Sweet lil feet...

When Tassy was a baby I reeeeally wanted a photo of her sweet little baby feet. I was always so disappointed with the photos I got. But looking back at them recently, I thought this one wasn't so bad, so I decided to scrapbook it. I really like the soft vintagey feel of this layout (note - no patterned paper!).
In stark contrast, here's an ultra bright bright one about the sound of summer - the ice cream van! I'm not much of a fan of soft serve, but this ice cream man also had gelati and boy this strawberry gelati that Tassy and I shared was sooooooo good!!! And look - I used another Heidi Swapp chipboard frame! Woohoo!!My supply of patterned papers is now running dangerously low! I need to buy more but I really don't know what to buy! I've looked at a few online stores and have found a few that I like but I want to find lots more that I love!! Right now I'm into spots, graphic patterns, bold colours... can you help by recommending any brands or ranges? What do YOU like?

Oh lovely! If there's no PP in the top one, is it fabric?
Spots - Stampin Up! has a few! Little Yellow Bicycle usually does too. I'll have a think and get back to you. :)

wow I LOVE this feet layout. It is so soft and gorgeous. I have sooo many pictures of our babies feet in the quest for the perfect feet photo. what a great feeling it must be to be low on patterned paper. i havent been looking lately because i need to use up what i have! maybe i better start scrapping again...

oh I love these 2 contrasted pages! I love the soft sweetness of the first one and the bold excitement of the second page! That icecream looks awesome! Mr Whippy is way more expensive these days than I remember from netball and Jacaranda (the only times I remember Mr Whippy coming around!)
FANTASTIC work with using your PP!! Props to you. Word.

Ooh, I totally adore the baby feet one, I'm such a sucker for those cute little tooties too!

As for paper, I'm loving the Cosmo Cricket early bird line - I can't go past the gorgeous dark yellow with cream spots....and anything by October Afternoon is so yummy! Have fun shopping!

Yvette, your little feet layout is just gorgeous!! At the moment, I'm loving papers from Cosmo Cricket and the Basic Grey June Bug and Lemonade ranges have some nice papers also
