Soo Excited - Scrapbook Layout

Hello Bloggers

When I was removing photographs from a photo album the other week I came across this photo of my eldest Niece Angharad on her 4th birthday sooo many years ago.  I didn't put it away into the storage boxes, but instead left it out to scrapbook.  Another scraplift from Scrap 365!

I used K&Company, Bazzill, Bo Bunny and Snippets papers.  I also used my new Toy for the first time, my lovely shiny new Cricut!  Love it!
Making Memories little word stamps, Stampin Up, Tim Holtz script stamps as well my Nesties.
And what can I say?  String!  Love string on a layout! Oh and coloured eyelets in pink and brown as well as a pretty brad.
Here I used the Tim Holtz stamp on the Labels die.  I used shadow cutting on my Cricut for the title.  I used some stamps around the edge as well (not used until now!) inked with Vintage Photo DI.  The edge die is a Martha Stewart.  

Thanks for looking and please leave me a comment in the box so I know you have been.  I am away for the next few days at NEC Quilt Exhibition!  Woo Hoo!

I love this whole page. From the mix of colors to the lacing string.

Fabulous layout. The lacing works a treat to break up the block of patterned paper across the middle. Smashing colours too. Have some fun "you" time at the Quilting Exhibition!
