I'm more than lucky to have a simply amazing LSS in the form of Scrapabilly who stocks pretty much everything I love, but I did find a few sheets here and there in the Scrappies shop, as well as matching embellies, that I hadn't yet got my hands on and to say I was thilled to say that they had My Story by My Mind's Eye is a bit of an exaggeration! I scooped up everything they had. :-)
Almost all of my scrapping these days is based on kits - either the monthly Scrapabilly kit or my Counterfeit Kit Challenge kits - but this time around, I decided to just get out the papers and extras and have fun scrapping with no specific agenda in mind. Just for fun.
I love the rich pinks, the hit of gold and the soft creamy backgrounds as well as those gorgeous roses. Fitting to the name of the collection and all that pink, it of course seemed perfect for a layout about me.
I fussy cut some of the banners out of the full sheet paper to hang across the top
Which provided the perfect space to fill with my gold title as well as lines to use for journalling
And of course, I had to include some PL cards even though I'm not (yet) doing PL. I keep telling myself that I'm going to start in January - maybe, maybe! Everything seemed to layer up really well and the heart opening seemed perfect to highlight that "today". Using all the same collection meant I didn't even have to think about what went where - almost!
And then it was finished. And I was happy. Success.
