The page. Here is one of the fruits from yesterday. A layout about Andrea and his Tae Kwon Do classes. Part of parenting is figuring out when our kids need a little nudge to try something new. When we get it right, it's rewarding for everyone and that's been the case with TKD.
The process. I printed the photo last week and stared at it long enough to have the layout come together in my mind before even getting to work on it. Love it when that happens. I wanted to get messy because I had the luxury of time but settled for misted stars (above) and a little stamping. The neat freak in my is difficult to overcome. Again, the sewing machine is my friend. It is at arm's reach in my work room and seems to be a go-to technique in my recent projects. I had the most fun figuring out the layers of the small cluster on the bottom right corner. I could spend hours "styling" embellishments!
The Making Memories "you rock" tag is one of my first scrapbook purchases back in 2001. So old, in fact, the original adhesive backing had all dried up. I still have a few tags left from that pack and I'm glad I held on to it for...um...eleven years (!) because I like them and obviously still use them. Sparingly! You can see another tag from that pack in action on this layout. What about you? DO old embellishments still make it onto your projects?
