the 50's!

Here is a case where I made the layout before I took all the pictures! That means I'll be staging pictures to go with my layout.

Hey, you scrappers out there can't tell me you've never done that!  : )

Anyway, I made the outfit for my little grand-girl and the pics are in the layout, but I need some photographs of her in the clothes!

There will be more on the outfit itself in a post on August 7th!

The die cuts are all from Nifty Fifties and cut in Design Space.  The papers are all from the CTMH Seaside Collection.

I heat embossed the starbursts and the arrows.  I used embossing folders from CTMH as well as sequins and washi tape.

I embellished that little poodle with some Onyx beads and a leash.

I added a little fine glitter to the green stars for some sparkle on the black page.

My plan is a full length photo on page one.  Then a picture of her at the Back to the 50's Festival on the 2nd page.  Then I can journal on the "you rock" card.

 This 2 page layout is off to:
