At Fifteen......

Hello everyone...Crystal here with my very first post for Your Memories Here! I am so excited to be part of Kristina's new DT and feel blessed that she chose me to share my creations with you! All of the new YMH DT members, plus a few familiar faces, will begin posting this week so you must stay tuned for some fabulous inspiration from those crafty gals!

Today I wanted to share a layout with you that features mostly Prima products, and my son's beautiful girlfriend. She is a truly lovely young girl & I was inspired by a Taylor Swift song, Fifteen, & even included a lyric on the journaling card. The patterned paper, flowers, rose leaves, pearls, and lace ribbon are all by Prima & you can purchase them in the YMH store! I used some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to distress some vintage sheet music, as well as add some character to the journaling spot.

The title was cut using the Jasmine Cricut cartridge, while the journaling spot was cut using the Home Accents cartridge. The flower centers are some Dew Drops that have been glittered. The pink patterned paper is actually some leftover gift wrap that I simply used a border punch on to jazz it up! Then, I just finished up the layout with a few rub-ons! The lyric for the journaling reads, "This is life before you know who you're gonna be...." I thought it was pretty fitting and, even though it has been awhile since I was 15, I can still remember what it was like and how everything seemed so simple. Those were the good ol' days!

I do hope you'll check back each and every day this week to see what the rest of the DT creates for you, as well as check out the YMH store! It is a fabulous place to shop for all your crafty goodies! And, you can check me out here every Sunday as that is when I will be sharing my crafty projects! Happy Craftin'!
