Smile on the Run

I am sure you all know how it feels to struggle with a layout... Argh! This layout is one of those... one of those that can drive you crazy... that just never seem to feel complete... I was so close to give up on it! Several times. But instead, I kept struggling.. adding and removing... and here it is now... ready to share :-)

The layout is about my sweet little daughter who is always on the run. It is impossible to take a good picture of her. But if I ask her to, she is always willing to stop for a short second and give me her "photo"-smile... if only on the run :-)

I have used the Park Bench collection from Fancy Pants. I love it!

There are two different chevron papers in this collection, so I cut the pattern from the blue and yellow one and adhered to the black and white paper using 3d-dots. I like the effect. 

Those wooden hearts from Freckled Fawn are just too cute! After all struggling, I am pretty happy with the result. It was worth it :-)

I got my Park Bench collection from Paper Issues, and you can do the same HERE. You can use my code ALEX20 to get 20% of your order.

Oh, and don't forget to link up your Pink Paislee and/or Mother's Day projects to Paper Issues blog. You can win one of two gorgeous Pink Paislee prize packs! 

Thanks for stopping by!

The end result turned out so cute, Alex!! I have those kind of pages too, and they drive me crazy!! I try looking at Blogs for inspiration when that happens! Love the way the chevron looks and the title works perfectly with your cute photo!

Looks great Alex. I think we've all been there. I have one that will go live on Tuesday, still not happy with it, but at least it's done. Your baby girl sure is growing up!
