THIS WAS ORIGINALLY POSTED ON THURSDAY MAY 12TH BUT BLOGGER ATE IT, REPOSTING TODAY.
I did this layout quickly. I just felt like doing a layout and pulled out some a few pictures I had. These were the only pictures I took on a trip to Texas for some reason but I still wanted my daughter and I to remember it so decided to scrap these together.
I used Basic Grey Euphoria for the paper, sticker flower element and the chipboard letters. The red pearls are Queen and Company. As you can see there is NO CRICUT! *okie gasps* I was too lazy to try and cut anything and since I had all the cool elements I just decided to slap it together quickly. Of course I did have to ink the edges, remember it is a compulsion with me at this point in my life and I cringe if I even think about not inking edges of paper *okie wonders if there is a therapy for this inkoitis that she seems to suffer*.
I am really trying to remember that not every layout has to be a masterpiece! Sometimes it can be simple, and that is okay.
The flower vine got kind of lost on the edge so I took it apart and cut the horizontal paper back a little so they would show more. I do like the pearls in the center for the flowers and it did add a little bling to help dress the layout up a little.
I did like how the flower vine overlapped onto the pictures an since the pictures were a little dark it showed up better.
I started not to share this layout since it isn't one I really put a lot of time and work in to but I figured we all have these kind and if we don't we need to remember it is about the pictures and not all the artwork.
