Mine Would Be You

Hey there happy Sunday!! Sarah here and I wanted to share a layout with you, using the brand new and gorgeous new line "Mad Tea Party!" These papers are so beautiful, the colors, the roses, everything is amazing. As soon as I saw the patterned paper with the roses on it, I could not WAIT to start fussy cutting lol! The inspiration I used for this layout came from a new song that I love by Blake Shelton, called "Mine Would Be You." I love this song! It makes you think about all the little things that you love about someone, good things and even difficult times. That's what life is about, that is what it is made of. All the things that make us who we are. A messy mix of good and bad and trials and beautiful and difficult and busy and frustrations and blessings and what a wild ride it is! My favorite line of the song is "What's the greatest chapter in your book?" That's the line I based my page on, and my favorite chapter is my beloved boys.

To create the journaling part, I combined two new sets of stamps from Marion's new products, one is alphabets and one is a really cool mixture of elements that you can use to create your own "chalkboard art" like line breaks and things of that nature. This was so fun! I'll admit I was scared of them at first, but I just got out a scratch piece of paper and started playing and it is really neat!  Yes, my letters and things are crooked, and I'm sorry. But the important thing is that you can read it and totally get the point right? I like to call it a fancy mess, kind of like me haha!
Another new stamp I used from the new sets was this darling little butterfly! I heat embossed them with light pink powder. They have a lot of pretty details that make them look so dainty, something I know my boys will love (haha!!)

I used an older picture, but I don't scrap chronologically, I like to use pictures that tug at my heart strings and will trigger a special memory or a tricky time we were in at that moment.

Lots of fussy cutting and tucking ;) I used some vintage book paper to go along with my book and chapter theme, but I wanted to add some pink so I sprayed it down with the new Blush Color Shine by Heidi Swapp. I was a little nervous at first because it's old paper but it took it like a champ and it looks very shimmery and pretty!
I hope I inspired you today! If you haven't already, check out the new Mad Tea Party Line and Marion's new stamps!!  They are so so beautiful! Have an amazing day!
Love, Sarah
