Another New Design Team for me! Creative Scrappers Debut {Every Type of Girl Layout} Crate Paper

Did you see the good news?  Yup, I'm on the team!!

As you all know I have been using Creative Scrappers
sketches for a long time now, have guest designed for
Kristine there and also contributed to "Creating with
Sketches" - the book she compiled full of sketches
and interpretations from designers all around the world.

So it was bound to happen that eventually I would have
the opportunity to design for her alongside some
amazingly talented ladies who have welcomed me so warmly!

I had FUN with this one as you can see!  The result
 is one of my FAVOURITE layouts of all time...

Instead of using one big photo I went with SEVEN credit-card
sized ones taken using my Instax camera - I LOVE that toy!!

I created a mixed media background with mists, inks, stencils
and stamps and was so happy with the results :)

Everything just fell into place on this layout :)
GOT to love it when that happens...

As well as 7 photos I managed to fit in 5 
different journaling spots too!

The title "Every type of Girl" matches the mixture of random
photos of my youngest daughter, together with tidbits of 
information about her likes and dislikes & her personality.

All the papers here are the FABULOUS Crate Paper
(mixed up lines but mostly RANDOM and EMMA'S SHOPPE).

Embellishments and stickers also Crate but metal
 book plates are American Crafts and bling is Prima.
