My project today is a super quick layout.  I love paper and so many times I end up not utilizing the cuteness or beauty of the paper itself.  This little 1 pager, literally took 5 minutes and that included the time to fix my ATG.. (hehe)  I am not fond of my handwriting, so I like to hide my journaling as often as possible.

Alphabet Soup Girl "Zoo Cuties" - Base layer - love the little animals
Alphabet Soup Girl "Call Me" - layer and journaling cover
Be Mine "French Rose / Ash" - layer and journaling base
Alphabet Soup Girl Chipboard elements - ladybug, bumble bee, flower

Hope you enjoyed the ease of the project!

Hi Denine - Love the easy peasy layout! Sometimes we forget to take time and enjoy the cute papers, you are right.

I'm like you, I just love love paper and have a ton! I can't always figure out a good way to use it that shows off how cute it is. I really like your idea to include hidden handwritten journaling. That's my downfall, I hate how my handwriting looks on layouts and usually end up redoing it because it bothers me so much. I'll have to try this technique.

Sometimes I get bogged down in my creativity! I need to make some easy peasy pages. Thanks for the reminder...
