Scrappy Swap Month (Part Deux)


Happy Monday, y'all! I'm back with another scrappy swap with my friend Kelly. (You can see our first swap posts here) this time I put a mini kit together around the theme of 'lucky'. I decided to use a couple of papers from Dear Lizzy and Echo Park, paired with a die cut from Simon Says Stamp (all products linked below). 

The subject of this layout popped into my mind right away. You have heard me go on and on about this amazing group girl friends I have developed. Thing is, I didn't have that growing up like other girls and always wanted it. I had one or two best friends, but never a group of girls like this. And, man, was I missing out. Many of these women are like family to me, they are a valuable part of my story and, well, I am a very lucky b**tch to have them. And I know that. So, I documented it. I blurred out the b-word above, I never want to offend, but that's what I thought was appropriate for my title. 
I used a bunch of stitching to add the patterned papers, a little spritz of my favorite paint spray, and a sprinkle of sequins and wood chips. Oh, and a puffy heart I had leftover from Valentine's Day. Last thing I wanted to point out-I die cut the horseshoe from patterned vellum, I think it adds a nice detail to it.


So, what did Kelly make? Jump over there and find out!

Be back Friday to share the next installment of the #happymailisthebestmail series!
