Smile! You're 2! (Well, you were...)

Hey, friends!  Today we finally have some nice cool weather in Florida!  It's in the 60s!  Yeah!  It feels awesome out there.  Here's a page I created for one of our Saturday Steal challenges over at My Scraps and More last week.  I chose one of our members (Berta) to lift.  She used lots of triangles in her page, and I wanted to challenge myself to create something that was out of my comfort zone.  So here's what I came up's a birthday pic of my little Paige when she turned two.  She's 4.5 now...she was so little back then!

I continued using the Sketchbook collection from American Crafts...LOVE this line!  I added a bit of modeling paste to my background, followed by some different color ink splatters.  I also used a black pen to outline my paste and triangles.

I found these brads at Michael's...and they matched this line perfectly.

One of my favorite embellishments...rolled up twine...I don't know what I like this so much!

This sticky button was also a Michael's clearance find!

I cut the big 2 out of vellum on my Cameo...I need to use vellum more.  It's a wonderful way to add something fun to your pages.

I'm going to be really sad when I run out of this has been one of my all-time faves!

Thanks for visiting me today, and enjoy your Thursday!
