Memory Makers Blog Hop: Favorite Treat!

by Lain Ehmann on March 8, 2011

Welcome to another wonderful installment of the Memory Makers blog hop! This month, we’re talking about our favorite treats. I’ve been trying to cut down on the treats I CONSUME, so I thought I’d focus on a fat- and calorie-free treat:

My iPad! I was lucky enough to win an iPad (I actually won THREE, but that’s another story!). Now, I’m addicted. I love my iPad. It’s so fun to play on, read email, cruise the Internet… you name it. And it has absolutely no calories! Gotta love that. :)

As most of my layouts, this one came together very easily. I started with the 4×76 photo, and knew I wanted to accent with orange to pull the orange out in the photos.

The next step was to find patterned paper that would pull in the orange, but add another color, too. This Scenic Route paper was perfect.

Then I grabbed the orange Doodlebug frill, and the American Crafts letter sticker (I wish the letters were a little more orange and less sherbet-y, but they’ll do!).

After that, I added the journaling strips. And then… something had to be added. I started with the rhinestones (from KaiserCrafts), but something was still missing. An arrow! An arrow always makes things better, and I just so happened to have this one sitting on my desk — really. Once I had it on there, I was like, “Yah, mon, I’m done!”

And that was that.

:)

Now, I just so happen to be the caboose on this here blog train, so now you can hop over to the Memory Makers blog to finish things off!

Thanks for stopping by!
