Dutch Mustard Soup LOVE

Yesterday was my first post on the Jillibean Soup blog since being asked to join the design team.  Pretty exciting stuff!  Here are the layouts that were posted.


STILL loving me some Dutch Mustard Soup.  The colors are perfect for Fall, which is right around the corner.  These photos are from last Thanksgiving, so I was happy to finally scrap them.  And the hearts were perfect for a page about how much my youngest LOVES his big brother.

To add a little interest to the right square on my layout, I added a almost all of the words and phrases from the coordinating sticker sheet.  How fun, hun?


Ok, wanna hear a funny story about this layout?  Well, I had actually scrapped these photos a year or so ago but never put the layout in my album.  After sitting in a crate for a couple of years all the cheap adhesive that I used had dry-rotted, so the whole layout fell apart.  Since I didn't really like the layout too much anyway, I rescrapped the photos.  I have NEVER rescrapped a layout, but I like this version a whole lot more.  And now I use good adhesive.  Lesson learned.

Goodness gracious, I LOVE Jillibean's corrugated shapes and alphas.  You just can't go wrong there!

Well, that's all for me today.  But be sure to check out the other layouts on the blog today and have a great weekend.  Toodles!

I think you should share which "cheap adhesive" you used so we don't find ourselves in that same situation;) You are amazingly talented!
