it was decided
American Crafts Dear Lizzy

When Lady Bon-bon was born, Addie Blue was concerned about giving up her "little sister" title. She didn't like the idea of being called "middle sister". So we all agreed she would stay Little Sister and Lady Bon-bon would be Tiny Sister.

 Used lots of new Dear Lizzy on this one, along with a piece of Peachy Keen patterned paper for the background.

I covered a tag with confetti and sequins, and adhered a jar cut from a 6*6 pad of Dear Lizzy paper. the bows and hearts are punched from 6*6 papers, too. Love these small size papers!

I layered several of these cute pattern-filled polaroids to create a chunky border behind the title block.

The banner is from the Dear Lizzy chipboard set. I used some gold sequins from Dear Lizzy trim to sprinkle around the page, too. The punched lace paper beneath the old book page is a cut-off strip from Dear Lizzy paper. 

Supplies: patterned paper (American Crafts); chipboard (American Crafts); punches (Martha Stewart, Fiskars, Recollections, McGill); sequins (American Crafts); tags (the Paper Company); photo corners (Canson); pen (Sakura).

what a wonderful win-win solution to Addie Blue's dilemma.
Another great page with lots of layering!
I'm also so into 6x6" and 8x8" paper pads as of late. Before I used to buy only 12x12 sheets, but then I'd hoard my pretty papers and not want to cut into them for a tiny punch-out. Somehow with the smaller size, I don't feel as guilty to be cutting them up. I just got a heap of a mountain of 6x6 My Mind's Eye paper stacks from previous CHA from a T.J Maxx store - they were only $2.99 each (not sure if you have a T.J Maxx in yur neck of the woods, but I thought it'll be worth a mention ;)
