i have another layout to share, using one of bella blvd's two new mid-release collections. this layout also uses the new spring flings and easter things collection. but this time, it's more of a spring/everyday layout.
as i was looking for the egg coloring photos on my external hard drive, i came across these photos of one of my closest friend's, deneen, and her girls. i had taken these photos of them, over four years ago, and thought it would be fun to scrap them. they went perfectly with this collection. i printed the photos of the four girls as 2x3's, and i believe the photo of all of them is 5x8 inches.
i've had quite a few comments lately, on how straight my machine stitching is. honestly, it's really only straight when i do a zig zag stitch. and that's usually because i'm going along the edge of one of the papers. i just line up the center of the "foot" (is that what it's called?), to go along the edge of my paper, so that the stitching goes on either side.
if i'm doing a straight stitch, it will NOT be straight. so i purposely make it crooked as i go, and i make sure and go around three times. just like i did on these half circles. i did a little misting again, just to add a little color to the white cardstock. i did pull one pattern paper from an older bella collection, and that's the purple grid paper from the socialite collection. the flower paper along the side of the page, has a touch of purple in it, and i wanted to pick up on that.
the scalloped border sticker is from the socialite collection too. the buttons are all from fancy pants. love their buttons!
it just so happens, that i have a ton of projects going on right now. for a wide variety of things. it's a funny mix to see on my desk. i have spring, winter, halloween, and even graduation. it's no wonder that i've given no thought yet to halloween, which is coming up super quick. oddly enough, the girls havn't even mentioned halloween or costumes. i'm sure it will come up at the last minute. that's kind of how we do things around here ;)
