Here is a solution. One photo layouts are harder to get published (& I would really like to continue being published) but a lot of times I find a moment like this that just speaks to me. This single photo seemed to be the perfect fit for my concept. Here is "10 Things I Love About You..."
I recently purchased a paper collection from Crate Paper and was delighted to find this woodgrain patterned paper amongst it's contents. Why not put it to use immediately? I was equally excited to use the new everywhere scalloped circle punch by Fiskars. It was instrumental in pulling this all together. The scalloped peep holes this tool creates in a jiffy are simply darling and the perfect set up for journaling. Sewing on this layout was easy too. I did a lot of back and forth stitching and just let it zoom, zoom, zoom. It didn't really matter how straight or overlapped it got...aren't the results cool?
I think a top 10 layout is in order for each individual in our family. Guess I'll take this opportunity to use some more of that beautiful Crate Paper....what's not to love? =)
