A Note and a Layout

Hey everybody.  Firstly, I wanted to apologize for not posting for the past couple of weeks.  I'd fully intended to have my new Kit It Together Monday up this week and the remainder of my projects from March up last Monday.  However, life threw some curveballs and I've been dealing with that.  Those of you that know me at all through Two Peas or Studio Calico or just here at my blog, know that I have been in a long-distance relationship for the past three years.  A couple of weeks ago, that relationship came to a close and so I've been spending a lot of time with family and friends trying to begin the healing process and think about what comes next.

That said, I have done a few layouts the past couple of weeks and wanted to share one of my favorite recent ones with you today!

Lovely Little One

This is (yet ANOTHER) snapshot of my niece, Ellie.  I've taken in recent months to calling her "Little One", so this title worked really well in my mind.  I used a ton of the new American Crafts lines, primarily Dear Lizzy's Lucky Charm with some Pebbles Love You More thrown in for good measure.  Lucky Charm is by far and away my favorite Dear Lizzy line to date.

The twine at the bottom is from Lawn Fawn and is like no other twine I've ever experienced.  Seriously, it's that awesome.  It is an experience.  It's much heftier than twine you might find from say Doodlebug or Jillibean Soup (both of which I love dearly), and doesn't have as much give.  I'm absolutely in love with this particular twine.  I believe it's called Pink Lemonade.  It's absolutely delicious.

The "Lovely" part of the title is actually a Thicker from the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection.  I love how it adds some dimension and is a solid word.  These chipboard Thickers that were released with this line are incredible.
Supplies:  patterned paper - American Crafts, Pebbles; letter stickers - American Crafts, October Afternoon;  stickers, flair badge, and tag - American Crafts; twine - Lawn Fawn
In other scrappy related news, I just ordered a Silhouette Cameo which should be arriving tomorrow, so I'm rally looking forward to playing around with that!
Thanks for stopping by!
