[ DesignsJust Because (happy) / About Town (…fantastic) / This Everything (flower) ]

I loooove the super large phrase!
It’s just ever-so dreamy.

Here’s what Laura has to say:

I can count the number of 8.5×11 layouts I’ve created in my 20+ years of scrapbooking on one hand. But when I saw the “this is going to be fantastic” cut file in Kerri’s About Town kit, it inspired me to switch things up from my normal 12×12 layouts and create an 8.5×11 spread. I wanted my “this is going to be fantastic” piece to fill up one full page, so I cut it from white cardstock, added a 6×6 piece of patterned paper behind the cut out words, and then matted the entire piece on blue star patterned paper. I die cut 14 flowers from white cardstock as well, and adhered them around the edge of a sheet of white cardstock (trimming off any excess hanging off the edges) before misting the entire background and machine stitching around the edges.

I took these photos of my oldest daughter, Alyssa, while she was home on winter break after her first semester of college. I love hearing her talk about college life and how much she loves it there. “Happy” is the word I would use to describe her feelings about college, so I die cut the word “happy” from Kerri’s Just Because kit, from both white cardstock and the same blue star patterned paper I used on the second page. I wrote my journaling based off a lot of what she’s told me about the experience so far and the transition from living at home to living in the dorms. I think the “this is going to be fantastic” sums up her feelings for the rest of her college experience.

fantastic, i tell ya.
