When I saw this layout in the new idea book,
I HAD to order all that I needed to do this layout.....
(accept the stamp set :()

I had a grand child try to "help" with my layout while I was out of my scrap room, so I had to add a few more pieces of paper.  This is the new 'Ariana' paper pack, the colours in it are gorgeous with three new cardstocks that only come with this paper pack.  This helps us stay on trend with the new colours and lets us play with them too.  I was having so much fun playing that I also decided to make a mini-album for my Mom's 75th birthday... this is the cover using the 'Ariana' paper pack and our Artbooking cartridge.

Your next stop on the Team Braer Hop is Michelle Hughes of therighthugh.

If you get lost along the way, you can head to  Brae's blog at, as she has the complete blog list.

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way.
