We R Memory Keepers-Guest Designer for Simply Spring!

I got the awesome opportunity to be a guest designer on We R Memory Keeper's Facebook page!  They sent me papers and embellishments from their  beautiful new 'Simply Spring' collection. I scrapped  some of the Easter pictures from last year using those papers.

I cut the title on my cameo, placed the green pattern paper title on the bottom and layered the stripe paper on top (just a little off) and sewed it down on the yellow background paper. Initially, I was going to journal directly on the Sweet Notes card but chose to instead print the journaling on a vellum sheet and just stapled it on the sweet notes journaling card. I like the softness and the dimension the vellum sheet adds.

After adding the banners, the circle spot, title and all the layers, I wanted to add something extra to it. So, made two polaroid frames on the cameo, smile and a heart and used the soft pink paper with the wire pattern. Sewing straight is so difficult!! I still don't know how to control speed properly. If I go to slow, my thread breaks or bundles up, If I go too fast ,it is not straight! Practice, Practice! 

Too finish the layout, I added some mist splatters! I am very happy with the way this turned out actually, considering I run away from pink:-) I guess you can use pink in moderation on a boy's layout as well! Just use it as an accent color! 

I hope to get some crafty time this weekend, although Sid is working on both Saturday and Sunday. Hoping to do something crafty with Anurag. :-) .

 Easter is almost approaching this year and I can't wait to go on an Egg Hunt with Anurag again! 
Thanks for visiting me today! Have a good weekend!

What a sweet page, Viji! Those pics are perfectly precious, and your palette is perfect for Easter! I adore the look of vellum, too, but I've never tried typing journaling on it. LOVE it to bits! TFS!
