Big Sis

I've had this picture of my oldest three children sitting on my desk for months. I was going to use it for another layout and ended up using a different picture. I have enjoyed seeing their cute faces as I stamp but decided to go ahead and make a full page for it. I saw a cute layout idea on PageMaps this month and thought it would be perfect. I started by trimming down a piece of 12 x 12 white cardstock by 1/2 inch on two sides and rounding the edges. I layered that cardstock onto a full piece of Pumpkin pie cardstock. I pulled out my scrap ribbon jar and picked some random ribbons. I laid them across and simply stapled them to the page. The big flower is a die cut from Stampin' Up! I added some white gel pen dots and lines and a celery ribbon bow in the center. I had fun with the letters. The B and S are die cuts I made with my new Big Shot. The i is actually a capital I that I cut off to make lower case. I pulled out a g and s from my chipboard and inked them with craft ink. The metal flowers are new flower brads also from Stampin' Up! These things are hardy! This page went together really quickly and I thoroughly enjoyed scrapping again. It has been TOO long! In fact, I have decided to start my Friday scrap group up again. Starting next week, I will have open scrappin at my house on Fridays from 10 - 2pm. Bring your stuff or use mine. I hope you'll come!!
(ribbons are random from walmart, stampin up, and even Old Navy!)
