so happy together

Full Disclosure...this layout was created, photographed and uploaded in 20 minutes. I say that for a few reasons. One, it can be done. Two, it helps if you begin with the thought that this must happen quickly. And three, I used a printable I designed so you can do this, too!

I designed a printable that could be used in so many different ways. In Project Life, as a gift bag tag, on a card, in a mini book. I have a feeling these tags will be used in quite a few more projects in the next little bit. And I also finally used a sheet of paper that I had been hoarding for YEARS. Why do we do that? At one time, ledger paper was the hottest thing going but I was afraid to use it. Well, it just seemed perfect for this.

I've had this photo on my memo board in my craft space since Easter 2011. Since I had just minutes to create a layout, I decided to finally scrap this photo. Won't our kids and grandkids {if we're so lucky} think we're crazy to photograph our feet? Guess what, I would love to have photos of my Grandparents and their favorite shoes of the moment. I still love those ballet slippers, by the way.

See where the embellishments are all clustered? It's because when I took the photo, there was a whole lot of Gordon's legs overtaking the photo. By clustering everything in that spot, it kind of puts the focus back on our shoes.

I used my scallop punch for "the perfect pair" and a bit of the green was still showing, so I trimmed it off and used it anyway, but the round tags are sized so that you can use your 2" round punch.
