Sponsor: Designs by Krista

Hello! Penny #2 here with another wonderful kit to share with you. The vibrant colors that make up the collections from Designs by Krista is evident in this month’s digital kit, Tweet. I have tried to give you a variety of pages using this extremely versatile product. In this layout you see a baby me! My parents divorced when I was a really little girl and I was raised by my dad. Consequently, I have very few photos of myself as a child and this is the only baby pic I have of me. It looks to me like I was a happy baby! This simple layout is composed of just two papers and one element (the ribbon wrap) for a quick to complete scrapbook page.

I think the bright pink & orange compliment these fancy cars that my husband and daughter are posing by. I think the owners were pretty brave just parking them on the streets! In this layout, I took a frame and made it gigantic and used it sort of as a bulletin board for the photos. I also duplicated the photos and tilted them to look like a stack. Using the opposite strategy, I shrinked and used Krista’s stitching to tack down the little journaling pieces.

Here are a couple of photos of my friend’s son in his clarinet lesson. For this layout, I used the torn paper blown up large enough to only show one edge and letting one of the papers peek out from underneath. The font I used for the title is Impact and I just added a white stroke to the edge to make it into a sticker.

And in this final layout, I have a pic of my very patient DH leaning on a tree waiting for me. I know it drives him a little crazy that I love to take pictures of flower blooms, but he is really sweet about it! (Thanks honey!) The branch element on the left side of the page originally was an “L” shape with a horizontal bottom branch. I cut this part off and I think it give a fun border to the layout. Thanks for checking out my pages and visit the Designs by Krista shop to see more cute collections. Happy scrapping!
