Scrap Busting Layout

After inundating my faithful readers with layouts and posts I took a break for both of us yesterday and today's post is a short and sweet one.

I discovered a bag of pretty scraps from the Elmwood Park kit that I decided to use up. I pulled a pair of photos of Miss Three from last year when she found my lipstick.

I played with this layout and tried adding quite a lot of embellishments and nothing worked so I pared it right back to the photos and the patterned paper stack. I tried a tip I saw from Lilith Eeckels and stapled my stack together using my tiny attacher and then adhered parts of that stack with my glue runner. I loved this technique and I will be using it again. I added a couple of puffy Amy Tangerine stickers top and bottom  of the stack and called it done.

I am so happy to have these photos the star of the layout as they show MT's personality so clearly. Her emotions are so mercurial and fast changing and these two shots really capture that.

I have matched a wedding photo to a piece of patterned paper but I am at a loss as to how to embellish the images. I would love to see anyone else's wedding layouts. If you have some that you love I would really appreciate a link in the comments.

I am totally looking forward to the weekend. We don't have anything planned but sometimes that is just what you need. I am hoping we might manage to hit the pool and get some family relaxation time in. Have a great weekend, wherever you spend it. Oh and Happy Mother's Day to those celebrating on Sunday.
