Starting something new!!

Welcome to the Sparkling Gnome, Visual Optimism’s (or would it be brother?) scrapbooking blog!!! I decided that since I became a design team member, and have lots of projects I am creating, I would make a separate blog for scrapbooking. I also have several followers that are scrapbookers/crafters only, and I think maybe all of my photo challenges and writing about my daily life may not be their cup of tea. Hopefully the Gnome will be. πŸ™‚

For my first post, here is my creation for this week’s Simply Scrapping Crafts Sketchy Saturday Challenge, and it has honestly become one of my favorite layouts to date. I used the Lucky Girl Craft kit for March, Homemade Happiness. I really loved all of the vintage embellie flair,Β  and happy Echo ParkΒ  papers. It doesn’t hurt that this is one of my favorite pictures of my baby girl. πŸ˜‰



Thanks so much for visiting the Sparkling Gnome (I had a blast making him…so much fun)….and follow us for my scrappy fun! Happy Saturday, Friends!!!

      ❀ Ally, you rock! πŸ™‚ I am glad you like my layout AND my gnome! I had soooo much fun putting together a gnome with a crown and wings. πŸ˜‰ I asked my husband one night what he thought of, when he thought of things I like…….and he said "sparkly things" and weird garden stuff…..hehe. πŸ™‚
