Clarissa and Me

I'm not sure how I found it, but I squeezed a little extra time out of my day recently to create a layout just because. I was inspired by the recent My Mind's Eye challenge to fussy-cut elements on a page. I chose to scrap an instax photo I recently took and the Miss Caroline line was a perfect, fussy-cut-able match:

I fussy-cut the small doilies and the floral pattern. I love my precision tip scissors - those things come in handy almost daily!

I'm loving the paper doilies trend right now, and since I don't scrap very many doily-compatible themes (boys are my main subject), I went full-force with the doily motif for this layout.

I hope your Wednesday is going well :). I've already been to the school for a 3rd grade assembly and a 2nd grade event today. Colten received a special award for making it into the half million words club (a reading achievement), and another special award for being one of only two kids in 3rd grade to accomplish that. Proud mommy moment for sure! Enjoy your day :). Tessa
