My favorite colors to work with are pinks, and soft "shabby" colors - BUT I couldn't resist this beautiful new collection of papers and embellishments I found at the weekend at Target. The Eliza collection caught my eye with it's bright, bold colors and sweet glittery embellishments. I love layering, so the die-cut flowers were perfect for making dimensional flowers. I just used foam mounting tape between each layer. I also love ladybugs - I don't know why, I just think they are cute so of course, when I noticed the tiny ladybug accents, I knew this collection was coming home with me. I played last night and came up with this single page scrapbook layout with a photo of my Niece and I. All the decorative elements on this page came from the Eliza collection and I cut the brown scroll with my Cricut and the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.
To finish off this post, some fun random Ladybug facts for you...
- There are nearly 5,000 different kinds of ladybugs worldwide
- Ladybugs chew from side to side and not up and down like humans do
- The spots on a ladybug fade as the ladybug gets older
- If you squeeze a ladybug it will bite you, but the bite won't hurt
If you find a ladybug in your house in the winter - you will have good luck
