Medium Madness

I used the new Bo Bunny Love Shack line and the May featured kit from Life Preserver's Club to create this layout- and it is based on a challenge from Vintage Plum to use several different mediums on a page. The background was made using MM paint, shimmerz, and stickles- so much fun!

But more importantly this layout is very special because I used the ACTUAL fabric, trim, tulle, ribbon, and chenille that I used to handmake my daughter's dress for her first birthday! When I look at this page I feel like it really represents what I feel scrapbooking means to me- it captures the special feel of her first birthday, has journaling about the day, and has keepsakes incorporated into the page! I know she won't remember her party or wearing the dress or anything, but someday she look back on these photos and see what an absolutely beautiful baby she was on her birthday!
