Scrapbooking!

Hi guys! I've been SUPER slack getting on here to blog, or even to photograph my cards/layouts.... 
I haven't even been crafting much!
I did scrapbook a photo I printed the other night though -
 I started by going through my piles of 6x6 patterned paper pads, and came up with the colours in using the EPP - Sweet Girl Collection. For the long pink piece, I trimmed two pieces and joined them together, as I wanted them to peek behind my 6x4 photo. The join is behind the photo, so I didn't need to worry too much about making everything line up perfectly! As usual, I doodled around the edges, using my BH PL Journalling marker, as it has a super fine nib!
I have a box filled with lovely embellishments, including stickers, stamps and of course wooden flourishes, so I grabbed my box out, and went digging through it.... 
In this corner, I made up the sentiment, using JIL Soup Stamps - HelloKaisercraft mini alpha stickers, and a big JIL Wise Words - Friends. I then trimmed out some left over patterned paper, from EPP - Sweet Girl and attached them in staggered lengths. I added a Studio Calico cork arrow, a sticker from MME - Cut & Paste Tiny word stickers, and a speech bubble from October Afternoon. The last addition to this little cluster was a SC Wood Veneer Heart.   
Now, I had some space to fill below the photo, and I wanted to leave it less embellished than the bottom corner, so, I whipped out my washi tapes, and layered some black chevron (not currently in store, but contact Michelle, to see if she can get more in!) I attached it onto some light aqua card stock, and trimmed it down, so it looked like an arrow. I then added a Date sticker, from  MME Cute & Paste, and wrote the date of the photo on to it. I attached it below the washi, and then attached another Studio Calico Arrow, and wood veneer heart. At the end of the washi tape, I added a Pink Paislee Mistable Star, which I'd inked up in pink, and a circle label from Sn@p Life Labels, which I'd stamped an Elle's Studio "smile" stamp on to. I finished off the entire layout with a smattering of sequins (to fill some of the white space)
