The one with 3 bugs

3 Bugs in a Rug paper that is :)
This month our kits for Scrappy Chic were not big.....but just wait til next month! Already so much stuff had come in from CHA. There are three super cute lines from 3 Bugs... this one I used is called Dawson.
I had a lot of fun working with this paper. It is geared toward kids pictures... but the basics of blue, green and orange can work with a lot of things. The stars would be great for sports pages as well. I love blue and orange together too!

I pulled out an old pictures from when I was young. That is me and my little brother Andrew (yes I know I had a boy's hair cut... I guess it was 'in' at the time!). Since I didn't have a lot of embellishments to match and I still wanted to get some dimension to the page, I opted to use some cut outs and lots of pop dots!
Its hard to tell in the first image. Hopefully this one can show what I did. I cut out some of the squares in the background and popped them up. Then I popped up the whole mat/journal area on dots as well. Added a little bit of hand cutting (stars) and some drawn on stitching around the edges. Super cute effect!
Now back to my scrapbook room.... I want to take advantage of my day off!
