Capturing Life Today

Hi everyone. I have a fun layout to share with you using the September Clique Kit, Moon Child! I've been playing with my stamps and spray mists. I saw this sketch on Creative Scrapper's blog, I immediately wanted to give it a try. Especially since I had a 4x6 photo that I wanted to scrap, but didn't know what design I wanted to use. Sometimes, it can be tricky scrapping a 4x6 photo onto an 8 1/2"x11" layout.

I used the arrow stamps by Precious Remembrance Shop to create a fun background for my layout. Isn't it fun. I love Teal! It's my favorite color. Also, I had a few scraps left over from the exclusive paper from this month's kit and decided to use them. Sometimes, when I love a certain paper, I have a hard time throwing away the scraps. So... I hoard them. Hey, there's no shame in that. Right?!

For fun, I added the big tag in the background that I had from my stash. And I used the polka dot paper that I had from my stash since Cooper is a Dalmatian with very few spots, I decided to add a few spots to the layout. I hand-cut the star and sentimental journaling from patterned paper.
