a layout from my daughter's scrapbook-in-progress

I recently completed a two-page layout for my daughter's scrapbook and I think it's one of my absolute favorites.  It's a bit more complicated than I usually create, but it actually came together really very well and I'm just so pleased.  This is my sweet girl and her best friend at a park playdate in 2009, when they were both just over a year old:


This layout was created with the Retro Glam collection by We R Memory Keepers, bought from Scrapbook Steals.  I love this collection, and these pictures were perfect for it. 


I'm a pretty plain and simple scrapper, so the design of this collection really worked well in helping me bring it up a level without making me uncomfortable with "product vomit" on the page.  :)


I love this page - I used ribbon from my stash that I found at Hobby Lobby and Michael's, and the leather flowers are also from Hobby Lobby; it was a set that I happened to find in the clearance section one day.  I strung the letters on craft thread and separated each word with an amethyst Swarovski crystal bead; I wish you could see them better!
