Playful Layout - Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop and Giveaway

Today I am joining in on the January 2016 Scrapping Our Stash blog hop and I am using a favorite collection from  Authentique Papers.  There are 10 talented ladies participating this month and I hope you take the time to visit everyone!  You should have arrived here from Christine Meyer's blog.

For this month's project I dug through my stash and pulled out the Playful Collection, which Authentique Papers released in 2014.  I loved the cheerful colors and fun patterns but I must have been very busy at the time because I never used it!  Fortunately for me, I still had the perfect pictures - can you say Little Tikes car?!
My boys are exactly 2 years and 2 weeks apart in age and when they were very young they were absolutely inseparable!  I love these pics of them playing in our cul de sac - taking turns in the Little Tikes car.  We have a "family story" that features that car, one headstrong son and a very steep hill!  His father loves to tell the story and this page now has that story tucked away on those tags!

My stash also yielded the Kraft Word stickers from Momenta...
...that provide a bold kind of journaling on this page.  I accented with die cut cork arrows and wood veneer elements.
One of my favorite things about buying a collection from Authentique is that it usually comes with some sort of alpha and word stickers.  I used a fun combination of the stickers to journal on this die cut wood card.
As a thank you for stopping by today I am going to do a blog candy giveaway (available to US only).  I have all kinds of fun stuff in my stash and I will put together a nice package!
