Ready Set Go

I love Crate Paper Cool Kid collection, it's full of the bright colours I love and has so many fun embellishments.  Though it has been marketed as a boys range, there is a lot of stuff in there that I plan on using for my little girl rather that the wee lad because she is much more into bugs and dinosaurs and super heros than he ever was.  However, for my first 12x12 layout, I did a couple of photos of my two boys at stock cars as I had just finished pocket pages for the other photos.  

I had put a challenge up on The Paper Teapot facebook group to scraplift someone that is an inspiration so I chose to scraplift Jen Schow as she is just awesome.  If you haven't checked out her YouTube, then you should and you can find it here.  This is the layout I scraplifted.  I really liked how she used triangles all over which is a shape I hardly ever use and I also really loved the softness of the vellum over the photo.  I also liked the minimal embellishment clusters.

Well, tho I tried to emulate Jen, my layout is brighter and has a bunch more embellishments, and I totally didn't even do the triangles on the photos.  Despite this, I still love how it turned out.  My husband still has to journal on it for me which will make it even more special.

My favourite things in this collection are the wood veneers (which are LAYERED!), the delightful puffy thickers and I am really loving the cutesy font used throughout the collection!
