Pearl – Layout 7

Back to school. Those three words bring such peace and joy to my heart! And you know what else does? Back to school supplies. The glorious array of organization tools, labels, notebooks, pens, pencils, and post it notes make me so happy. Today’s steal, the 9 to 5 collection by Jenni Bowlin, echoes my love of office supplies. All of Jenni’s little embellies bring the perfect “organization” to any page.

It was so much fun to see a sketch from Design Team member Katrina last month that I asked Regina if she would provide us with one. It’s a treat for me to be given some inspiration and then make it blossom in my own creative way just like you ladies do each week.

I was delighted when ScrabookSteals fan Jennifer Collins sent me photos of her sweet little lady in case I needed something fresh to work with. How could I resist scrapping photos of this little angel?

It was hard to settle on which of the six photos she sent me to use but when I saw the “he said,” “she said” note cards in today’s collection I knew I wanted to use them as a big part of the layout. I thought of how fun it will be for both mom and dad to record their feelings of the new little princess in their family.

Keeping in theme with Regina’s sketch, I used the row of tickets across the bottom of the layout as one of the borders, then used some washi in combination with the chipboard buttons and some flowers as the other border area. I also used a little Mr. Huey’s mist to alter the chipboard letters which I included on the layout.

Now for a treat in seeing already how Regina Mangum interpreted her own sketch. I LOVE THIS!

Thank you so much Jen for allowing me to scrap a photo of sweet little Julia! I have five more sitting on my desk so you never know when she may make another appearance. ;)

Speaking of appearances, your layouts this week have been absolutely fantastic! Keep it up girls! This week Julie Koets is our lucky random winner. I’m blown away by Julie’s interpretation of the Pearl 6 sketch.
