Hi, everyone! I have decided to do another layout. Yes, I am not giving up on my quest to become a better scrapbooker. :)
My sister got my five month old, Matthew, a cute little outfit that said: Pinch Me, I'm Cute! There was a funny little crab on top of the words and I thought to myself: Well, wouldn't that make a great title for a layout? I never think about layouts by accident and usually force myself to make them. So I further thought to myself: Well, I better scrap it, then!
|This is the original picture which was cropped for the layout.|
I used the Martha Stewart Crafts Birthday Cake Art cartridge for the letters: Chic Font. They are cut at 1 in. The fun crabs come from the Life's a Beach cartridge. I cut those at 1.5 in. I sprinkled on some Clear Rock Candy Dry Glitter. This stuff is great because it is see through but you can get still the sparkle! (Which I am milking until the boys get older because by then I don't think glitter will quite cut it.)

Lastly, I cut some yellow and turquoise rectangles at 2.25 x 5.5 and arranged them on the side.
I am finding - at least, for myself - that if I keep scrapbooking simple I enjoy it more. Which is kind of funny because I can make some pretty complicated cards. :D
I hope you enjoy your weekend, get crafty and find some good deals for National Scrapbooking Day, May 5th!
