A Layout inspired by ...

Good Morning Scrappy Friends!!  Today I want to share a layout I scrap-lifted from someone who's work I have been admiring for a very long time.  I recently found this layout on her blog and love her clever design and use of the collections die cut's and noteworthy pieces.  I love the Juliet Collection from Bo Bunny, but found it hard to work with what I wanted to do with it.  Then I saw how  Nicole used the extra pieces on this layout I wanted to re-create her design.

Here is a look at my layout and I will also share Nicole's page with you!

This photo of my husband and baby Kate simply melts my heart.  Looking at my husband in this photo is makes me love him more for the love and tenderness he shows for our grandees!  He definitely is a keeper ... :-)!!

Like I said before, the paper and embellishments are from the Juliet Collection by Bo Bunny.  What caught my eye was the clever use of the noteworthy and die cut pieces from this collection.  I would never in a thousand years have though to use it this way!  I changed the back ground paper and changed some of the element pieces, but stuck pretty much to Nicole's design.

And here is a look at Nicoles original design ...

Gorgeous page, Nicole ... and thank you for the inspiration!!

Thanks for stopping by friends ... see you soon!!

Happiness is Handmade - Layout share

Me again ... :-).  I can't believe it's my 3rd blog post for this week ... Must be a new record for me!!

I wanted to share with you a layout I have been working on for TWO DAYS!! But I have to say I had so much fun creating this page.  Lately I am very into creating pages with interactive elements, and this one is no different!  On this one I have a mini album as well as tags with pockets.  

I have a confession to make ... I am in love with the new Bo Bunny Soiree Collection ... It is
 G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!!!  I love the softness and vintage feel of the paper and embellishment.  I created this page for my daughter.  This is from a photo shoot I did with her  little family a few days after her daughter was born.  Such a  precious memory for me.  Here is a closer look at all the yummy details.  First up a look at the little mini album.

The mini album was cut from a Lori Whitlock Sihouette file and cut with my Cameo.

And some more details ...

I would love the hear your thoughts on this one?!?
