Kickin' it old school - bust out those decorative scissors!

When my step-mom first got me into scrapbooking a million years ago, I got several pairs of decorative scissors. I kept them and used them often through Andrew's first baby album, but I can't say as I've done much with them since. When our challenge came up this week at Practical Scrappers, I had to dig through the kiddo's art box to find a pair!

I totally wimped out and used the most non-threatening decorative scissors I had in stash - which luckily was my only pair, so I was safe! The edge on the purple & green strips were made using my scallop scissors - these were the inverted (upside down) pieces to create a wavy look instead of the girly scallops.

Overall I really enjoyed how my layout turned out. This uses supplies from the AC Bailey Goodies Kit of the Month for October - stinkin' cute! Including Pink Paislee patterned papers (from which also came the tag) & glittery brad. The glittery swirls are from Marcella by K and the flower is an ink-distressed daisy from Wal-Mart's faux floral section.
Thanks for looking!

Great layout! Funny, I recently took out a pair of decorative scissors when I was getting tired of all the scallop and lace edging :-)
