"Sweetie Pie"

Surprise! I am autoposting a layout!

I finised this one yesterday (I'm typing this on Thursday) and I just love it so much! I finally broke out my Crate Paper "Farmhouse" paper and I just love it, love it, LOVE IT!!!

I have had these photos of Laura printed for, oh, about a month now, and just haven't scrapped them! I have pictures of me from this same photoshoot, so keeps an eye out for a layout about me... I thought the colors of the Farmhouse collection were so fallish, which were perfect for these fall pictures! (oops- just realized I need to date this page- I forgot to!)

I started out with a Scrapbook Generation sketch for the background, and then I placed the photos whereever I felt like they went ok. Just so ya know, I'm not a two pager kind of gal. They take way too long to do, and after a while, I feel guilty for using so much time on just ONE layout. So, I don't do that many. Anyway, I'm not too fond of my photo placement, but it'll do. I really liked the tag "pull" technique that Megan Hoeppner used in the Nov./Dec. Creating Keepsakes magazine (I think that was the issue) and I wanted to use that on this layout. Instead of using Thickers for the title like I would normally do, I used one of the journaling card/tags that came on one of the Farmhouse pages. I'm so glad I have my LSS "The Scrapbook Princess" to go to now (it's not new... I just discovered it!) I bought the papers there.

Look at you getting all high tech and doing the autoposting! I am impressed. There are days when getting my post typed in and a picture attached takes all my brain power!
Love your double page LO! For not usually doing them, it looks awesome. Good photo placement on it. I find I like doing the double LOs for the effect you get when you open the page and get the double whammy from them. It's great for multiple photos too.
Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year. Can't wait to see more of your great work in 2012! :)

Ohhh, the Farmhouse papers do look AWESOME on this Heather, and I think your photo placement looks great! I know what you mean about the two-pagers! I stopped doing a lot of them, because I didn't like using so many of my supplies across two pages!! :)
