Use Your Stuff #171 - You Are My Sunshine

Good Monday morning! I am so excited to share with you my first project for Use Your Stuff today! This is a talented group of ladies and I am so honored to be working with them.

Challenge #171 is to be inspired by a song. The first song that came to mind was "You are my sunshine" and I went with it. Little Miss Ada definitely brings a lot of sunshine to our lives!

I did something on this layout that I rarely do. I did not use a sketch and I'm happy with how it turned out! Almost every layout I do is based off of a sketch.

I used October Afternoon's Farmhouse collection that has been in my stash for ages, and the flair from Lawn Fawn is about a year old, too, and that gold thread - I've had it since my cross stitching days - over 5 years I'm sure.

I hid what little bit of journaling I had on a tag behind the photo.

I am also linking this up over at Crash Your Stash. (This is #22/50!)

Be sure to head on over to Use Your Stuff and see what songs have inspired the design team. There is a lot of inspiration over there! I hope you have time to play along with the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by - I will be back soon to share some more projects with you!


  1. Adorable Lori! I think I still have some of that paper line left and I must take a leaf out of your book and look at my older stash! I am ALWAYS working with sketches so find it so tricky to design a page myself but yours is fabulous! Just goes to show what you can do with a few rectangles of paper! xxx

  2. What an adorable photo and page!! Loving this!!

  3. Adorable page! Love the black and white picture with the yellow and black. She is such a cutie!! Congrats on your new DT!!!

  4. What a wonderful color combination and sweet prints! The flair is perfect and the title is spot on! TFS!
