Page 2 For Today

A 2nd scrapbook page for today.  This time using Shimelle's challenge #9 Take Your Pick, where you can follow the rules for any old closed challenge.  I was really pleased about this as I'd previously made up a page for her Starting Points challenge and then not been able to find a photo to go with it.  Probably this was down to the overdose of pink from the Crate Paper Pretty Party and American Crafts Daydreams papers I'd used.  I dug it out anyway and,  having been in scrapbook mode for a few days, found something to use on it straight away.
These cute pictures had recently come down from a multi frame on the wall, which I decided had seen better days.  They were girly enough to go with all the pink and strawberries I'd chosen, but I felt there needed to be a bit of yellow on the page to really tie it in with the pictures.  A bit of punched and cut up MME Dolled Up did the job.
Other supplies are:
Amy Tangerine 6x6 paper Rose's Rendering and some letters
Also letters from BasicGrey, BoBunny and Sassafras
Paperchase washi tape
American Crafts Peachy Keen flower and Neapolitan sticker
Distress Marker for journalling
I know I am not alone when I say that I hate my handwriting.  Other peoples pages look fine, but I always like my layouts before the writing and then feel disappointed in them afterwards.  There is nothing for it, Iguess I shall have to learn to love my writing, that or take calligraphy classes.
