New Look???

How do you like my blog design so far?

It's been more than a year since I last changed it. I was motivated by Becky's post over at Nook's Message Board. I felt so guilty for forgetting about it. Yesterday, I finally did it and changed the design a bit. This is the least I can do for this week since I haven't scrapped for 5 days now.

I hope you like it! If for any reason you see any glitch please let me know. Thanks!

Now, I'm sharing another layout that I did using My Scrapbook Nook's May kit featuring October Afternoon's Fly a Kite. The papers here are perfect for outdoor photos. I have used a recent photo of Hannah taken a few weeks back when we went to a private resort to celebrate her 2nd birthday.

Patterned Papers: October Afternoon's Fly a Kite
Alpha: AC Thickers Umbrealla and October Afternoon's Alpha Stickers
Ribbons: SEI
Wild Card: October Afternoon

Photobucket

I really did a lot of experimenting here and tried not to be so structured. It was really fun embellishing this page using the SEI ribbons that came with the kit. I initially sewed on the mesh polka dot ribbon tightly to create some ruffles. I also painted it with yellow to blend it with the colors from the patterned papers. Then I just wrapped around it with the pink ribbon.

It was different, kinda messy,really fun and I liked the final outcome!
