For my layout I decided to pull out some pictures that were taken of my son in 2006! We were visiting my sister in New Jersey and decided to take my son to his 1st pumpkin patch. We were also looking for pictures to send out for our Christmas cards. Needless we took so many pictures that day! You will see those at a later time. The pictures I scrapped today are of him enjoying some beautiful Fall flowers and this little wagon! He fell in love with the flowers and this wagon. Sit down for this one ~ I used my Cricut again!!! I cut my wagon at 5 inches. I chose not to cut out the wheels for the wagon because Emma's circle die from the "Scallop & Stitched Circle Die was the PERFECT fit! Best of all it comes with her signature stitching. I used this awesome paper from Joann's that has such a wonderful shine to it! Expensive ~ yes about $2 dollars a sheet! YIKES but so worth it! I just cut out 1 inch strips for my wagon and inked the edges. I added some brads for nails. Since I have 4 x 6 pictures so in order for those size pictures to fit on my 12 x 12 paper I chose to cut off part of the wheels for the wagon. I lined the top of the wagon and around some of my pictures with raffia for the straw affect. I used Emma's "Piles Of Smiles" stamp set for my sentiment and the leaf dies to add that perfect touch! Click here to see how I made my sunflower using Emma's dies! My little tag with the date is from the stamp set "Just Simply Live" . I have to say this is another MUST have set!
You may have noticed my little layout out holder. Well my sweet friend and fellow design team sister Shar is selling these in her Etsy shop! Click here to check it out! They hold up to 12 x 12 layouts. I have to say not only is this wonderful to take pictures of you layouts but it is a FABULOUS display too! My son is TOTALLY enjoying this too because I will leave this LO hanging on here until I do my next one. I totally love it because he asks questions about the picture and why, where and what we were doing!
