Hey ladies!

I managed to go to another crop at Picutre to Page on Friday. It was really fun, and there were a couple new gals there for me to talk to. This means, as usual, I only finished one page.

I've been sitting on the plans for this for a couple of months now. I had everything I needed, including the picture, except for the paper. I knew I needed a soft and sweet floral, but all my florals were so loud and bright, not right for this page at all.

This problem was solved when I realized I was sitting in the seat closest to the My Mind's Eye Tres Jolie paper rack. Wow! This perfect piece of paper was staring me down the whole time! I just love the vintage wallpaper feel of it...it is truly tres jolie!

Well, and having everything is only half true. When I got to the crop I realized I didn't bring any flowers with me (except for the small Jolee's flowers), and had to borrow these larger flowers from a fellow cropper. Wasn't that sweet?

I can't take full credit for the design for this page. I saw a page from a fellow Scrapologie member that I had to emulate. It's so lovely, and I knew it would be the perfect concept for this sweet picture I have of Eleana.


I didn't realize until just now that my title is phrased differently from the original. There are many differences between mine and hers, of course I had to make it my own. I had trouble with the title and knowing where to put it...and I regret writing the rest of my title so far away from the word "proof."

Instead of fabric wings I used black rub-ons topped with stickles. The flowers I used were prima, plus Jolee's, I used some American Crafts buttons, a few brads from MM (fuzzy brown brads and shiny gemstone brads) and the pink buttons are MM as well. Annnd Thickers for the title. I love that shade of brown.

My color inspiration of purple and brown came from a mini toon on Nickelodeon. The one with the two clay blogs that laugh and play tricks on each other. The title came up as 'purple and brown' and I had a total ah-ha! moment.

These layouts rock. I love the flowers you used on the layout of e. The colors are soft and the page looks great. I also love the paper you used on the layout below it. Is that Fancy Pants paper? It looks awesome. Love, Love, Love the felt flowers, Great work on both layouts!
