Remember when you were a little child and if you made a really pretty picture, your mom would stick it to the front of the refrigerator? No? Don't worry, my mom didn't do those things either! But I like this layout, created with my Birds of a Feather August Kit SO MUCH that I feel like a little kid wanting to show it off! And I may just stick it to the front of MY fridge!
Yes, the picture is of me lazing around in the pool with my little neurotic doggy, Bailey. She cannot STAND to be left out of anything - whether it's the room I am in or, in this case, the float in the pool I am in!
And as pleased as I was with my layout, I was positively over the moon with my next project!
I found a cheap unfinished picture frame at Michaels that was perfect for covering with papers from my August Kit. The layout was easy to make with the majority of the time spent putting together and arranging the flowers. I used sticker flowers, fussy cut flowers and flowers made from punches for my "floral arrangement" and sealed everything firmly into place with Glossy Accents - a little something I learned from my bestie Alissa. The only real difference between this and a "regular" scrapbook layout is that I covered all my papers on the frame with a gel medium to harden them somewhat and make them more durable and less prone to tearing.
Here's a close-up of the flowers I had so much fun making!
Hope to see you over at Birds of a Feather and see what YOU'VE made with your kit! They are packed with so many goodies, the projects I can make seem to go on and on and on and on!
