So Youer and a Survey


I love this quote. Dr. Seuss is a wise man! 

This is a quote I used on a layout awhile back and I remember a specific comment from my friend Dora. She said something like "This is so youer!" I loved it. When the Individuality kit from SFTIO came to my door, I knew that I wanted to incorporate that fabulous phrase. It's unique. It's silly. And it's totally me!


I went the super clean and simple route with this layout because of all the patterns and colors already in the papers. A strip of paper here, a strip of paper there, some glam, journaling and there you have it. Love, love, LOVE the Indie Bloom collection from Basic Grey. They are usually pretty hit and miss with me but this collection is so colorful and fun. Loved the patterns and the chipboard shapes are pretty awesome. Love how the large chipboard florals help balance my page. 


These Thickers are called E'clair and I can see why. They look pretty yummy. Like a sugar cookie!


Close up of the chipboard. I cut out the flower shapes from the patterned paper and adhered to the chipboard just for fun.

And here is my journaling...


Now to move onto something a little bit different...

I've created a little survey, if you all don't mind contributing to it. I've had some vision and inspiration come to me and I just want to make sure my dreams aren't too big... and I want to make sure that what I'm planning and scheming will be something others will actually take part in and find interesting and worthwhile. :)  Thanks in advance for taking the survey! I appreciate your feedback.  Click here and thanks in advance!

What a beautiful layout, Melissa! I really love the combo of prints and colors, and you are so right....those big chipboard flowers really add great balance to your design. Love the punched border on the side, too.
