A Box of Books

While at Paper Maze on Saturday I purchased the crop kit for June. As I mentioned yesterday I decided to use it to make a layout of Emily at 20 months showing how she used to tip all the books out of the box and get it it to read!

This page was designed by Vanessa and uses papers from October Afternoon's Sasparilla Collection (Rustler, Wagon Train, Stagecoach, Tumbleweed and Pony Express)
Bazzill in Berrylicious, Natural and Indigo
Blue buttons ( I added some red and cream ones)
Cherry Red Bakers Twine (I added some Navy)
and some Natural Ribbon.

Some close up photos

I used one of the buttons to centre my windmill rather than a paper rose.

I used my Stampin' Up punch to create my bunting, but followed Vanessa's method of stringing the flags together.

I used Basic Grey's PB&J letter stickers as did Vanessa, with some letters created with spare papers and a Cuttlebug alphabet die set.

Here is Vanessa's original, please see the Papermaze blog - 'Scrap, Paper, Scissors' for more details - There is a link in my sidebar.

Here are the original photos of Emily, taken in 1993 at home. She looks amazed at the news in this Lego catalogue!

Love these pictures, although they are scanned in from the original negatives so the quality is not brilliant, but the memory is preserved.
Thanks for looking.
