My Favorite Magazine

I couldn't be more excited to share with you my  first DT reveal for These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things!  Fav Things is headed up by Julie Tucker-Woleck (awesome girl and great scrapbooker) and a team of 24 designers!  We are broken into two teams and I will have one reveal to share with you each month!  My first assignment was to scrap my favorite magazine.
Now I guess most of you were sure it would be a scrapbook magazine, and it's not that I don't like scrapbook magazines, it's just that I've always loved Woman's Day magazine.  I can remember when I was little my mom use to buy it and I loved to look at all the pretty pictures in the magazine.  It is full of great recipes and decorating tips!  What was perfect for my layout were the Melody Ross papers and chipboard elements I've been hoarding, just waiting for the perfect layout!
Here are a few closeups:


Now I know this page is quite cluttered, but I couldn't resist with all of the chipboard elements from Melody Ross!  And can you believe that I actually used staples on this layout!  I think it is a first for me. I thought it would be neat to use them to add the pleating in the green gingham ribbon!
Now make sure you stop over at  Fav Things to see what DT#1 has created and join in on the fun!

I just love this layout, the clutter is just perfect with all those housewife (lol) pics and I grew up with Woman's Day being read by mum too, what a great memory to scrap my girl and so much awesomeness to look at, great GCD papers too. Melxx
