I made this layout for the SNL Saturday Stash Dive featuring Washi tape and Brads. I used the washi tape to create the scalloped border and accent the banner card and dress it up a little. The cards on the page came from Pebbles and so did the paper - the Seen and Noted Collection. I used my brads like I would normally use enamel dots, as accents of color here and there.
The picture does have a story to tell. My granddaughters are twins, and they both lost their two front teeth about the same time. I wanted a picture of it. They both posed. Charlee, the one in front, shows her toothless smile - but Reagan on the other hand, used her fingers to pull her mouth open wider, and you cannot see her missing teeth. And me? I snapped the picture, and did not even check it out, so when I finally uploaded it to the computer and saw my results I was disappointed. Not quite the picture I imagined. But it does tell even more of a story than the one I originally planned. So now I do look back on this an smile.

I was inspired by a friend on YT and Facebook to do more with my blog. Her blog is awesome. Hopefully I will keep with it this time. This is a layout I created using a picture of me and my sister. I am the older of the two of us. I was about three, and her two. My Mom took this picture of us in the yard wearing our "can-can" slips. The camera she had back in 1957 did not have a flash, so most of the pictures were taken outside. I only remember a couple in-doors, which I thought turned out just fine, but she thought they were better outdoors. Not too long before she passed away we were looking at this picture, and she said she did not know why she did not take a picture of us in our dresses, that they were cute too. She just did not think of it. I guess I never did either. I never even thought of whether or not we had dresses or not.
The paper I used was from Close to My Heart. An old collection I had in my stash. I used my Cricut for the fonts. The 'snapshot details' stamp is from Elle's Studio. I Also used a Tim Holts filmstrip. It has been a while since I created this, and it was for a You Tube Layout Hop, but it has always been one of my favorites. I wish my Mom could have seen it, I think it would have been one of her favorites too.

A process video of a picture of my granddaughter Reagan in a tree (a big tree with a bunch of other kids) with rabbit ears on. So cute. I used pink and green as my colors, mainly because I found a flair that had green and pink on it that I wanted to use - however, I forgot to use it, then I really did not see a place to put it after I finished. I hope you enjoy the video, and maybe it inspires you in some way to create a layout using these colors too.

This is my second entry into Traci's 'giddy4scrapbooking's 750 Subbie Challenge'. A very quick layout, but I think it turned out great, considering how slow I usually am. I did add some sprinkles of the Heidi Swapp gold lame Color Shine after the video. Please watch!
