Lolo*land


This is the layout that was used as part of the users's gallery highlight yesterday at Two peas.
I love this layout, it is so Laurel!
The journaling reads:
This is the happiest place on earth. The sun is always shining and the birds are always singing! Your mind is a beautiful place, and you are never worried about what anyone else thinks about how you do things. Your dad and I always say when things get tough, "I wish I were in lolo-land!"
I was selected by the amazing Jen Lessinger!
Jen is someone who's work I am very inpsired by, and so this was quite a large compliment to me!
I used Claudine Hellmuths Poppet paper and flower stamps, Daisy D's is the paper that the flower was stamped on. Making Memories velvet brads, the sequins, felt bird, Luxe design rub-on and german scrap butterfly are all from the April Jenni Bowlin kit. I hand stitched on American Craft felt letters for the title.
The best part of this project was when Laurel came into the room when I was almost finished and said "I would like to live in a place like that!"
That told me I had told the story the way it should be told and it meant everything to me!
We all keep memories in some way or another, I just want the ones that I keep to be seen and remembered by others years from now.
