P2P - Garden Bug

I love watching scrapbook videos on you tube and I really love the Glitter Girl series on Two Peas.  I am new to scrapbooking so my comfort level with embellishments needs a little work.  I also found it difficult to figure out how to journal on the page...like do I write in first person or third person...do I just give facts or do I speak on emotions or events of the day?  After much thought, I decided the my scrapbooks would be my personal view of the photo, event or person.  A type of photo journal book.

 So here is my Glitter Girl inspired scrapbook page of my daughter helping plant our vegetable garden.  She was just over a year and a half...so catching these still moments of my romping toddler was priceless.

Page size - 12" x 12"

Ink - Stazon Jet Black and Versa Mark with white embossing powder
