Week 2 Nursery Rhymes

I used the banner from Nursery Rhymes and my Gypsy to make it as large as I needed for it to go from side to side of my 12 x 12 page. The gypsy is great for sizing cuts to match where you want them and if you are even remotely considering if it is worth it IT IS!!!!

Not alot of commentary on this layout this week I just wanted to show how great a page can be even if you use only one cut from a cartridge..... It is rare that I use only one embellishment on a page but my pictures are center stage on this one.. I hope you enjoy! And again if you are on the fence about if the gypsy is worth it trust me it is more than worth it...

I gotta rig me up something to take better pictures with ... laying them down and leaning over them is not the best plan any ideas you have for me would be greatly appreciated... also could someone tell me how to do the watermark so I can put my name on the picture without marring the photo?

Ok here we go

I was going to "feature" one cartridge but when I got to messin with this layout I wanted to use cuts from two cartridges. Nursery Rhymes is a great cart! I love all the baby things that are there along with a pretty awesome alphabet! A Child's Year will always been one of my favorites because of the heritage feel it has to it. I am working frantically to get these baby pictures done so I can move to her recent pictures.. Can you believe she is a year old already!!!! (well at this writing she is actually 16 months)Anyway back on topic! I love these sepia prints that I took when Livvie was only 5 days old! The purple paper really went well with the hue of the pictures. I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it!

This little piggy from Nursery Rhymes is the perfect accent to go with those cute little piggies !!!!

I used dark purple to cut the blackout of the cut then used a light purple for the actual cut out of the words.

The O is from the paper package I used it is Heidi Grace.

I have used this little girl with her buggy at least two times now I love it!

I absolutely love this layout I hope you enjoy it and I hope it inspires you to mix it up and use more than one cartridge per layout! The next layout I am going to share with you also uses Nursery Rhymes.. Stay tuned!
