For my layout, I used the 6x6 Crate Paper Pad "Peppermint". I've had my eye on it for a while and when I saw it was 50% off at Target, I had to have it! There's even a sheet in there that is all to/from tags!
I have had an idea for using diamond shapes on a layout so I thought this was the perfect time to bring it to life!
I cut all the diamond shapes using my Cricut and the George and Basic Shapes cartridge. I then had the daunting task of laying them down.. it sounds easy, right? wrong! What I should have done is drew a line and went off of that.. but now I know for next time!
I sewed the diamond shapes using my sewing machine.
I used Basic Grey's Bloomers from their Jovial collection.
I used a Simple Stories date sticker, it's a teeny tiny one.. I'm surprised the date fit on it!!
My boyfriend got me 2 grab bags from Elle's Studio for Christmas and these were part of the goodies in it.. I used the Be Merry - 3 inch circles and the Lil' Snippets: Tiny Life Labels.
The American Crafts Thickers are much more glittery in person! They are the Red Lullaby Glitter Thickers, it's a very cute alphabet!
That's my Papa in the photo, my Mom's Dad. This picture was taken when I was 6 months old. My sister "decorated" him. I remember sitting on his back while we watched tv, just combing his hair. He'd let us put clips in it and do whatever we wanted. All I remember is how greasy his hair was, lol. He put something in it to make it that way.
JOURNALING: Papa would let us do anything we wanted to his hair and eyebrows. We would comb it for hours and add clips as we saw fit. His beard was adhered with scotch tape this time!
