Well I’m back from the most wonderful place in the world, and have LOTS of photos to scrap! Disney was amazing, and we are so proud of our kids who were so well behaved that it made the trip very enjoyable for everyone. I have a whole slew of layouts in my head, but it will take awhile to make them all happen. I’ve already Project Life’d my entire trip (yes, I use it as a verb!), so now that the details are captured I can relax a bit and scrap my very favourite photos and memories at my own pace. This is what I really love about Project Life… it’s simple and quick and frees me up to scrap the fun stuff.
Well it is a new month, so that means there are new challenges over at Scrapbook Supplies Online. Be sure to check out the layout and the card challenges- you can win a voucher to spend in the store! Yesterday I got a bit of time to play with this sketch, which was perfect for the Tigger and Pooh layout I had in mind:

Here’s what I came up with:
I love those fleece flower shapes and instead of placing a flower centre in the middle, I just stapled them for something a little unexpected. I also stapled the ribbon flower stem on the other side of the layout. The journalling card is from one of my Smash Pads.
I had a lot of fun making the title for this layout! I found the frame (by Glitz Designs) in my stash and wanted book paper to go behind it, so I decided to look online for images of Winnie the Pooh text, knowing that many of the books have cute images in the text. A quick google search and I had a great image printed. I distressed it to look like actual book paper and layered my title letters over it. The ampersand started as a naked chipboard elements (by Pebbles). I painted it green, then embossed the turquoise dots. Some Martha Stweart labels (I’m in love with the Avery-MS line of labels- don’t slip in the drool on the floor at Staples when you go to get some) with the date finished off the layout.
