Finally Finished page

Do you ever do this?  Get new supplies and get really excited and just make something....anything.....and then it just sits there.....for months.  I'm sure you never do that!  Unfortunately, it happens to me sometimes.  In the fall, I got this new paper and I just loved the whole color combination for fall pages.  I loved the addition of Taken with Teal to brighten up those pages.  So....I decided to make a lovely scrapbook page.   I used my new shimmer paint to make my own shiny paint for the title, I made shimmer mist to spray the vanilla cardstock, I added a journaling spot under the photo mat - I was very pleased with it.   And, then.....there it sat....looking lovely and lonely.  It's not that I didn't have pictures for it....they just never made it to the page!  Until now....

Enter The Pink Elephant Scrapbook Challenge - to take a former page and make it over.  Now, I realize that many people were taking old layouts from years ago and making them over, but I decided to do something different (no surprise there...I know....I'm always doing something different!)  I decided that for this challenge, I would make over this layout and actually finish it!   Thus, I came up with this second page based on a sketch from Sketches 4 All website, where I am on the design team. 

Using the same paper and colors, I added a few leaves and several cropped 4X6 photos to the layout.

I took a little popsicle stick that says Savor the Moment and added it and really cropped down one 4X6 to fit in a little metal frame and finished it off with the same buttons and ribbon from the first page. 

And here it is....the finished layout with pictures!  Finally....:)
