My favorite cut file this month is the scalloped underline, and as soon as I saw it, I had a brainstorm for my layout.

I snapped this lovely photo of my daughter on an ordinary day while she was crawling around my office floor. When I saw the beautiful turquoise color in the kit, I thought of the shirt she was wearing in this photo. I essentially created a grid, but decided to make it a bit more interesting and intersect it with the lovely circular tags, one of which I hand stitched around with gold embroidery thread. A few chipboard hearts, enamel dots & drops of mist finished it off.
In addition to the May exclusive kit, which also includes stamp, wood veneer and cut file add-ons, Elle is also bringing out a mini collection called Patriotic, which includes tags, a stamp set and wood veneer! This mini kit will be perfect for your 4th of July project life spreads and scrapbook layouts.
Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts on the kit or my layout! I might just have a little Elle's Studio goody bag for one lucky commenter. Good luck!
