Before and After - Gold Member Kit

Pin It This layout was just too much fun! The kit had something to do with it too! :D As a Gold Member at Digi.Shop.Talk, I took one look at the kit for July and thought "oh no! This is a girlie kit!!"

... But I decided to break away from my "boy mom" frame of mind and find something girlie to create. My first stop for inspiration? Facebook of course! I remember my sister-in-law uploading some adorable pics of my little niece and thought there HAD to be one that would spark an idea... and that's when I saw this photo.... OMG... it's PERFECT! :D

As I worked on extracting this photo and doodling... the layout continued to reinvent it's self and more ideas came flowing from my head to the screen. Before I knew it... the original photo was no longer in the picture... in it's place.. lots of paper pieces and hand doodling...and this is what I ended up with.... by far, one of my most favorite layouts of 2012.


  1. Wow, wow, WOW!!!! Leslie, this is a fabulous layout. I love how you used the kit and I love your doodling! Did you do the doodling in Photoshop? How fun!
