Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Patterned Paper: Hambly Studios, Fancy Pants, Daisy D’s
Letters: Making Memories
Ribbon: Prima Marketing
note: I really like these pictures for the memories of the time they were taken. My daughter was really the focus of the family that month (working with her communication delays), so it was only right that she popped herself into the photos that I was trying to take of myself. I figured I could crop her out when I was done, but I changed my mind and decided to leave her little blur in the corner of them.
journaling reads: this girl loves a good park
12x12 interactive layout
Technique: I have a series of tutorial photos that I took as I created this layout. The front flap is bound to the main page by stringing ribbon through the punched holes along the border. This allowed for me to get all five photographs that I wanted of that time onto the one layout, and it gives it a wonderful book-feeling, too.

for Arin's miniVSN challenge on splitcoast: "Becoming Jane Austen" the challenge is to alter a book in less than two hours, but I cheated and spent two days on mine :)
Kimberly Poloson paper and epoxy tag by Fiskars; Tim Holtz Grungeboard hinges and label holder; Tim Holtz linen Crackle Paint; Heidi Swapp bark and gold metallic paints; K and Co. button; Imaginisce metal doo-dad; Heidi Swapp chandelier bling; Stampin' Up! Noteworthy stamps and Vanilla craft ink; Brown Staz-on Ink; and ribbon is maybe from Kimberly Poloson, not sure... this started out as a garden journal, so there are wonderful grid papers and lined papers with floral drawings already inside. I think I'll use it as an inspiration journal and fill it with whatever inspiration that I'd like :)
