I've lost track of the tally, but I believe Elizabeth is now in the lead for having the most senior portrait layouts completed :). I loved the aqua cardstock in the kit and had fun with paint :).
I colored my alphas with Glimmer Glaze - the hint of yellow, the shiny finish and the little bit of sparkle was perfect. I used the Pink Paislee tissue paper to create my flowers. I just die-cut circles in varying sizes, stapled them together in the center (love my tiny attacher!), and scrunched.
Carson recently turned seven and when I saw that the vintage flashcard that came in my kit read 6+1, I just had to do a layout about him.
I used strips of patterned paper and border stickers to create my background and I emphasized the number seven by stamping a circle around the number (more white paint!). A few dangles came in the kit, too, so I tied them up with some twine to accent my photo.
I'll share more here on the blog soon, but if you want to see my other layouts, you can visit the gallery. And did you hear that Scrap Rat is having a design team call? You can find all the details here.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a good one :). Tessa
