National Scrapbook Blog Hop

Happy National Scrapbook Day 2016!! 

Chances are, if you are reading my blog today, you love to scrapbook. 
Today, scrapbooking takes on many different forms from the traditional 12x12 layouts to smaller formats like 6x6 and my personal favorite, mini albums. Whichever form you prefer, we are all story tellers who love to preserve our favorite memories for generations to come. 
That is why I love that we take out the first Saturday each May to celebrate this wonderful hobby. As you hang out at crops at your Local Scrapbooking Store or perhaps just have a group of friends over for an in-home crop, I'd like you to enjoy and be inspired by the project I am sharing on my blog today! 
My theme for the month of May is May flowers and today's project shows off my love of pink flowers.

This is the two-page layout I created.  The solid cardstocks, Bubble Gum and Fresh Forest as well as the pattern paper, Vintage Paris (40% off this month),  are all from Fun Stampers Journey.  I love this paper because I was able to make my own embellishments.
I also love it because the Bubble Gum Satin Ribbon looks really good with the paper.
As you can see from this picture, I added some pink flowers images.  The pink flowers are from another piece of the Vintage Paris pattern paper.  I did this because I did not have any stickers or embellishments that I could add that matched the paper.  This is a great way to make your own. 
I distressed the flower using Hazelnut Blend ink to give them a softer look.  I then added them to my layout using foam squares to add more dimension.

I then added some more little details.  I added my title using rub on stickers.  I added some pearls throughout the layout and some pearl heart stick pins.  They all add some flair to the layout.
Even though I started with just some paper, I was able to add details with other things including cut out images, pearls and ribbon.  Enjoy!

We have a great group of bloggers and scrapbookers just like you joining me today so I hope you will take a moment to visit each one.
