Scrapping The Little Things

Sadly, today's "little thing" isn't so little anymore! Grandgirl, Olivia, turned 12 this summer and she's growing up to be such a gorgeous young lady. The layout is a 12x12 though it could also be done in 8.5x11 format. All that you are not seeing is merely white space; freed up real estate, if you will. ;) My background paper looks gray in the photos but it is actually a creamy color, from the DCWV, Le Creme 12x12 paper stack.

Here's a closer look...because I know you want to see pretty Olivia closer-up. ;)

Title from My Creative Time, Things I Love stamp set and Vintage label and banner dies. "brilliant" sentiment comes from the Girls Night Out stamp set, and small tag is from Chunky Jar Accessories dies.

MCT Treasured Moments and Build a Chevy Background stamp sets, and file folder die.

More MCT dies used as background pieces.....4x6 journal, index tab, and stitched postage stamp frame.
