my girl

Hi there, it's Mary-Ann!  It is my turn to share a project with you today.  This layout is against the norm here on Eclectic Paperie.  I walked away with clean hands!  Well, I did have a little Zip Dry and Distress Ink on me!  This girl below makes me happy.  She is my only avenue to using girly colors in this house of boys.  I started with white Bazzill cardstock, added my choices of Authentique "Peaceful" papers: cozy, chill, and solitude.  I added some pink polka dot velum and some leftover scraps I have from Crate Papers Emma's Shoppe collection.  Once I decided what and where my papers and pictures were going to go, I hand cut a polaroid frame, tucked in some green accents, hearts, wood veneers and a title.  I even raised some embellishments with foam tape for dimension.  However, the left of my page was still empty.  I cut out multiple hearts from the Wplus9 Stackers and punched a few snowflakes.  Then added these to the left side of my layout.  Machine stitching held them all in place.  I added stickers from the Authentique "Peaceful" line and some My Mind's Eye Enamel dots.  Voila, a beautiful pink tribute to the girl in my life.

Your girl is a sweetie. This is a wonderful and very creative layout. Love all of the stitching and the stacked embellies beside the title. Your choice of papers coordinate so beautifully with the photos. Great use of white space, too. This makes me want to get back to scrapbooking :)

What a beautiful page with such lovely touches. I think it's so sweet to scrapbook your pet. I do it too, as often as I can. Flo sure looks sweet in her winter sweater. Everything ties in so nicely with the colors in the photos too. Wonderful!
