I Love Us. *Scrap Within Reach*

When I finally accepted the fact that Keith was falling asleep on the sofa and there was no way we were going to keep watching "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (yes JJ, I still have the DVDs and I'm almost ready for the next season!), I decided to go downstairs and scrap a little. So, at 11 pm after watching a teenage girl killing demons, I came up with this:

I love it! You will notice that I have finally invested in Martha Stewart's butterfly punch since making this layout. I've been wanting to add butterflies to everything these days, perhaps to make up for the dreadful weather we've been having here. Since JJ isn't always around for me to borrow the punch from, I now have my own.

Speaking of JJ, the distressed/ripped/inked edging is a total influence of scrapping with her! She does this like no other and I decided to give it a go. JJ will also be happy to know that I used my Riptide Glimmer Mist on the big heart. Very cool!

Of course, the star of this layout is the paper. I used mostly Scrap Within Reach's "Afternoon Tea" collection, with a little "The Cottage" to break up the girly colour!

Patterned paper: Scrap Within Reach "Afternoon Tea" collection in Chantilly Cream, Spiced Plum and Raspberry Lace; Scrap Within Reach "The Cottage" collection in Whimsical;
Letter stickers: Scrap Within Reach "Afternoon Tea" collection;
Chipboard hearts: American Crafts; Heidi Swapp;
Date Sticker: Making Memories in Whimsy;
Spray: Tattered Angels' Glimmer Mist in Riptide;
Ribbon: Dollar store;
Punches: Martha Stewart;
Pen: Staedtler;
Ink: Nick Bantock in Van Dyke Brown;
Glitter glue: Ranger Stickles in Cotton candy;
Other: Fancy Pants pins in Sassy; Making Memories edge distresser; Carolee's Creations Ting a Ling paper clips in Love U;

Thanks for stopping by♥
