Sweet Scrapbook Page

Pages don't get much easier than this!!!  This is a GORGEOUS paper from the Die Cuts With a View Sweet Stack. The texture and sparkle in it are breathtaking in person!  With a paper this fabulous I didn't want to over-do it and take away from it's beauty.  I used Sure Cuts a Lot to cut out the word Sweet.    Then I took my 4 by 6 photo, and just cut around it with my Martha Stewart paper scissors, which I LOVE!

I adhered the photo with my Scotch repositionable glue stick, and I ran the letter through my Xyron machine to adhere them.  Super easy and quick!  I did have some trouble with the letters, I'm sure you can see they aren't exactly even. I think the problem is that I centered the middle "E" and worked around it.  Since the W is a lot wider than the other E it kind of threw off my proportions.  Oh well!  I should have used the repositionable Xyron adhesive instead of the permanant.  So, that's my tip if you attempt this page!  *LOL*  Luckily, I was able to just say "heck with it, it's good enough" and move on!  :)  I am really working hard not to be too perfectionistic about all this, and instead take pride in all I'm accomplishing and be proud I'm actually DOING my daughter's baby book!!!!

Welcome to my life, I'm the same way but reality hits hard sometimes! I suppose when I'm fully caught up I can be a perfectionist!
