There's Just Something About Homemade!
To construct my layout, I chose 4 photos and blocked them together in a rectangle, framing them with the orange cardstock. The marquee shape is cut from Storybook at 5.25 (give or take as I also widened the shape on my Gypsy). Those cute knitting balls are from Country Life (don't you love when you find unexpected things in your cartridges!). I cut them at size 4. The letters in my page title are from Storybook as is the little owl. That little owl in Storybook is soorly underused. He's a cutie and just two layers, so he's super quick, too! Give him a big "Hoot!" and use him on your next layout or card. Both the title and the owl were cut at 1.75. I lightly inked most edges with coordinating inks using my trusty make-up sponges. Overall, I'm lovin' this layout! It's another "something special" in H.'s life that has been recorded and that makes me one happy mama. If it also lands me a spot on Miss Robyn's Design Team, well, "Hoot! Hoot!" I'd be super happy!
