Do What Makes You Happy

I love the Bold and Beautiful collection from 49 and Market that came in the June Très Jolie kit; it’s filled with soft grays and pinks and lavenders, perfect for a variety of styles.
I chose to use “The Lovely” to scrap these photos taken by my daughter-in-law last December. 

We’ve had a series of late winters here in the Northeast. Last year’s hunt for a Christmas tree was done in lightweight jackets and rubber boots, rather than the usual cold weather gear. The kids found a puddle that begged to be jumped into. 
These shots of Sophia are so filled with joy that I just had to scrap them…

I decided to borrow a few things from the June Cards, Tags and More kit, starting with a stamp and ink to create a little more texture around the page. I think these images blended in perfectly with the overall design of the paper.

I also borrowed the stencil to create even more texture with the chalk ink that came in the main kit.

I used another sheet of paper to cut out matting for my pictures and glued them to bits of chipboard, then to the photos. I added another layer of chipboard under each piece and then glued them to a strip of packaging to add even more dimension.

Once the photos were adhered to the paper, I started adding some of the beautiful 49 and Market flowers that came in the kit.

To celebrate the first anniversary of the Très Jolie Kit Club, Kim added a surprise bonus to our kits: a pad from Lemon Craft, filled with green patterned papers to die cut and punch and a lot of leafy images to cut out by hand. I’ve used several of these leaves and vines to embellish my flower clusters.

I’ve place a few of the laser cut shapes to fill in the “holes” around the photos.

Another “borrowing” – this time from the Mixed Media kit – using a few of the mini roses to match my purple flower and those awesome yellow boots…

And to finish it off – a polymer bird by Scrapberry’s and the title: part of the beautiful chipboard set by 49 and Market.
