She Baby Scrapbooking Layout - Helmar Creative Team

After what is a really long break from scrapbooking for me I am so excited to be back scrapping and couldn't resist starting with this adorable photo of my Granddaughter when she met her cousin, she was about 18 months old here and just loved to chat away in her own language but amongst her babble we heard the words She Baby so that is the title of my layout.

Now to share with you how I created it.
First I grabbed out my very limited amount of pink scrapbooking supplies and created a bit of a page kit with scraps and 6x6 papers. 
I just started gluing layers to my matted photo with my favourite glue for scrapbooking - Helmar Acid Free Glue

Then I added my embellishments, the chipboard stickers weren't sticking so I added some Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to ensure they stayed glued down for a lifetime.

I fussy cut a little onesie from some paper and adhered it down with Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to give it some nice height.

I was really happy with my layout and then I wrote my journaling and was no longer happy so painted over my background with some pearlescent white paint and added some spats of ancient shimmery sprays that are in my stash.  I like how the journaling is still visible but no longer jumping out at you now.

Are you having a creative block like I was?  Just grab out some coordinating supplies and print a photo you love and start playing.  I find it really helps.
