Blissfully Unaware

Here's my second layout with the November kit from from Crazy Daisy Kits. I just love all the great fall colours and products in this kit. If you haven't got yours yet, don't wait - these kits routinely sell-out.

Ever have one of those papers that you love both sides almost equally? And then of course, you've only got one sheet, right? Happens to me all the time. Usually it's because I didn't think to look at both sides when I was at the store. Well, the main paper in this layout was one of those papers for me - I really loved both sides. So what's a girl to do? I cut a circle out of the middle and flipped it over! I placed another coordinating paper behind them both, for a little added contrast, and to help keep everything together.

Yes, that is my son in the background, coming at my daughter at full speed. With a stick in his hand. I'm not sure what he had in mind, but as soon as I snapped the photo, I grabbed the baby and had a few words with the boy... *sigh*

I already had this title in mind when I was editing my photos, so I was delighted to find this "Bliss" transparency in the kit - it was perfect as part of my title!

I used one of the Crate Paper journaling stickers from the kit, and I distressed the edges a little, to go more with the look of my page. I also added some pop dots, because it seemed hidden next to all the flowers. The added height was just what it needed.

grey flowers - Petaloo
journaling sticker - Crate Paper

Other Supplies:

What a gorgeous layout and the photos are beautiful. I love how you kept the layout so precious even though you had to protect your young subject. This kit is beautiful.
