I Really Really Love Elle's Studio, Really.

Have you tried Elle's Studio? You won't be sorry, I think the tags add that extra something something to what I am working on. For this first lay out I used Full of Color Scalloped Tags .


For my journaling here, I wrote it out first and then used my sewing machine to make the lines.


Pretty chipboard butterflies from Maya Road, spritzed with Blue Hydrangea Maya Mist. I think that I have already told you that I adore the American Crafts Lullaby Foam Thickers. I just can't understand why they only come in 3 colors. (pink, yellow and grey)



Love the date and place strips, they are small and skinny, I love love the colors they come in.


My girls are infatuated with their older cousins. Pure adoration. The big girls love them as well. This is a photo from Easter 2009.





I used 2 different sets of Vintage Flashcards for this one. I think the number word flashcards are genius. All in one package, you get numbers 1-31, the possibilities are endless, they could represent a quantity, like how I used it. You could use one to represent a date, age, months of a baby, week in the life ...see, lots of good things!

If you haven't had the chance to click on over to the Elle's Studio Inspiration Gallery, I highly recommend it. Every month I am simply amazed by what Jenni, Laurie, Mel, Paige and Daniela create. Very talented girls.
