Layout in an Hour!

I don't know why I'm obsessed with how long it takes me to complete a layout.  I keep telling myself I love every single second (for the most part) of creating a layout or card and if it takes me hours (read: DAYS) well, than so be it!  That is mostly true except that I wish I could love the process a little more quickly! LOL!!!  Sometimes I wish I could create something decent in under an hour....

Well, this layout was really done in under an hour.  I used DCWV Coral Couture Stack (and the coordinating cardstock) so that took some time away trying to match papers up.  I do LOVE DCWV stacks... I had an idea in mind...I had 4 pictures to use but decided on these three.  These are photos of Taylor just after she was born with her other grandparents, my son in law's parents, Jim and Andrea.   So, I just sort of cut and snipped and attached and adhered and was DONE!  The only "special" I put on were the cute little dimensional butterflies made with the EK Success punch that does the layers. 
You can see the butterflies a little more closely here:

I used a little Gelly Roll glitter pen work on the butterflies which is there, trust me, but difficult to see in the photo.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the title using a free font called Segoe Script I got HERE.  This is a great script font, I think, and was so easily welded and cut on my Cameo.  Look at the detail....even the little insides to the e's and a's cut well.
I cut it in green and then also did a shadow in the coral color. 

We went to a St. Patrick's Day celebration at a local vineyard yesterday (who could imagine grapes would grow in Georgia?!).  We drank Guiness stout, ate Guiness beef stew and listened to a few Irish jigs.  Fun time!
Here is Taylor enjoying herself...ok, I admit this picture I chose this mainly to show those eyelashes (untouched photo...I promise!)!
Here is another photo of her (very seriously checking me out!...probably thinking "move out of the way, Omie so I can see the musicians and dancing!"). 

 And here is my little guy with his new big boy hair cut surveying his vineyard and kingdom...
And yes...we all wore green!

Happy Crafting!
