Jillibean Bean Soup: A Layout and A Card

Hello! *cough*cough....I'm sorry this blog is collecting dust over the past weeks. This time, I have a good reason for my disappearing act because I was busy planning for Abby's first birthday party. It took a lot of effort and time but it was all worth it seeing all the happy faces at the party. Abby seemed to enjoyed all the attention she had on that day despite not feeling well. Alex (Josie's husband) was kind enough to be our photographer for the night and he captured some really great shots at the party which I will share here soon. For now, I will share some of my projects that were posted on the Jillibean Soup blog.

I hardly scrap about myself so when Sharon challenged us to make a layout of ourselves, I jumped on the band wagon but it took me a month to complete it. With my jam packed schedule back in December, you can't really blame me right? Lol.

I kinda love layering these days and here you can see I did some layering using journaling tag, a piece of patterned paper and a kraft tag. If you followed me long enough, you will know by now how much I love butterfly and that explains the butterfly banner on top of the photo.

Another card featuring polaroid frame that I cut out from the Soup Staples II paper called Yellow Salt. Then I backed up the frame with a piece of graph paper, embellished it with a sentiment from soup labels, twine and felt blossom. easy card in 15 minutes!

The title on the journaling card is just perfect to create a love themed card. With some hearts sticker and a sentiment, you are ready to put a smile on your loved one's face.

Alrighty, it's time to go and you shall me soon with some photos of Abby's birthday party.
