Baby card

I haven't been doing much real scrapping recently, but I have made a few cards, and I keep sending them away before I remember to photograph them. This one is going to a soon-to-be-born little bundle in New Zealand. The striped paper is the wrapping paper I used on the gift.

I also did a layout using a rare photo of me and Ron, based on a challenge at Create My Keepsake to do a love page using no red and no hearts. I sprayed Maya Mist over one of Heidi Swapp's masks for the background. I love to use new techniques, but whenever I try to get artsy my pages end up looking "chumpy," to use my friend Maureen's word. I should probably stick to the simpler style.

I love that card! What a great idea to use the wrapping paper. Thrifty AND creative!

You are too hard on yourself. Your layout is great, too. I never, ever use new techniques so I envy anyone who can do that without making a mess of things!

Vsiting off of Jelly Belly's blog, for some reason I couldn;t leave a comment on her site.

Anyway, I love this layout I have all these elements and am definetly scraplifting this one.

Happy Tuesday!
