This layout pays tribute to my mother-in-law, whom we affectionately call, "Nana Margaret." These photos were taken at Thanksgiving, and we had received the news that she had a clean bill of health after her second bout with cancer, chemotherapy, and radiation. We were so, so thankful!

I used large Zots to attach my large buttons, the Xyron 150 Create A Sticker to attach the striped ribbon, and Recollections foam circles to elevate several pieces on the layout.
I am getting more and more comfortable with my own handwriting, and decided to use it on this layout.

"busy bee" layout
I created this layout using products from these companies: American Crafts, Close To My Heart, Momenta atd, Recollections, Making Memories, and Cricut cart "Walk in My Garden." I really enjoyed the challenge of incorporating the black ribbon strip underneath the photos and the short yellow ribbon strip behind the title!

Edge distressed with sanding block.Ink layer #1, Old Paper
Saturday, July 9, 2011
I used Me and My Big Ideas Sunny Days patterned paper, American Crafts Heat Wave patterned paper (polka dots), Momenta atd Vibrant solid embossed cardstock (pink), Best Occasions Shiny Paper (turquoise), Bazzill Basics Cardstock Bank Roll, Peachy Keen Stamp You are My Sunshine, Close To My Heart ink Orange, American Crats thickers Heart, Recollections glitter and foam dots, Zots, Martha Stewart Glitter Glue, and buttons/brads/ribbon/thread from my stash! Hope you like it! Please leave a comment!
Ok, I have to give a shout out to Close To My Heart for their ink pads! I used Orange to stamp this cute little sun, and I have had this original ink pad since 2007, and I have never had to open my re-inker! You can visit their site here! www.closetomyheart.com
This is the first time I have scissor-distressed Bazzill cardstock, which doesn't have the white core I am used to, but I was pleased with the subtle lightening effect! And, being that I have 4 boys and only 1 daughter-in-law, I took advantage of the pink in this background paper, and put pink in as much of this layout as visually pleasing! :) (:
I have really enjoyed the collection of glitter I purchased with a coupon (Recollections)! And this is the first time I have used my new Peachy Keen Stamps! I do love those sweet little smiles, and the image was very crisp when I stamped it! I'll be purchasing more of these! You can visit their site: www.peachykeenstamps.com
I typed the journaling on my desktop, trying my best to match the turquoise in the papers with my font. And I was able to use my trusty Singer sewing machine to stitch a double frame around it in white for some focus, but hopefully without overpowering it. White brads, I added for the same reason. I hope you like my style, and I love comments!
