More than meets the eye...

Ta Da! It feels like it's been a while since I sat down and did a scrapbook layout just for me! I almost forgot how much fun it is. Pretty basic, right? (Typical Amy. I like a lot of white space.) I used the old Monograms for the 'W' and my favorite alphabet, Marigold, for the 'altons' and "I just love 'em" was cut out in Oatmeal.

But wait... This scan is a good overview, but it blows out a lot of the cool detail.

Check out this sweet pattern from the QK embossing folders. (The photo shows it much better.) I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this pattern. It's the Retro Diamonds border embossing folder (EF-BDR-028) and it totally matches the pattern on my paper. I also love the retro squares and the hounds tooth and the dots.... well, there are a lot. They're the perfect accents for my simple style. Which embossing folders best fit your style? ...because I just may have some for one lucky commenter.
