This is a layout of my cousin that I made while in Tennessee last weekend. I used mostly elements from a Scrapping From The Inside Out kit that I won recently. I pulled out the large floral paper, which is by Basic Grey, and though I wasn't sure I really wanted to use it for this photo, when I read the title of the paper, I just knew I had to. It was called "Tire Swing."

This is a rather pale type of layout for me, but the photo itself is vibrant, I think the pastels allow it to take center stage without a lot of competition. The borders on the bottom are the bar code strips from the Crate Paper base, (light blue), and from a sheet of Sassafras Lass, (cream scallops), used in another project. I also used my Epiphany Crafts epoxy maker to make some flower centers from the reverse side of the scraps of "Tire Swing." This title is Thickers.

I cut a partial frame from the top of "Tire Swing," then picked individual blooms to pop-dot over flowers in the frame to make it 3-D and left a large petal going off the page. Unlike many of my other layouts, this one should still fit in the page protector, though it will hang out the top.


  1. I love the vibrancy of the title letters against the muted colors of the patterned paper. :-)

  2. I can't comment other than the layout is great. That kid in the middle ... I'm holding my tongue. I just got done babysitting her. lol.

  3. Very pretty, and how fitting the name of the paper you used! Love how you incorporated the bar code strips!
    Great stuff!

  4. I love the happy feel to the lo. And that large flower hanging off the top is wonderful. That's something I never do - allow things to go beyond the paper. Great idea!

  5. Very cute page! Love how the title stands out!
