My Hair is Blowing in the Wind!

Friday, November 1, 2013


It's not my favorite photo, but there is something about it that is real and natural for my "me" scrapbook.

It was a windy day! We were out at the lake so that I could get some photos of Rachel. After a while, she turned the camera on me and took some shots. I've been holding onto this photo for months until I found the perfect paper to use.

Here's how I put this page together...


I used loads of different products. I really love the background paper and banner. They are from the Glitz Design - Cashmere Dame collection. I also used some goodies from Allison Kreft's - Recorded collection. The butterfly was made with a Stampin' Up butterfly punch.


I'm a sketch kinda girl, so I used a fun one from Creative Scrappers.

They even had a great idea on their blog. Why not flip the sketch? That's what I ended up doing for this page. 
Do you ever flip your sketches?

This is a great photo of you and your layout does a perfect job of highlighting it. I am definitely a sketch kind of girl too. I rotate 'em, flip em, change em... whatever I need to do to make it fit my pics and embellies.
