Good Times

Good morning everyone!  Carol here today to share with you a layout I made using the School House Collection.    For this layout I decided to take several blocks of paper and stack them for a large base.  I created my photo cluster on this and added my title.












I've been on a bit obsessed with bows lately and have had several inquiries into how I make them.  I think we all know how to tie a bow but I thought I would share a tip with you about how I get my twines to curl nicely.  

The key factor is how you store them.  I like to take any thin type string/twine and wrap them on a spool of some kind.  It works just like a curling iron.  After a while they will have a natural curl to them and tie up all pretty like ;)

Here are a few different types of spools that I have in my stash
