Since I've been on a roll with pages, I took some time to do a layout today using my yummy new SU! designer paper "Outlaw." It does have a western flair, but you don't have to limit yourself to western themed pages, I didn't!
You may remember a few of these pictures from a frame I did earlier this year. That was the purpose of these photos, and it was such a challenge to get Sydney to stay still and smile, not to mention LOOK at the camera! *sheesh* Natalie was just a bit fidigity and several of her pictures were blurry, and she doesn't always "smile on command." That experience makes me REALLY appreciate the pros!!!
I totally LOVE the On-board Lowercase Simon Alphabet. It is way easy to cover with paper and stamp on. I like to smear craft ink on them too...Who am I kidding? I like to smear craft ink on EVERYTHING! ;)
I also used my Scallop punch for the first time -- love it too! It's fun to add the little punched circles around your "petals," and yes I smeared craft ink on it too! Another technique I used was rock-n-roll. The smile stamp was inked in Mellow Moss and then I "rock-n-rolled" the edges of the stamp with chocolate chip ink before stamping. You can do it a lot, or just a little like mine!
