Lollydoodle Scrapbooking Layout

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of being a vendor at a local all-day crop.  I didn't know a single person when I showed up, but felt like I had made several new friends by the end of the day.  The ladies I met were so friendly and creative, and I loved hearing the stories behind their designs.  Here is one set of ladies participating in my Make & Take activity.  Joy (front right) and her two daughters (Laura seated next to her, and Jan on the far left) were enjoying a family day of crafting!  With Jackie added to the mix, we had such a fun time together!  
One of the Make & Take activities that I offered to the attendees was a two-page layout using Close to My Heart's Lollydoodle line.  The actual layout is based on page 22 of the Spring/Summer Idea Book (or Pattern 6 in Make it From the Heart: Vol. 2). 
When I created the design, I didn't have specific pictures in mind.  However, I came upon these pictures of my daughter from 5 years ago (that hadn't been scrapbooked yet!) and knew I had to use them.  My daughter's face in this picture of her jumping on our trampoline epitomizes "Pure Joy!"  The fact that she was wearing pink and green was an added bonus!
The sentiment stamp (Pure Joy) is from the Ivy Lane Workshop on the Go Stamp Set.  I added a couple Flamingo adhesive dots to jazz it up a bit.  The shapes were cut from CTMH's Artiste Cartridge. 
The journaling tag was cut using CTMH's Artiste cartridge.  The triangle polka-dot stamp is also from the Ivy Lane Workshop Stamp Set and was stamped in Juniper ink.  The edge was embellished with a few pieces of Silver Shimmer Trim (one of my favorite CTMH supplies!) and another flamingo dot. 
Once my pictures were in place, I felt the layout needed a little "something" added to it.  I decided to attach a couple butterflies to the layout to tie in the one on her shirt.  These were cut from the CTMH Art Philsophy Cricut Cartridge.
I wish that I had taken a picture of the end products that each person created.  The four girls at this table created four different layouts!  I encouraged them to make it their own and rearrange things or use the provided supplies in a different way.  I loved watching them take my creation and making it their own!
