Two Scoops – finally

So it seems like it has taken forever to get this layout done. 10 mins this night and 10 mins that night. But it is finally finished. I must admit that I am not totally happy with it – but some bits I am very pleased with the outcome.

I do like the way the kindyglitz matches in with the rubons. Not a good lot thanks BG – some quality control needed there. They did not want to rub-on at all and kept breaking up. But the glitz hides a lot of that thankfully. And I finally got to use some ot the yummy textured flowers from Prima – have been hoarding them for what seems like forever. And the ribbons – the gorgeous ribbons – this little lot come from the last purchase I made from Craft Queen. Just LOVE the ribbons there. So excited that 123 are going to start stocking their ribbons. Can’t wait to see what we get in.

The photo is thanks to Jolene at CIS again. Used her tips to soften the colours and make the whole photo look a little dreamy. Just wish my photoshop would hurry and turn up – rang the store today and there is a delay in shipping it to them. Grrrrrr – want it NOW!!!

Had to do some cutting out – these little cupids are so cute. Did not like the paper that much but loved the little ‘bits’. A little pink kindyglitz on the wings and they are perfect. Had to put a seond one on only cause I stuffed up and ripped the paper a little when moving the original one around to fit the journalling rubons. Sigh – hate that – get a layout all nearly done and then stuff up.

The title is my favourite BG chippie alphas at the moment – the Wilma ones. I stamped them with white ink using the 2 Scoops swirl stamps and then put pink kindyglitz over the stamping to mimic the rubons affect. It’s very light – you have to look close to see – but I like it. The rest of the title is the plastic HS pink letters. Have had them forever and never used them although I have loved them when others have. So nice to finally get some ‘old’ stash used.

I uhmmed and ahhed about the journalling. I wanted something to express the sheer delight and joy Madame felt swinging on the swing. She would tip her head back and close her eyes and just squeal with joy. She is not one to be adventurous though – a bit of a scaredy-cat is our little poppet – so it was great to see her taking some risks, doing something ‘out there’.

But then with all the horrible accidents we have had here on the Coast this last week, and after seeing the pain her brother is going through, so worried about his friend – I wanted something that would reaffirm life, the joy in it and perhaps a little of how short it can be. So I stole little bits of the following quote for her layout. I plan on using it complete for a layout for DS1 later, one that will hopefully help him cope with what he is currently going through.

Live with intention. Walk to the edge.
Listen hard. Practice wellness.
Play with abandon. Laugh.
Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends.
Continue to learn. Do what you love.
Live as if this is all there is.

Since this is a personal layout it will go up in all the sites I visit.
