Anything Goes Blog Hop

Welcome to the Anything Goes Blog Hop celebrating the one year Blog Birthiversary of our hostess Stephanie from Once upon a Paper.  You should have come here from Stephanie from Once upon a Paper.  If not you can start at the beginning of the hop at Once upon a Paper.  Stephanie is celebrating her Blog Birthiversary with Seven Days of Giveaways so make sure you check it out each day for the next week.  

Well, since this is an "Anything Goes" blog hop, and I am behind on my scrapbooking I decided to make up a page.

A friend of mine gave Little Stinkerbella these adorable shoes, when she was first born. I {loved} these little shoes and just had to capture this memory! I also loved these pictures because it looked like Stinkerbella was telling one of our dogs, Hope, to "check out" her new shoes!

I love my Kiwi Lane Designs templates and wanted to try using them in another way. I used the tiny brackets to make a perfect background for my large title. I did this by tracing around 3 sides of the bracket and then flipping the bracket over and tracing the 3 side again.

 I did the same thing with another one of the tiny brackets, this time on the back of my patterned paper.
Next, I traced around a piece of light pink paper to add to the background and then I glued them together.
 The light pink paper was a little larger then I wanted it to be so I just trimmed it down.
Here they are all glued together. I even add a little doodling onto the white background.
 I used the Paisley cartridge to cut out a shoe.
 The phrase "stylin'" is also from Paisley, and then I added some doodling to the white shadow.
 I added some tulle behind the shoe. I also wanted to add some little crocheted flowers to mimic her little shoes. I have never crocheted before so PLEASE don't looked closely! ;) (I found the directions online!)

Today I'm giving away a set of Kiwi Lane Designs Tiny Brackets. These are great for journaling and adding just the right touch to your layouts or cards! In order to win please be a follower and leave a comment by Friday night. The winner will be announced on Monday!
