Serendipity by Michelle

I love the team we have assembled here at IIG. I hope you do too! Most of us have been together for a very long time now and Michelle being our newbie is fitting in nicely when I hear how she was wanting to try Serendipity :) Go girl! A nice shout out to Jen, her Sister Chick, for a great idea that I know will make Michelle's daughter a happy little girl too! Read on...

So we were given this challenge create a page using Serendipity Squares. I have always wanted to try using Serendipity Squares in a project. I am so glad that I was challenged to do this!

The pictures I used on this page were originally planned to be used for my Absolutely Incredible Kids Day Challenge-Letter to a Child, but the colors in the picture were not working with the papers I wanted to use. Well, I am so glad that it happened that way! Because I love how this page came out!

I used ripped up scraps of purple, turquoise and pink. Added images of Taylor Swift that I found online and shrunk down to the size of the scrap pieces. Also copied some of her song lyrics too! I torn them up and randomly placed them over the entire surface of my 12x12 paper. I didn't place them under the pictures, but made sure there was some overlapping. I had already had matted my photos from the original plan so I just inked up the edges with Close To My Heart Blush Ink. I used Basic Grey-mini monogram sticker letters in Granola. I only matted them on the purple because they got lost by themselves.
Under each photo is journaling attached to the floss you can see on the page. One reads: "You the best thing that's ever been mine!" A line from the song "Mine" and the other is about how we came to these pictures. The other reads: "We were shopping with Grandma. Looking for hair clips for your Christmas pictures. You found these glasses and put them on. My Little Taylor Swift!" That's what came to my mind and when I grabbed my phone to get the pictures. Becky, my daughter totally reminded me of Taylor in the video from "You Belong To Me".

So, the best part of all was how Becky went nuts when she saw the page. Saying, "It's me and Taylor!" "I love it! I love you Mommy!"

I want to thank Jen(DT-If It's Groovy)for the idea of putting the page in "12x 12 frame in her room she'd prob love she can look at it all the time....." I love that idea!

    I'm loving these serendipity layouts. I'm going to try doing one!


  3. Oh, I can so see why the glasses made you think of Taylor Swift! I love that you were able to use the same colors of paper as your pictures, and yet, the pictures still pop out because of the bold white matting. Great layout Michelle!
