The 5 Minute Layout!

Any of you who read my blog know how I am obsessed by trying to scrapbook or card craft faster!  I talk a big talk about how I love the process and every minute of the 8 hours it usually takes me to complete a layout but I am always really pleased when something works out and gets done quickly!
You may have seen this photo before....It was taken just a few days after Taylor's birth.  We used this shot on her birth announcement (with some other photos I also took).  My daughter loved the photo so much she had one printed on wrap around canvas and has it on display in Taylor's room.  I decided to also print it out as an know how I have a love for large prints in my scrapbooking.
Well, here it is:

I was in Hobby Lobby yesterday and found this lovely pearl and gem border with a touch of lace by Prima.  It was on clearance for $2.49 and I thought would be the perfect embellishments for this photo.  It turned out so pretty and really looks better in real life than it does here in the photo.

I am going to use this as the back page for her birth scrapbook....I decided against any journaling....I think the picture speaks volumes...what is it they say?  "A picture speaks a thousand words."

Here is a  closeup of the pretty lace, gems and pearls border.  Look at the cute little resin lovely!

Happy Crafting!!!
