Today's scrapbook layout is a one-pager featuring the last batch of pictures from our Christmas trip to St. Louis. On the last day of our trip, we went out to lunch with my great aunt at The Blue Owl. I titled this layout "Generations" because the picture is of me, my mom, and my mom's aunt. It's almost like having a picture of me, my mom, and my grandma because my great aunt has sort of been like a grandma to me ever since my actual grandmother died when I was a little kid.
Outside of the restaurant there was one of the St. Louis birthday cakes to celebrate the city's 250th birthday. My parents got pictures of almost all of the cakes last year!
I had this very flowery paper kit that I thought would work well for these pictures. I no longer have the name of the paper kit's manufacturer, but it was really nice because it came with stickers, and sticker letters, and other embellishments.
The fabric flowers were not part of the kit. I saw them in my stash and just decided that I liked the way they looked with the rest of this layout. I also whipped out one of my border punches for this layout. I had a really cool flowery paper punch that would have gone so well with this layout, but the punch broke a few months ago, so I had to make do with one of the other two punches I own.
I think a trip to TJ Maxx is in order for more paper punches. They always have good discounts on scrapbooking stuff, did you know that?
