Topaz Club — Layout 8

When I first saw today’s steal, the Lovely Collection by Lily Bee, I immediately picked up my phone and plead with Lisa to schedule the steal for a Wednesday so that I could work with it. I had all sorts of visions of lovely little girl layouts running through my head. Imagine my surprise when I sat down to create and all I could think about was scrapping photos of my lil’ hunny —a boy! I knew the exact photos I wanted to use and was thrilled that the Lovely collection could compliment them so beautifully.

I am so smitten with the lovely prints and patterns. And the fact that such a girlish kit could work so fantastic with a boy page and not even make you think twice that it wasn’t meant to be for a boy page is just icing on the cake!

I love the big die cut tags that come with the collection and figured that it would work great for my journaling block. I even had to give the recent twine technique that Brenda Smith showed us last Friday on the blog a spin. I love how it all came together!

The rubons that come with today’s still, simply put, make me happy! In fact it was the rubons that inspired my entire layout.

It’s been such a great week seeing all of the interpretations of Charissa’s amazing Topaz 7 sketches. This week our lucky random winner is Brettany Quinton! It’s been so much fun to see Brettany jump into scrapbooking when she never imagined that she would be a layout maker. It’s fantastic to me to see how amazing her pages are after only scrapping for a few short months!

Brettany, if you can please send us an email to service@scrapbooksteals.com we will be happy to send a prize out to you.
