl!! This is a layout documenting all her favorites at 6 years old.

I used some crackle medium on this plain chipboard butterfly...


And another big flower! I love these!!


I realized that I don't use yellow that often and I enjoyed pulling the yellow accents from the paper and using it for some of the bigger embellishments. It just reminds me of spring!

That's all I have today...hope you have a great Wednesday!

Such a sweet photo and pretty layout. Love the big flower. And had to laugh about the Chuck E Cheese tattoo. Tattoo's are still pretty popular in our house too :)

That's such a great idea to document her favorites at 6:) It will be fun to see all the changes as the years go by. Sweet.

Can you PLEASE just come to my house and create a few SB LOs using MY photos? PLEASE?!
Your LOs are so inspiring Mara and they seem timeless too. In 10 years your pages won't look dated because you are so good at combining elements and keeping things fresh. I'm in awe.
