Hello Eight

Another day, another layout!

Don't worry, next week is release week at Neat & Tangled and I'll be back to my regularly scheduled programming, but since I've been away from it for so long, I'm not quite ready to stop scrapbooking since I'm really enjoying myself, and getting things done to boot.

This is Ellie's 8 year old photo.  I've stopped ordering the school photos (with the exception of the class picture) because they always turn out badly, and I'd rather not waste money on bad photos (because you have to order them before they are even taken) and just spend a little more on a professional photographer.

For this layout I used one of the Documenter/Project Life kits from Studio Calico for most of the elements, the stamp, frames, journaling cards are from there.  Some very old thickers completed the title and I used some Maggie Holmes Craft Market Ephemera in the gold frame to the right.

The right side was looking a bit bare, so I added some die cuts, the Papertrey Ink Branching Out die.  I cut it from a dark blue and light gray cardstock and offset them a bit to soften the dark die cuts.  I also added a bit of detail to the leaves with a gold marker.

Ok, I'm keeping it short tonight.  I stayed up way too late to unfortunately watch the Caps lose to the Pens, and so now I'm tired and somewhat depressed.  :(
