I kept my papers more square and tweaked up the embellishments to fit my ideas and I think it turned out awesome. I love the colors of Heyday and it coordinated well with some of the leftover pieces from my Summer of '69 kit. I have to admit though my favorite part is the stamp at the bottom of the page.

With myself and two little ladies living in this house, I know it will get TONS of use.
I think I'm finding my scrapping style more and more these last few weeks and I think in the near future I"ll write up a blog post about what I'm learning and where I'm learning it from. I've found some amazing resources on the web and they are really helping me think about layout structure. Its so nice to feel like my layouts actually come together as they do for a reason, not just by chance.
