finally . . . an extra 24 hours!

Leap year.

It ain’t an often occurrence . . . obviously. ;)

Do I really feel like I’m getting an extra 24 hours?


Just another day.

But not here on the ol’ blog!

We get a little extra somethin’ somethin’ from that darling Miss Laura today!

One more lovely page for the month of February.

And boy, do I loooove this!

[ Shapes | XOXO (heart) / More Background Basics (circle backgrounds) / Smitten (title) ]

Love how she used the Backgrounds in mini version and backed them with paper!

Oh my freakin’ heck!

FABulous. Just fabulous!

Here’s what Laura has to say:

This whole layout started, because I wanted to cut a bunch of the circle background pieces, in smaller sizes, and arrange them to cover my entire page. My intention was to have 12 of them, in three rows. Somewhere, during the making of this layout, I decided to go with just the two rows, and add a long strip of pattern paper across the center of the layout to hold my photos and my title. I cut pieces of different patterned papers, to the same size as the background pieces, and adhered them to the backside. I managed to use 9 different patterned papers on this layout, and I don’t think it looks cluttered at all. To embellish the background pieces, without overwhelming them, I cut out some hearts (from the hearts & clothespins shape) from different patterned papers and cardstock, and added a large threaded button in the center of each one.

And that, my dear friends, is how I like to end a lovely month with an extra day. :)

    Oops, nevermind my silly question! I just realized that it says right here in the post that the saying is from the “Smitten” collection (which I believe I own – duh!)
