Bird is the Word ADORE {Junk Food Addict Layout}

For a while now it's been on my mind to record 
my daughter Cami's "addiction" to junk food, 
so when Bird is the Word offered up the new 
word ADORE I knew this was my opportunity! 

***The challenge went LIVE on Sunday and every 
challlenge is open for A FULL MONTH so you 
have plenty of opportunity to play along 
Winner's are voted for by the DT and the prize 
is really worth it - the latest Tidbitz in Time Kit!!
You still have 12 days left to get your WISH page in!

I started off by spraying through my Dusty Attic 
chicken-wire chipboard 
(simply because I am OBSESSED with this design!)

Also crazy-in-love with this Maya Mist - Pink Lemonade!  

Must be because Summer is approaching here but I am
feeling so bright and breezy these days & I guess 
it is coming out in my "happier" colours!!

 Occasionally these days I am using my Instax photos
to scrap with.  They are so cute!  Little credit-card 
sized Polaroid photos that pop right out of the
Instax camera!!  Not the best quality but with an 
appeal similar to iphone photos...

Recently I won a FANTABULOUS RAK from 
Chantal/Scrapbookit (Primary Colours Challenge) for
this layout & the goodies arrived last week
- woohoo!  

Used some of them on this page & then, the 
NEXT DAY my Purple Pumpkin parcel arrived, 
so now I am absolutely INUNDATED with 
Purple Pumpkin cuteness!!

At Bird is the Word you can use the word 
ANYWHERE on your layout so I added the 
"Adore"ticket tag.

 I used 3 different border punches and lots of
itty-bitty embellishments including that CUTE oreo 
biscuit! {Thanks Chantal!  That was my FAVOURITE
thing in the package!}

I recently bought a pack of TINY glue-dots that
I am loving using to secure my twine. 
{Much less messy than glue!}

I really love this page. Not my style at all, but it just shouts summer, happiness and cuteness. And that oreo biscuit? There is no word to describe it.

And i think your blog has loaded properly for the first time on my pc. LOVE the scalloping and doilies down the side - first time i've seen them!

Diana said...

super cute page!
I love the misting.
I am also crazy about mists.
So glad I succumbed to the trend. I can't seem to do a LO without mists now. Plain white cardstock just doesn't do it for me anymore.

Bente Fagerberg said...

Love this lo. Makes me think of Summer, which alas, we are going to be waiting for here. Winter is near.....
Love the small photos. They make for such different layouts. Sometimes I like a large photo and sometimes several small ones.
Been nbacktracking here and boy have you been busy!!!! Churning out one wonderful delish layout after another! i don't know how you do it!!! :o)
