LM #125 'BANANARAMA'
WE WANT TO SEE FRUIT ON YOUR LAYOUTS!!!!
So my sister had my little baby nephew last Wednesday!! Woo hoo!!
With that said, you will see me making a lot of 'naked' layouts for our challenges for a while. I will try to get some of JaKobe (my son) in there but I really want to get a book started for her! This page is 'apple of my eye' and is 6x6. It will fit a 3x5 pic with hidden (or not so hidden!) journaling behind the pic. The green paper is embossed with my cuddle bug folder 'swiss dots'. The apple and sentiment are cut on my Cricut using the All Occasions Cards cart.
I used Crystal Effects on the apple to give it that shiny apple look.....if that makes sense! lol! I popped the sentiment on pop dots that I painstakingly had to cut into itty bitty pieces to fit behind the letters! ugh! Thank goodness for my fabulous Tweezer Bee scissors! (I was not paid any promotional blah blah to say that either!)
I inked the edges of the apple pieces and the sentiment so it would stand out from the paper. Of course I had to use my white gel pen to stitch and accent the page. I also distressed the edges of the papers. The star border at the bottom of the page is a felt embellishment strip I bought in a rak.
Ok, enough of me babbling about how awesome I think my page is and go get started on yours and get it linked at Lasting Memories by Saturday night!!! GO GO GO!
Thanks for checking out my page! And I LOVE reading your comments!!
