My favorite thing about the Memory Lane kit is the way it makes me feel! I know. That sounds totally goofy . . . but honestly I love the way I feel all artsy and sophisticated while playing with it. ;) I mean! Just look at those colors and all the trinkets and treasures! I feel like I've spent the day perusing cool little boutiques and antique stores full of soulful discoveries. For this layout I stamped the dress form diecut with a polka dot background stamp by PaperTrey Ink. (LOVE this stamp set! Thanks to my friend, Allison Cope for enabling me through her blog! ;) LOVE IT!!!) I really like the way it adds a bit of "fashion-forwardness" to this layout . . . especially because I am the furthest thing from being fashion-forward! LOL! You don't need lots of pink and red to make a Valentine's day layout! A few little framed hearts does the trick on this page! I cut the hearts from the photocorners in the Making Memories Felt Alpha set included in the kit.
It's very rare that I do a page about myself, so this one was a bit of a struggle for me. Why is that? I mean, don't we need to include ourselves in our books, too! ;)
I honestly think that my family sometimes feels like I am their Papparazzi . . . I just won't leave them alone!!! Well, too bad! It's what I love to do. Hehehe!
We had a blast attending the parade and fireworks with my family yesterday. Today we're heading out to the carnival in the park . . . so I should have some pictures for you within the next few days! Enjoy your Thursday . . . we're almost to the weekend! YAY!
