Look, I Scrapbooked!!!

Do you guys love the Miss Caroline from My Mind's Eye, as much as I do??? For me, it was love at first sight. I ended up getting a little bit of everything from all of the Miss Caroline lines. Once I got the paper, I COULD NOT WAIT TO COME HOME AND SCRAPBOOK! I have not made a page for about 6 months. And I didn't even blog the last page I made because I messed up on the journaling section.

Well, on both of the scrapbook pages I made - that's right, I made 2!!! - I made a spot to hide the journaling. So hopefully when I write down the journaling for each page, even if I don't love the way it turns out, I won't care as much because I can hide them :).

Here is the first page:

Between the photo and the doilies is where the hidden journaling panel is. Once I get it complete, I will show a post on it.

I am crazy about the wood die cuts from My Mind's Eye! I used a butterfly on this page, and a label on the next page. I wish I could die cut wood this thick, myself with my Big Shot or Cricut!
Besides the Miss Caroline paper, I also used some older My Mind's Eye lines for the banner. I thought they all went really well together.

A few things to note, I didn't use any cardstock! It's all patterned paper. Also, the photo editing is from a site called PicMonkey. It's a good replacement for Picnic being gone. There are some really cool effects, and right now, all of them are free. Some day I will learn how to use my Adobe Photoshop program. Until that day comes though, this sight is great!

This next page is my favorite:

I used a combination for the Mister Huey's spritzers from Studio Calico and re-inker refills from Stampin' Up! The re-inkers created the large drops all over the page. It's a technique I will be using a lot more, for sure! My other favorite thing about the page is the banner stamps at the top of the page. These are from My Mind's Eye. Aren't they adorable! And they layer so well!
