Ooooh how I love this collection! Crate Paper’s ‘DIY Shop’ <—- Go on.. just LOOK at it all! So pretty!
I immediately ordered from Two Peas and was so excited when my order arrived the other day. So, I took some time for me today and made a layout.
This is ‘totally’ Alannah when she was 4-5yrs old. To get her smiling for pics was work…So, most pictures of her have this lovely “I don’t have time for this” expression.
As you can see she is an expert making that face. She is grumpy and adorable at the same time! Kinda like ‘grumpy cat’. Don’t know who grumpy cat is?… you.must.google.noooooow. Seriously. I just die everytime I see that cat, lol! SO CUTE!
I did a bit of clustering of embellishments and layering. I used brads from various companies and those fantastic stick pins are from Little Yellow Bicycle’s ‘Naturals’ collection (so are those cork alphas!)
I also did something I swore I would NEVER do. Ever. Mind you.. I lie to myself a lot, lol. “No, Tamara.. a half a cake is only like.. 5 calories. You burn more calories to chew it…”…. See. Lies.
Needless to say I kinda cringed when I started dripping that blank ‘ink’ onto my layout. How dumb is it that I was trying not to ‘mess up”.. Umm.. Hello, doofus. You are purposely dripping black crap onto your layout.. there’s no ‘not’ messing it up.
I am still trying to figure out if I like it or not. I did want some more ‘heavy’ color on the layout so black made sense to pull in the few touches of black around the photo.. but. Hmmm. Thoughts? Be honest.. I will try not to fling ink on you if you offend me.
… but I WILL slash your tires.
LOL.. I am messin’.. I’d never slash someone’s car tires.
Your bicycles better watch out though…
Anyhoot, that’s it! I hope you all have a super awesome weekend!Pin It
