Stinking Cute Designs

I turned my Mystic Paper Design Team projects in to Kim, she pronounced them "Stinking Cute"! This is a very good thing from the ladies at Mystic. In fact it was my second official stinking cute (the first one was from Jennifer a while back), so I was felling pretty stinking good.

I decided to design two 12x12 layouts. My kit had included 4 sheets of the new Paper Loft heritage patterned paper. The colors were wonderful and perfect for layouts using old family photos. As an added bonus the papers are double sided.
The first lay out is of my great-grandmother Frances and her children, including my grandmother Mabel as a young girl.
I wanted to do something different with the ribbon. After placing it this way then that, I ended up rusching it.
The second lay out has poems that my Grandmother had written to my mother, as a child, for her birthday. I added some photos of my mom as a young girl.
I had just enough patterned paper and ribbon left to make a card. I used a picture from an old postcard and blinged it up with some blue rhinestones.
Design Team Captain, Sheri was up to her knees in Girl Scout cookies and still managed to get her projects done and turned in before me...she also sold out of all the cookies! Lindsey did some wonderful layouts. One with photos taken at the who doesn't enjoy the giraffes? Yasu has a fun layout using pictures of her scrapbook buddies.
Click on over to each of theses three talented ladies blogs to see what they have been up to.

I'm not even sure "stinking cute" is the right description for these layouts. I think "timeless" is more appropriate. They are wonderful!
