Mission 24 and Summertime Scrappin...


For Mission 24 this week over at Mission to Create, the five concepts we were to use in our layout were, gingham patterned paper, the colour purple, make a banner, pop dot your photos and stitching. I used 4 of the 5 concepts in mine. I had to pull out some old photos of Emily to use though. She's almost 2 years old in these photos. I'm in the mood to scrap with bright and fun colours these days so I thought to myself, hey, there's no rules to having to stick to current photos! Even though I've probably scrapped these photos before in 2000, my style has totally changed and the new lines that keep coming out are just too irresistible to pass up! I love some of the "cutesy" die cuts that are available these days but for some reason always feel that a lot of the  Sassafras and October Afternoon lines are more suited for younger layouts. Guess this is another "box" I might have to break out of one of these days too! lol Thanks for stopping by!
