How GORGEOUS are the Basic Grey Indian Summer papers???  One of my kits in the October mailing from The Scrap Room had a selection of goodies from this line and I have been dying to use them on one of Rebecca's pages!!!  I had some pictures of her hanging over the side of her walker to pick up a toy and some how they just suited the bright and bold colours of the papers (cause she is sooo bright and BOLD)!!!

When she was smaller she used to bomb around in her walker like a race car driver and if she dropped the toy she was carrying she didn't bother to wait for us to get it, she would just hook one foot in the side of the walker and dangle out til she got it......OH THE HORROR!!!!!  Used to give us nightmares.......but strangely enough she never fell out and hurt herself!!!  She is one baby who has NO FEAR!!!!

I used two sheets of paper for this layout and tore and inked both (my favourite techniques) and used both sheets on each side.  I mounted the photos on some pink card stock and laid them at angles on the pages (can never lay photos straight!!!!).  I added some buttons and felties as well as a bit of string to the one side....somehow ribbon didn't look right!!!  I used foil alphas that came with the kit and mounted them in different ways to add a bit of character to the page!!!

Thanks for looking!!!!
