Going Simple ... and Other Good Advice from Friends

     What to do with those obnoxiously cute candid shots where the kids are bedecked in every color of clothing possible all at once? "Use this paper," my dear scrapbooking cohort Melinda says as she pulls out a perfectly coordinated sheet from her stash and hands it to me. Some people just have the eye, don't they? Melinda is hands-down the most efficient scrapbooker I know, and it's pretty obvious why. She just gets color.

     I found it really challenging to leave this page alone and let the multi-colored and adorable pattern come through, but a little simplicity never hurts, especially when it's out of our comfort zones.

     Thanks, Melinda, for the perfect piece of paper!

Materials used:
Patterned paper: Crate Paper, Stampin' Up (Play Date), October Afternoon (Thrift Store)
Sticker: Cosmo Cricket (Early Bird)
Bumblebee button: Joann Fabrics
Paper Flowers, Olive Green Felt, Sewing Machine :)

  1. Jessica, you just made my day! Great job keeping it simple, but still making it completely you. I am totally digging the flower and bumble bee combo, you rock girl!
