“It’s a GIRL thing” by Trisha Ladouceur:
Featured Collection: Fine and Dandy – Tickled Pink
I used the fine and dandy collection for my "It's a GIRL Thing" layout showcasing pictures from a girls day in Chicago last summer with a few of my fabulous friends whom I never get to see often enough. The sketch was a great starting point. Since I was working with horizontal photos, I turned the sketch 90 degrees and made it work! I traced a paper from the So Sophie collection to give me the bracket background page. I even broke out my sewing machine to give all edges a bit of additional detail.
“Wanted: It’s an OUTLAW thing” by Jana Eubank:
Featured Collection: Fine and Dandy – True Blue
Dress-ups aren't just for girls around our house. My son has just as much fun as they do dressing up as a pirate, storm trooper, or, in this case, an outlaw. I just HAD to use the cute Cowboy accent from the Blackbird collection. Using papers from the Fine & Dandy True Blue collection keep this page from feeling like a Halloween layout.
We can’t wait to see your entry!
