Interview With M


On our way back from Norfolk I asked M a few questions about our little getaway. It went more less like this:

Me: M, did you have a great time?
Jovie: Nope.
Me: M, did you like all the places we went to?
Jovie: Nope.
Me: M, you enjoy our little outing?
Jovie: Nope.
Me: M, can you duct tape Jovie so that you can answer my questions?
Jovie: Nope.
M: (Lotsa giggles)
Me: Jovie, you want duct tape?
Jovie: Yup.

That kid’s annoying! No wonder babies and toddlers were made to be cute!

Today’s layout is brought to you by Pebbles and American Crafts. If you don’t know, Pebbles is a sister company of AC. This has been wonderful for me because not only have I been receiving plenty of fun Pebbles goodies for all sorts of projects I have also received some American Crafts cuteness for this last assignment: Pebbles and AC swap, which basically meant we had to use both products on a project.

I went with a clean and simple design for this page because I want to highlight the photo. I LOVE this photo of M. I didn’t think it’d turn out this great but it did. I also love this picture because it’s the last decent piece that my now dead Canon took.

It took me a while to decide on which pieces to use but after much thought (it takes me longer to create a CAS layout sometimes since I have to really decide which items to use) I settled with those on the page. You can find the details on Pebbles’ blog AND also enter their giveaway. Who doesn’t want FREE Pebbles and AC goodies?

Here’s a little tip: When doing a simple layout select paper that really showcase the photo. For mine a dark base wouldn’t work and anything too colorful/bright would shadow the photo. Since the photo has a soft feel, I tried to find a base paper that would portray that feel also. For the embellishments, go for slick/simple but powerful — the power can come from color or shape. I used a brighter yellow butterfly and a few colorful buttons and brad.

I hope you’re enjoying your weekend!! I am because I JUST finished grading my classes! I have a few weeks off before my one summer class starts. Whoohoo!!!
