Warmin' Up with Momenta

I have a layout to share today that was on the Momenta blog yesterday. Momenta carries these great 5x7 patterned papers pads and they are perfect for cards and also for layouts. This layout, with the exception of the background cardstock, was created using just that 5x7 paper pad.


I cut lots and lots of paper strips using different patterns. I then border punched some, added flags to the ends of some and layered them all behind my photo. I also created some stick pin flags with random stick pins I had in my stash.


I used the Black and White DieCut pad for the title frame and black puffy stickers for the title. I like how they matched up so well! I also threw twine all over the layout because twine is my BEST FRIEND FOREVER!!!


This might be the last softball layout I make. Kayla wasn't all that thrilled with playing last season and opted not to play this spring. Which is fine by me, she's interested in other things. Thankfully they are other things where I can still take photos. This mom has her priorities. Hee hee!!

Thanks for stopping by today, friends!!

What a sweet layout. I love all the bright colors. I'm sure that your daughter will replace softball with something else equally photo-worthy.
