Life Doesn't Have To Be Perfect To Be Wonderful

Scrapbook Layout created for Citrus Twist Kits - LIFE DOESN'T HAVE TO BE PERFECT TO BE WONDERFUL  -

Hello there!

I have debated about sharing this layout, but i think just like the title, I have to show you the wonderful results when accidents happen.  The layout was created to look like the picture on top(I usually photograph my work as soon as I am finished - if there is good light), however as I  was cleaning all the material, i knocked the bottle of color shine on the bottom part of the layout, so I had to quickly cut the bottom part so i can save it.   Then I was left with the debacle of what to do with the page.. SO  here is what i did:

Since I had stitched the cut file (backed with the papers from this month's Stories main Kit from Citrus Twist Kits) to the white cardstock as to form banners along with the sticky note flags from the Maggie Holmes collection, it was easy to cut the banner out of the cardstock.   I think the little layer of cardstock helps to add dimension.

Then glued it to a paper from Paige Evans' Turn the Page collection from last month's CTK kits ( i had run out of all the patterned paper from this month's kit).  The accident actually helped to bring the detail in the cut file more once it was glued to patterned paper.

Then I just cut the picture out of the original layout, and glued it back on this page (all the clusters are made up from the exclusive pieces from this month's  CTK kit).   Then just used some splatters to finish the page.  Here is the new layout:

I love the picture ( this is what a true portrait of my kids and the littles looks like!), and the new layout is just an echo of the title.  I guess things always happen for a reason!!!

Remember to check the Citrus Twist Kits store to subscribe to their kits ( the upcoming kits are gorgeous!!!).   Let me know if you have questions on how this came together.

See you soon!!!
