Being in such the springy mood, that I’m sure most of us are, when I saw this page from Laura, I let out a heavy sigh and went ahhhhh….

It truly is beautiful in every sense–from the colors, to the accents, and to especially the girls.


[ Designs | Something To Say (beautiful) / Life Additions #2 (floral 3×4) ]

Here’s Laura to tell you all about it.

I recently re-organized some of my albums, and in the process I came across a handful of layouts that I pulled out with the intention of re-scrapping them. The original layouts were extremely bulky and took up a lot of space in my albums. While I don’t feel the need to re-scrap each and every layout that has a little bulk to it, there were some that were just way too bulky for my taste now. And quite honestly, with the massive amount of albums that I have accumulated from 22+ years of scrapbooking, I really like to be able to squeeze as many layouts into each album that I can.

These photos of my girls, from 10 years ago when they were flower girls in my cousin’s wedding, were on one of the layouts that I wanted to re-scrap. I was browsing thru Kerri’s cut files and came across the floral piece from her Life Additions #2 kit. It could be sized as a 3×4″ cut, and I knew it would be perfect for this layout, since I could print several of my photos in the same 3×4″ size and collage them all together in my favorite style – a clean and linear grid design.

I picked out the word “beautiful” from Kerri’s Something To Say kit, because – well, because I think my girls looked beautiful in their flower girl dresses and pinned up hair! I finished off my title with some simple white alpha stickers and then added a few enamel dots to the centers of the floral pieces for simple embellishing.


It’s just lovely, Miss Laura! And I can understand the desire to want to de-bulkify (yeah, it’s a word). While I did try to keep my pages fairly ‘flat’ over the years, there were a few trends and QVC products I may have dabbled in.
