A Simple Layout!

 If you haven't seen my post about stamping goodies giveaway, please click here.
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Happy to share a layout with you....
First of all, take a look at the darling photos! Don't they just make you HAPPY? Well, it's my grandniece Apphia (nephew's daughter) we are talking about! Sadly I haven't met her yet, but thankfully this May I will be attending my niece's wedding and will have a chance to hold this precious baby girl!
 With two stamps (Pom Pom Flower and Music Background from Hero Arts) and a few small details (buttons, brads and tag), this page is done! As a stamper, I utilize my stamps to the max. I find my pages hardly have any layers! Perhaps I need to work on that :)
 076
Baby Apphia's smile is simply irresistible!I find myself smiling as I made the layout. And that is such a happy feeling.
 Ding---> Using a large stamp (such as Musical Background) is an effective way to stamp the background of a layout. Use the inks that will compliment the colors of the photos and embellishments.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Sweet layout, Virginia. The music notes and the colorful flowers are so striking. And I love that little tag! Your scrapbooking style is just as wonderful as your cardmaking style. I love the white space and clean lines :)

Kelly Griglione said...

Yep, so loving the large blooms to ground your photos! Also like how most are not colored, just the two where you want us to look first (and then of course the purple button to finish the visual triangle!) So sweet, Virginia!

Oh her sweet smile melts your heart! Your layout celebrates her so beautifully.

Another fabulous layout Virginia! She is just so photogenic and you always make the photo(s) stand out, which should be the ultimate goal of a scrapbook page.

This is so beautiful Virginia!! The use of the different sizes of blooms really sets a great scene (and as Kelly said above, really adds a grounding element), plus I love the music background and the little hearts at the centres of your flowers!
