Inspired By

So I'm back this week with another layout that I was inspired via-the usual-pinterest. What would we do without it? Really?! I'm addicted.

So here's the layout that I loved-

It's by a scrapper whom I very much admire-Sasha Farina. I love her work. It's always layered and colorful but not too busy. In this layout I loved the circles that were scattered down the page & the three tags as photo mats. So stinkin' cute.

This is what I came up with-


I stuck with a 12 by 12 page as opposed to the 8 1/2 by 11. I also traced some manilla tags with the Kelly Purkey DD papers that I had leftover from the kit. I used a smattering of stars to do a little masking and some little wood veneer stars instead of circles to scatter down the page. For the pictures I cut them on photo paper but left margins to allow for a Polaroid effect which I mimicked with the SC Polaroid holiday frames.


And I added the date and a few little holiday-themed embellishments.


Now, let me explain my title-


I truly have the best husband ever. One of his wonderful traits is his ability to buy the most perfect gifts and this past Christmas was no exception. I found a little Kate Spade under my tree this year and boy was I excited. Excited enough that I am using the box as a scrap box in my scrap room because it jsut makes me happy every time I look at it. A beautiful classic, structured forest green, bag lay within the layers of pink patterned tissue paper. She's stunning. And that's just one of the reasons why he rocks.

He's pretty great and he's all mine ladies.
