A Spring Spread

Honest moment—the first time I saw the Ice Cream Parlor Designer Series Paper and the coordinating Ribbon and Button pack, I was less than enthusiastic. Not really sure why. . . maybe a little too bright or something like that? For whatever reason, they just weren’t my favorite Sale-A-Bration products this year.

Think again!

Phoebe came over to visit a few days ago, and she was in a “posey” mood, willing—and even wanting—to strike a few model poses for the camera. Those moments don’t come along very often, so I grabbed my camera and started shooting.

When it was time to scrapbook these adorable pictures, the Ice Cream Parlor products were perfect! The playful colors and accents worked great on this page about my youngest little granddaughter! I had so much fun playing with these products, that I decided I’m going to have to do a spread for each granddaughter, and maybe make a little album!

As an aside, I have to tell you that I ventured outside my box! I normally would NEVER cut photos in different shapes . . . squares, rectangles, that’s about the extent of my picture-cutting adventures! It was almost liberating to punch and play with these fun little photos. It’s certainly in keeping with the lively, fresh feel of the page!

I’m thinking another reason I’ve grown so fond of these particular Sale-A-Bration products is because I’m so ready for color in my life! I’m tired of the gray drab of winter and ready to embrace spring—and these are definitely spring colors!
