Life is pretty amazing!

It has been a while since I have done a layout. One of the many perks of my photography hobby is that I now have more photos to choose from for doing a little scrapbooking! This is my daughter, Marie, sitting with a fresh coffee that I made her and letting me snap a photo of her looking out the window.

Details for this months' MFT release are at the bottom of the post.

I combined one of the new and upcoming releases from MFT "Vertical Greetings II" set with some other previously released Die-namics and Melissa Frances products.

The sentiment and coordinating Die-namics "When you stop and look around, this life is pretty amazing" will be released May 1st. I thought the sentiment went perfectly with her expression!

All the flowers were made from Die-namics rolled dies as well as Melissa Frances patterned papers and crepe paper. The paper border along the bottom was also made with a "Rosette Die-namics" that I didn't roll into a rosette.

Here are all my SUPPLIES:

Pretty layout! Again I like that you did something other than a card! I REALLY like cards and sometimes I feel like I get in a rut and thats all I am creating!

OK, totally love this -- this is a perfect sentiment for a scrapbook page! I hadn't thought of that as I went through the hop -- I got tired (Sat. a.m., what can I say?) and stopped leaving comments - but this is wonderful and I love how you used the dienamic to make the frame! Excellent idea!

Cindi Flass said...

What a wondeful layout! Love seeing those on these hops, and I love how you used the border die and the vertical frame/sentiment.

Beautiful scrapbook layout! My favorite element, once again, were the Royal Roses (I just _love_ them!), cut out of crepe paper. I haven't seen that product on the market yet, but you can be sure that I will definitely be on the lookout now (I have just been waiting for something like that to come along)! ;)
