Your Smile Makes Me Happy!

I don't normally use a lot of Prima Marketing products in my layouts, but when I saw the beautiful trim in the layout below at my LSS, I had to have it!  I just had no idea what I was going to do with it.  I took it out the other day and noticed that the packaging that the trim came in was just as beautiful, and I decided to use it in my layout as well.  

I had a hard time trying to come up with a picture that would coordinate with the ribbon, but then I remembered a family photo shoot from a couple of years ago.  We hung a quilt of my mother's over a swing set and then took everyone's photo in front of it.  I love the way the photos turned out.  I made a mini album with all of the photos for my nephew who was going into the army.   I can't believe I never took photos of the finished album after all of the time I spent on it! Anyway, I thought that a photo from the photo shoot would go perfectly with the Prima trim.

The product packaging is the beautiful strip to the right of the trim.  I used Crate Paper patterned paper, rub-on, and sticker; Sassafrass and Studio Calico letter stickers; Making Memories Slice for the large butterfly; and my favorite Martha Stewart butterfly punches.

The photo is my niece Olivia (again! - can't help it, she is very photogenic!)  I just love her smile in this photo!

The rain has started pouring here in front of Hurricane Irene predicted for tomorrow.  We brought in all of our lawn furniture, bought bottled water, and have meals planned tomorrow that don't require electricity.  Hopefully it won't be too bad.

Stay safe, and have a great Saturday everyone!
