Live for Today with Alicia

Hello Quick Quotes readers. Alicia here, I am using leftovers today to create a sweet layout of my nieces.  
 
Since I have boys, I take every opportunity to get girly and scrap my four nieces. These are my sister's three on vacation in Savannah. I started with the Cricut shaped mats and bow in the center, I cut them a while ago and just had not used them for their original purpose. I used templates to cut scraps pieces from the Farmhouse collection.


I took the leftover title die cut from a Club Q Kit and inked it up with Blue Jeans PowderPuff Chalking Ink but it was too bright, then I layered Coal Miner PowderPuff Chalking Ink on top and went back and forth inking until I got it really dark to match the dark blue paper.


Here's a money saving tip for you...you don't need to use the whole strip of pearls!  (or any embellishment).  The layer of pearls all the way across the layout just added bulkiness under the big bow.  I save time and product by just cutting strips that will "show".
