I've been wanting to scrap this story for some time now. I started telling my daughter that I love her to bits & pieces. I always proclaim that I love in her a million, billion, trillion, infinity pieces. We would have a ton of fun counting up and up and up together, kind of like a contest. Well one day, she decided that she loved me in 24 pieces and stuck to that. Every day...24 pieces. I'm not quite sure what to think of that but since she was only 4 at the time, I'll consider it super duper adorable.
I have been hoarding the wood veneer overlay from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Day Dreamer collection but couldn't decide what to use it for. Well, it finally clicked how perfect it would be to document this story.
Remember how I said I didn't adhere the wood to the background paper? Here's why. I had to draw the others. To do so, I placed the paper under the wood veneer and traced it with my pencil. then, I cut it out about 1/4" inside the line I drew. The pink, scalloped one above and the polka dot one, that I used for my title, are perfect examples.
Now I have a sweet layout documenting this cute story. Can I toot my own horn for a sec? I uploaded it to Two Peas the other day and it was selected as the Featured Project. I was super duper excited. Thanks for letting me share the exciting news. Thanks for stopping by.
