Always take time . . .

In one of my Kits from Scrapbook Heaven came the paper from Bella Blvd - Flirty - Bits a Bella , which had this saying on it "Always take time to play every single day!"  I knew I had to use that saying on a layout of my oldest son and Izzy.  She adores him, will do anything he asks, and he is her favorite person. 

To start with I made my own white acrylic paint mist - a little bit of white acrylic paint and water added to a small spray bottle.  I sprayed this onto the Kraft paper and used my heat gun to speed up the drying process.  I have the cutting directions listed below.

I made my own filmstrip in Adobe Photoshop, inserted and sized my pictures and printed them out on 8 1/2x11 photo paper after changing them to black and white.

I made the same layout for my album but I used alphabet stickers for the saying.  My Kraft journal strip cut at 1 1/2x 12

Thanks for stopping by.
