Scrapbooksteals Coral 6

Its another week and another Mid-Week Mojo. Nothing like putting this one off until the last possible minute. I wanted to take some inspiration from Shimelle's Scrapbook Remix, so I decided to play with the gorgeous floral print from Echo Park Paper's For the Record 2.

 I have been eyeing it for awhile and just didn't feel like I had the right photos for it. These photos of our adventures to get Grandpa and the kids on Mother Goose's lap worked well so I went for it.

Yes, I know you can't actually see Mother Goose in the photos ... that's part of the story I tell with this layout.  Mother Goose's lap wasn't particularly good for sitting, in fact you pretty much had to work to stay on her lap.  So in all of our efforts to get everyone up there, we never caught a photo that made it clear they were on Mother Goose's lap!

I used my Roller Rink kit on this layout, but I ended up really pulling out a lot of the FTR2 papers.  There is some Pebbles paper in there and I used some washi to create another element, but the bulk is FTR2.  I layered up cut apart pieces from the cut apart sheet from FTR2 on both sides of the photos, added enamel dots, some stamping and, some very word stickers and labels (Echo Park and My Minds Eye).  I used Kiwi Lane Templates to cut the bracket shapes - sometimes that's SO much easier than using my Cameo.

I'm really happy with how this all came together!
