T.G.I.F. I am so glad the weekend is here. It is going to be a busy weekend for us. Jack has a little birthday party with a couple of friends and family. It should be a fun time. The theme is Transformers. I am going to surprise him with a Transformers Piñata. It is so cute. I will take lots of pictures to show you.
I have another layout to share using my favorite Echo in the Park Summertime. This is will be my last layout using this paper because I have used up the entire pack. I love the summer time when you are out playing and then the Popsicles come out. There is nothing like a good Popsicle to cool you off in the summer time. It is our little afternoon treat in the summer to go outside and get in our chairs and have a Popsicle around 4:00 in the afternoon. These are pictures of Michael's first Popsicle. He was just so darn cute with his first bite.
I was inspired by this layout while shopping at Simply Scrapbooks. I saw there some really cool cardstock from WE R Memory Keepers. The cardstock had the sewing around the edges already done. Well I love to sew on my pages so I thought I could create this look on my own, and I did. I used my sewing machine to go around the cardstock to create a border effect. I love the look. I will have to do this again. I think it gives the layout a nice clean look. I also used on my layout the Paper Trey Ink stamp set that goes with the Spellbinders labels One for my journaling block. I used the Tumbled Glass to give the border and then used the blending tool to soften the edges. I was really pleased at how this layout turned out.
