My daughter's friend wants to be a photographer and librarian when she grows up. So, she practices on her friends taking their pictures. I love the way she captured my daughter in this photo.

This is a layout I did for my first S.H.O.P (stash horded on pages). I wanted to start using those things in my stash of scrapbooking supplies that I have been hording. I have a bad habit of thinking, "If I use this here, I won't have it for later." How silly is that? So I am on a mission to use up my stash and especially those horded items before allowing myself to buy more. To that end, I used the Creative Imaginations Awkward Family Photos paper and a couple of the stickers, some yellow enamel dots, alpha stickers that I have had so long I have no idea what company they were from, and three wooden precious moments type buttons (the poem called for four young ladies standing in a row so I made a 4th from my Silhouette Cameo. I cut the image 8 times and glued them all on top of each other to give the same thickness as the buttons.)
I am very pleased with the layout in general but especially since I used some of the things I have been hording.

This is a layout I made using the sketch. The layout is of our family vacation in New York. We had been walking around the financial district and after taking pictures with the bull we found Bowling Green Park and it was the perfect spot to rest our aching feet. I switched it up a bit by adding my journal spot below the picture because I wanted to put the map location in the circle. It had a small arrow pointing to our location but I plan on using the map location and a geo tag on each page in the New York trip album and a consistent theme throughout the book. So, I added a geo tag and covered up the small arrow. I did a date stamp with arrows between the two photos and then did a stamp above and two below without re-inking the stamp to give it the fade out look. The tile and the photo corners were cut with my Silhouette Cameo and the map was cut using the print & cut feature of the Silhouette studio software.
