Happy Labor Day Monday!

I have to laugh at myself b/c I am still getting used to the new look of my blog every time I come here. I am not sure if anyone noticed before that my old header still said 2009! Notice this header is neutral so I don't have to change it next year if I don't want to or find time to is more like it!

Here is a layout I did for Webster's Pages September Guest Designer inspiration. We got to browse Christine Middlecamp's blog for inspiration, which of course is not hard! I love how she layers and layers her embellishments so that is what I tried to achieve in this layout. Everything is Webster's except the metal frame & tag (Tim Holtz).

These tiny rosettes were so easy! I used my scraps from the bloomers (when you cut them down sometimes there are pieces of fabric left over) so I just tied them in loose knots. Then, I took my Shimmerz spritz and took the top out of the bottle and just let some drip right on the fabric. I realized after I glued them to the paper I wanted them to be shimmery and I didn't want to spray the entire page.
