My layouts all look the same. Which I am actually okay with, I've found my "groove". But when you are just using the same layout over & over you can't expect to be thrilled with the results. Except that this time I was... I really like this page. I was so sad that the pictures weren't great (the quality is bad) and that because of the weather, everything was so gray. Ugh. Except that I found this gorgeous gray paper, and then everything turned out. There was a little distressing emergency when I tried to distress the chipboard that was already attached (doesn't look very good). Lesson learned: Un-Du was invented for a reason. Don't be lazy.
The rub-ons that I used are ancient. Like, 6 years old. There was other old stuff on the layout too.

L.o.v.e Miles' big grin in this picture. So I had to blow it up... big. There are some fabric patches sewn onto this page that are pretty old. And for once I used the cricut instead of relying on Thickers (love!).

I love this paper line. It's not new, but I love it. And I am starting to run out (uh-oh). It's called Wild Saffron & it seems to be perfect for everything I every sit down to scrapbook. Love it.
