The Things I Love

Family photos for us are an extreme rarity. It's next to impossible to get everyone together, dressed, looking in the direction of the camera and having a fairly decent expression on their face, am I right?
Imagine how surprised I was to set up this shot and get a fabulous photograph! 

What better way to compliment the picture then with a great scrapbook collection from Teresa Collins. This is her Hello My Name Is collection that can currently be found at Joann's Fabric and Craft Store. She specially designed some exclusive pieces that can only be found at Joann's. What a great collection!

I added some subtle texture to the background using one of her fabulous stencils and some translucent embossing paste. I think it really compliments the layout and adds dimension. And how about those WOOD dots?? How cool are those? I just LOVE them!

 I love the journaling snippets. These are an easy way for me to inject my thoughts on a layout when I don't necessarily have an actual story to include. These stickers have all the right sayings. The things I LOVE part is actually a 4x6 vertical card that is included in the 12x12 paper pack. I just cut it down to use that part. 

I really love how this layout turned out and can't wait to play some more with this collection. Thanks for stopping by!
