Milk and a Jelly Donut

click on photo, so you can see it!
Double lay outs are not easy for me to photogragh. They always come out wonky. Any tips would be welcome! Lily had her first visit to a donut shop on my birthday. We were supposed to go to the DMV, my license expired on that day, but when we drove into the parking lot and I saw the line wrapped around the building ten minutes prior to opening, I knew that wasn't going to work so we left and got donuts instead! I ended up making an appt. online and went in a week later. A little late.
I used the white Mr Huey mist from Studio Calico here, it reminds me of milk splashes. I love this product, it goes on like paint. I also used a doiley stamp set from SC.
I added a few cross stitches here and there to add to the homespun feel of this lay out.
One favorite thing (technique) that I always love on other scrapper's lay outs is when the title is a combo of fonts. So I used my fave Doodlebug loopy alphas and American Crafts Foam Thickers. Foam is my most favorite from the thickers, they are repositional and they don't fall off. I wonder if Doodlebug still makes the loopy letters? I was sad to see that Studio Calico did not continue the Addy Stickers that are near and dear to me. No new colors.

Adorable layout but it doesn't hold a candle to your little subject, Samantha!

Wow great page(s). I love all the little detail including the mixed fonts and the cross stitched xxx.

And I can't get over how much more fun was getting donuts over spending time at the DMV. How to turn a day around in one swift move.
