Something else I did here was cut-up the branch from the upper left hand corner of Sass's "In Love" paper from the Sass kit. I needed it on the other side of my page, so i flipped it and glued it down in the lower right hand corner of my page. When I glued it down, I just used a little adhesive. And then I curled up the edges of the butterfly and leaves, etc. to give the page some more dimension. See what I mean:
To finish up the page i added some Woodland Whimsy chipboard (and added stitching behind the birdy), a hand-cut frame from the "Remember Me" paper on pop dots (yes, I use these frames on a ton of my stuff), a couple layered Chatterbox butterfly embellies. My pix, a fun mixed-up title, and of course some journaling added up to one meaningful yummy page.
Thanks for stopping by today. Make sure you check back soon when I show you a little magazine inspiration for next month's ROCKIN June kit!
**edited to add. leave me a comment about something that makes you happy and I'll enter your name in a little rak of scrappy goodness from me to you. I'll draw a name at 5pm ET on Friday. Good luck!

As soon as I received my Mosh Posh package I started cutting up the wonderful Sassafras Lass Vintage Yummy paper. You know the one, the one with those darling little frames all over. So, I had this neat little pile of frames. Now what? Pretty quick I envisioned this little ledge shelf with frames running across it. So, I started arranging the frames on the top of the paper with the Sass edge as my "shelf" To take that shelf-idea further, I adhered stuff with my ever trusty pop dots. See, how cute is this?:
I finished up the page with some hand-cut flowers from the Lily Bee paper in the lower left hand corner. I topped that with some CBX felt flowers. Added my pix and a little more Sass-lovin. Now, that my scissors have had their workout, it was time to tell the story. I tucked my journaling on a JB card behind the page that pulls "out" with a flower I put together with a Sass Paper Whimsy and Sass chipboard. The journaling says: "It's no secret. There are days I wonder if I can keep at it. Most days really. My days are filled with pulling kids out of the dishwasher, repairing the broken gate on the stairs (yet again), and rescuing Sullivan from the grip of Sassy. But then, mouth full of lunch, Sullivan throws me a big old kiss, Muah! I think I'll make it."
Just a little snapshot of how I put this page together AND a look at this crazy life of mine. Thanks for stopping by. Leave me a comment about your crazy life and I'll enter your name in a drawing for a little package of scrappy goodness courtesy of little old me. I'll draw a name on Friday at 5ET. See you next time!
