the small things…

I am having so much fun with Cosmo Cricket’s Odds & Ends line!  I used it (exclusively) on my latest 8 1/2” x 11” layout. 

small_thing_layoutI think I mentioned a while back that I’d kind of gotten away from this size of layout, but the last few months I’ve made several.  I feel like I’m “coming home” in a sense – I was really reluctant to ever jump the 8 1/2” ship and get on board the 12” x 12” party.  But now I can say I’m glad I tried it – and now I love working with both sizes and incorporating many sizes in our family scrapbooks.  small_thing_layout_detail1

I cut a bunch of these fun circle shapes from one of the patterned papers and used them as embellishments on my layout.


Of course I had to add machine stitching and some buttons as well. :)


It’s true – it is HARD to get all four of my kids to cooperate with me and actually hold still and look at the camera at the same time.  I used to think when they got older they’d be more cooperative…not so much.  Now it seems one (or more) gets an attitude or just plain doesn’t want a photo.  So when they’ll hold still, look at the camera, and even smile – now that’s a good day in my book…and just like the layout says – I’m going to cherish the small things…like getting all four kids in a photo! :o)
