So Happy Together

I was soo excited when I opened up my September Gossamer Blue kit last month and saw the exclusive papers. I knew right away which photos I wanted to scrap because one of the papers matched my daughter's outfit so perfectly.  Well, actually the patterns were identical but the colors clashed but I quickly printed this photo out in black & white and my problem was solved.  Check out this layout and you'll see why my jaw dropped.

How cool is that? I wanted to use this paper all up and I did on another layout, which I'll reveal here and on the Gossamer Blue blog soon so you'll just have to wait and see. It'll be a fun post though because I actually changed the color of my daughter's shirt.  That's another day soon though.


If you know me, you might expect a few layers, some splattered mist and stitching. The journaling is hidden on the little white card with the blue enamel dot.

These girls of mine are my EVERYTHING. I am so honored to be their mommy, through the triumphs, tribulations and struggles. They are the first thing I think of at night and when I wake up. Okay, enough of the sappy mommy stuff.  Let's look at one more thing I love about this layout.


I am proud of my labor of love stitching. I machine stitched each heart and it took a while with lots of twists and turns but it just looked so bare as a border without it.

I hope you'll visit us over on the Gossamer Blue gallery or say hi in the community. Until then, thanks for stopping by. Now go on a get crafty!
