News Anchor Hair / My Scraps & More

Hey there!  I'm sharing a fun layout today that I created for a challenge over at the My Scraps & More forums a few weeks ago.  I had so much fun making this one...mostly because the pictures make me smile :)

The challenge was to use the words "story" and "news" on a layout.  These pictures of Paige were just random, but her hair was the cutest.  It reminded me of a news anchor's hair...haha.  That helped create my title.  I used all Crate Paper for this....I believe it's mostly Notes and Things.  I had both of them scattered all over my desk and a lot of it coordinates, so I don't really remember which is which.

I LOVE this background paper and couldn't wait to use it.  I added a bit of gesso and gelatos around my big cluster to just to give it some interest.  I love the little typewriter, goes with my news theme :)

This stitched butterfly card came already easy to use! 

One of my favorite parts of the layout...using gold paint on the bottom half of this die cut!  And then I stitched through it with gold thread....whoever invented gold thread, gold glitter....I love this person!

I used one of the chipboard frames as a layering piece here with one of the kraft tags.  I backed it with white paper and stitched through it.  I added that cute little pink ampersand sticker.

I think this is one of my favorite layouts these just came together so easily and it just makes me smile looking at it :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
