Guest Designer - Week 27, Day 1

Happy Monday!  My name is Lauren from Lauren's Creative and I am so happy to be this week's Peachy Keen Guest Designer!  I started paper crafting after receiving my Cricut in November of 2009.  I quickly became obsessed and in April of 2010 I started scrapbooking.  I love making cards, but I especially love working on scrapbook layouts.  This week I will be sharing five brand new layouts featuring lots of "peachy" inspiration.  I designed a layout for each season (plus a birthday themed project), so today I am starting out with a spring-y project!


I have a 3 year old little girl, so most of my layouts are pretty girly, but this one could easily be switched around for a little boy.  You are my Sunshine is my daughter's favorite lullaby, so when I came across this title, I decided it would be perfect for a scrapbook page title.  

By the end of the week you will realize two things about me...I adore kraft cardstock and am completely addicted to my white gel pen.  I can't stop...it's kind of a problem. 
This little cutie is from the Cricut Lite Twinkle Toes cartridge.  I used a 1 1/8" Princess Face stamp for her face.  The little girls on Twinkle Toes have wider faces and the Princess Face Stamps fit perfectly!  The Princess faces were the very first Peachy Keen Stamps that I purchased, and I still use them all the time.     


To create a bit more interest on the page, I chose to pop-up the rain drops with little faces using pop-dots.

(I have a more detailed material list, including cut sizes posted on my blog.)

Now this week's giveaway...

Peachy Keen Stamps is giving away a set of the Happy Lashes Face Assortment!
This set is so versatile - I think it may be my all time favorite!  For a chance to win this adorable set - all you have to do is leave a comment on one or ALL of my posts this week.  If you would like 10 chances to win - you can comment on each of my posts this week here on the Peachy Keen Stamps blog and the corresponding post on my blog, Lauren's Creative!  You DO NOT have to be a follower or email subscriber of either blog to win, but of course I wouldn't turn you away!  ;)  



Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you will check back all week to see all of my Peachy projects!

Luv my grandkids said...

I absolutely love this layout. I sang this little song to my
little granddaughter all the time at bedtime. She has never forget it either. I would put her name in places in the song. Today she is 18 1/2 yrs old. I want to do this LO as inspiration for her. I have multiple sets of PK stamps, but I don't have this one. Didn't realize how you could use it, thought it was just for snowmen. TFS
