I believe this was the best scrapbook layout I ever created...or should I clarify...the best paper piecings I've created! Guess it stands to reason when your youngest son is an unsung hero, himself a firefighter, it gives you lots of inspiration. I often sell my layouts on eBay and Etsy.com but didn't have the heart to part with this...somehow I think it won't be too many years and my young firefighter and his wife may have a "little hero"...a gramma can hope at least!
The paper piecings took some doing on this layout. I had to research old pedal cars to come up with my dalmation's car and then a little refresher in what dalmations look like...all a lot of fun but so much time. First there are sketches, then patterns, then cut Bazzill, and assemble/attach. If you can, try to check out all the talent at Etsy & eBay by searching for cards & scrapbook layouts. What you see will be amazing!
