New Ooh La La from My Minds Eye
I used the "backside" of " We are memory keepers/ heart attack" paper that is at paper pals for the Sunflower lay-out. I loved the bright yellow with the grungy white edging, it is perfect for summer! I like to do that a lot, I call it "backsiding", using the back of a lot of the patterned paper is an excellent way to give a little oomph to the background without over-doing it. I used the backside of the "My Minds Eye, breaking free" series for the "someone to watch over me " lay-out. It was perfect with the "My Minds Eye, Ooh La La" series of paper at paper pals which I used in all my lay-outs. This paper was so unbelievably fun! I experimented with squares and small rectangles and recycled some lay-out ideas in albums past. It was fun mixing different patterns and colors in a way that didn't overwhelm the page. This is such a cheerful, fun and versatile paper!
Also, I would like to answer the design team challenge about my favorite scrapbooking products and I think these lay-outs, like most of my lay-outs, answer this. I love clocks, angel wings and brads. I like anything I can use with them. I like Heidi Swapp ghost clocks and wings and Tim Holtz wonderful little metal arrows I use with all my clocks. I also love stars, star chipboard, star brads, ghost stars, you name it. Those are my favorite embelishments! I am always sneaking them on stuff!
I had so much fun with this "My Minds Eye, Ooh La La" paper and the super nifty embelishment sheet. I know you will love it too!
Keep Scrap booking!
