You Are Simply Wonderful Layout | Pebbles, Inc

First things first...
congratulations goes to
I need your contact information so I can send you your prize!!!


I recently made a new friend. We met sometime ago online and when I knew I was going to be moving to Ohio, I contacted her to see if we would be living close to each other. It turned out that we are about 2 hours apart. We thought it would be fun to at least meet each other and then we realized that there is an Archivers halfway between us! We have met there twice now and spent the day scrapping and getting to know each other. It has quickly become something that I look forward to every month! During our most recent get together, I made the layout You Are Simply Wonderful. It took me several hours to put together. Sometimes I don't work to quickly when I am talking! LOL!!! I kept fiddling with it off and on the entire day; never quite happy with it. When I got home I added the machine stitching, more washi tape and the journaling. In the end, I really love how it turned out. It captures a rare, quiet moment of my niece coloring a picture of her family during a visit to our house in Illinois for Thanksgiving last year.

INSPIRATION | Photo Frame Hang Tags

The Front Porch Photo Frames are so fun and I had been wanting to use them on a project since the first time I saw them. I just couldn't find the "perfect" thing until I started this layout. I knew immediately that I wanted to incorporate them with these photos. The idea of framing one of the chalkboard chipboard pieces came to mind quite by accident as I was laying out all the embellishments and trying to decide what I wanted to add to the layout. I realized that if I trimmed the chipboard piece down a little, it would fit inside the photo frame! It then became the perfect title piece!
