I printed out these photos but never could decide whether I
liked the combination or wanted to do individual photos...

I found this title on the Silhouette website and decided
it would be perfect with the Indie Chic and Nostalgia
collections from My Mind's Eye.  I actually had them
all set aside for this layout when I decided to use it for the
July Sketch that Keri Babbitt did for MME. 
I love her style and the sketch was awesome!
Here is the link to that post:

Poor Sofia, her birthday lands right in the middle of
Spring Break and I still haven't learned my lesson for
planning early or late.  We had sent out invites for a
rocker girl party, started buying supplies and making plans
& the only people who could come were our cousins & 1 friend.

Sadly, it wasn't quite the party Fia had in mind...
sooooo we decided to postpone a big party for a year,
(at least a week early!) & we bribed her with a trip to ToysRUs,
dinner at her favorite restaurant (i.e. cheese dip) and the
biggest cupcake she could find from Whole Foods...
bribery works, and I am so not above it!

The three things I am obsessed with right now are title
and shapes using the negative from the Silhouette or punch,
banners, and stitching on my sewing machine...
I think I got a little carried away with the stitching on this layout
but it is such a great way to finish off the edge or combine
two elements to me, I can't help myself! 
Used them all here!  Yay!


  1. Thanks so much for jumping right in with my MME sketch, Jenni! :) Love the little banner, and YES, all the stitching, plus of course the gorgeous title. Great use of the sketch, love what you've done with it!
