My "Bucket List" Goal That Happened

So back on my Part One mini album post, I showed a screen shot of my mini as TwoPeas featured project for the day.  Ever since I have been posting at TwoPeas it has been a "goal (or dream!) of mine to be the feature project.  I guess you could say it was one of my scrappy "bucket list" goals.  So, scrapping is all about documenting and that is what I did!

I figured it would be fitting to use some Jillibean Soup to scrap my layout with. Pardon the shadow on the first shot.  This is really just a me page and I retook shots a few times trying to get them the way I wanted.  I finally just gave up. My spot on the front porch is tricky this time of year because there is a tree that filters the light.  

Supplies:  Pattern Paper-Jillibean Soup (Grandma's Lima Bean collection); Letters-Jillibean Soup (Blossom Soup and Kraft Alphas); Tags/Diecuts-Jillibean Soup (Grandma's Lima Bean); Doily-Wilton; Flair-{a flair for buttons} Etsy shop; Ribbon-May Arts; Adhesive-Scotch ATG, Scrapbook Adhesives, Fabri-Tac; Pen-Zig; Stapler-Tiny Attacher

Close up of the flair that I have an addiction to!  I just tucked the "joy" tag underneath it and then centered everything on a few diecuts.

I always tie my bows separate.  I just like the look of them better when I tie them separate.  I ran the ribbon the length of the page and tacked it in the back.  I did use my Tiny Attacher to staple each end, more for fun than for use!

I have to say it was pretty fun to actually make one of my scrappy goals and then get to scrap about it!  Hope everyone is safe on the east coast.  I am sending positive vibes that way for you all.
