Here is the layout inspiration for this week by KariAnn S. Her blog is one where I always find great pages (and I just looked back and realized we did another page from her blog in week 24. I did a very literal scraplift of this one - right down to the buttons & heart shape as the embellishments. As I was putting it together, I wasn't loving it - but didn't have the time to spend trying to pick different papers. (I think it was the colors... yellow is soooo out of my comfort zone, but I couldn't use anything blueish because the picture had a very blue cast to it that I was only partially able to fix in Photoshop Elements...) I used the sewing machine again - loving that - going to have to stock up on some more colors! As I was looking for embellishments, I found some Basic Grey buttons that I got last year and really hadn't touched and the colors went perfectly with the papers I had chosen and Mattie's skirt. Once I picked those out, my whole opinion of the page changed and I ended up being really pleased with it!
