Swing Kid...


Happy Friday! I hope that you have been enjoying this week's Imaginisce-Scrapbook Adhesives Blog Hop. I am a big fan of the adhesives we got to play with this week and I'm so glad I get to share my layout project with you today!

I created a scrapbook page for my little rugrat to commemorate the first time he ever played on the "big kid" swings at the park. It happened in the fall and I was happy that I had some Apple Cider patterned paper, which gave me the perfect color palette.


To create my own sparkly title, I made use of Scrapbook Adhesives' Adhesive Sheets, which was so terrific for die-cutting the thin letters and glittered up beautifully. Also, the Foam Squares from SA were easy to trim to help pop-up my title.


I also created these sweet little rosettes from the Apple Cider paper and the very sticky Crafty Power Tape was just what I needed to secure them together and to the page.


I love the idea of using photo corners on scrapbook pages and adore these kraft-colored ones from Scrapbook Adhesives.
