More "New Beginnings" from Webster's Pages~!

Hello everybody :)~ I'm so glad you stopped in today because I've had a bit more play with the adorable (and gorgeous!) "New Beginnings" collection from Webster's Pages- and I need someone to share it with :)! I would never claim to do "whimsy" well, but I will claim to try it out from time to time and that is what I experimented with a bit here on this layout. I knew that I wanted to focus on the precious magical time of childhood and what better collection to do that with than "New Beginnings"? As I watch my children grow with every day that passes, I love to see their imaginations unfold and it takes me back to when I had such an imagination that I could only dream of having today. I just wish I could bottle it up for them so that they could have it always! Of course I cannot- but I can try to remind myself to encourage the exploration of this magic as much as possible...

...and that was the inspiration behind this project:

"Celebrate Life's Magic"
My sweet, sweet baby boy Gunner :). Such a playful spirit- I hope he never changes!
The quote reads "The real magic wand is the child's own mind." ~Jose Ortega y Gasset


Let's take a walk through this layout, shall we?

 The "Charmed Perfect Pack" has an assortment of sweet little charms suitable for any project! I've used the sweet little envelope to accent my title piece here.

This adorable giraffe, as well as the elephants on the left of my photo were cut from the motifs paper:

An easy way to add color, texture, and layers to any project- alternate punched paper strips with some of the fabulous trims available in the "New Beginnings" trim pack:

I'm a bit of a nut for bows~ I've used the pale yellow trim from the collection to tie my bow on the left, and on the right I've used a bow from the fun & new "Quick Picks" products (each set priced at just $1~!):

Products Used:

"New Beginnings" Paper Collection
"New Beginnings" Designer Trim Collection
Charmed Perfect Pack
"Modern Romance" Quick Picks
"Everyday Poetry" Alpha Stickers
"Winter Fairy Tales" Bling
"Botanical Christmas" Alpha Stickers

I hope you have a wonderful day :)~!

You are lucky to have such a beautiful collection to work with and you definitely captured the "imagination" of a child in your layout! Love the layering of the trims! Simply gorgeous! To me there is nothing more precious then a child and their imagination! Something in today's world that seems to be a little lost, but not in your case with your wonderful children!

Oh and meant to add - how fun that you got to meet Nicholas from the Voice :)
You never know on the reality and contest shows if they are being true or not.
But he just always seemed so genuinely authentic and he is so, so talented!
