A Leap of Faith

Hello, everyone! It's Karen here with a gigantic leap of faith. Sandy challenged us and I went all in. ♥︎

I have long admired beautifully shabby scrapbook layouts... the ones bursting with so much texture that 'closing' the album simply means tying pretty ribbons to keep it from falling open. :o) This is my (very humble) attempt at such a layout using Pion's gorgeous Easter Greetings collection.
This was the hardest thing I've ever made! I don't know how scrapbookers do it... but I had a lovely time dabbling into that beautiful world. The sheer volume of space was intimidating and I think I would need another week's time to fill it up more. ;)
With so many pastels in this collection, any and all embellishments/flowers seem to work. I chose to stay with white, which paired nicely with precious Violet's crown. :o) Isn't she darling? She is inspires me daily from afar with her heart of gold and this layout will be part of a gift for her mother. (The pretty photo is courtesy of Britny Sirotak Photography.)
Love is ever-blossoming, bursting forth through all tribulation. A Pion butterfly leads a pretty trail of mini hearts, one of the sweetest trims imaginable. A metal rose serves as the 'pull' for a journaling tag, which is covered in Shabby White Frantage.
Resin Prima Swirls also are sprinkled with Shabby White Frantage...
... and of course frolicking with pearls. ♥︎

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a wonderful weekend!

Hugs and blessings,
Karen ♥︎


  1. Dear Karen, I love it what I see, my heart grows up. Gorgeous layout, and all these fantastic deco, absolutely love to the detail. The little sweet girl did get a wonderful frame.
    That is has been a "hard work", I feel with you. But it's a perfect craft.
