Amazing

First of all I wanted to apologize to all of you who follow my blog for not posting for a little while. My son got obsessed with Harry Potter and wanted to see all the movies in the past couple of weeks. Since I'm a big Harry Potter fan and my son thought he would be scared to watch them alone we sat together and saw movies 1-7. Needless to say, that took away most of my nights and therefore I didn't scrapbook. I have to say that it was really worth it to spend time with my son watching those beloved movies. I was so happy I was able to share that experience together with him. I can't wait to take him to the theater to see the second part of the last movie. I can't wait for him to find out if Harry lives or dies.


Now getting back to scrapbooking. I designed a layout today based on a sketch by Nadia Cannizzo. She is a fantastic scrapbooker and was very kind to offer me some great advice in the past couple of weeks. I admire all her work and how much time and effort she puts into everything she does. Her current sketch challenge on her blog Once Upon a Sketch is below. The journaling criteria for this challenge is to journal about a female. It could be anyone, mother, daughter, friend, etc. I decided to make this layout about my daughter. I finally used these amazing fairtytale papers by Graphic 45. I bought these papers but never got a chance to use them before. I finally got them out and did all the finicky cutting that it allows me to do. The journaling card says:
         "Everyone says you look like a fairy....
                    You say you look like a princess....
                          I say you are one of a kind....
                                      Just amazing!!"

I'm also using this layout for a challenge on Bird is the Word. The challenge this month is to use the word "Amazing" on your title or journaling in your layout. I used "Amazing" in both the title and  the journaling because fit the layout perfectly.

Below are a few close-ups of my layout, just scroll down!!
