Crazy Stupid Love Layout - The Scrapbook Store September Sketch - Lily Bee - Purple Pumpkin

I got this layout done for the sketch challenge over at
The Scrapbook Store HERE.

I've had these silly photos floating around forever & I
knew this was their chance to shine :)

September 2012 Sketch Competion

That stamping you see is using my new bubblewrap 
stamp that I WON during a blog hop - it's from Donna
Salazar & is REALLY AMAZING - I'm sure you can
see what I mean - beautifully designed to give great texture.

I punched out some hearts from a couple of the stickers
to make matching embellishments.

I add an image of the punch shape onto the paddle so that
when my punches are all standing up in their basket I can
see the design without having to lift them all up.

Cami has such a fun time with her brothers.  She LOVES 
and HATES having two older brothers but when they have
fun they REALLY laugh :-D

All the stickers are from Lily Bee Design & I've embellished
 with some Purple Pumpkin twine & a lovely bright bottle 
cap button.

Instead of using the bunting stickers to make a pennant banner
I used them as triangles instead - geometrics being so on trend.

I love that I have got through a few pre-printed photos
(happened when my computer was away being repaired
so I had no access to my printer).  I really need to use them
more often rather than always printing new ones :)
