My First Bear Layout

Hello! This is a 2-page 12x12 scrapbook layout I agonized over for longer than I'd like to admit. I've never done one before and I am really happy with the end result. It's girly and flowery and lovely, if I do say so myself! I've used Prima flowers, lace, ribbons, and Swarovski crystals throughout. The photo mats and tags are machine sewn.

The full layout
The left page - includes 2 photo mats for your images (will slip right under the lace adornment). The left peek-a-boo bear (the eyes are reflecting the Ott Light above so there isn't a white slash across the eye)

The left bear

The right full page - includes three photo mats and two removable tags for images and journaling on the back

The peek-a-boo bear on the right page - photo will slide under bear's paws and lace and butterfly at the bottom

Here's a closer look at the right bear

I put it up on Ebay and have had many browsers but had zero bids by the end. I know I'm not a "known seller" of this product type - I get that. However, my photos are large and detailed and hide nothing. I'm going to ask for constructive criticism from a few respected people who have been there and are successful. If this doesn't sell I'll relist it in the next week or two. Maybe everyone is on vacation? I'm not discouraged, though. I loved making this and have tons of ideas swirling around in my head.

Thanks for reading. See you next time! ~Susan
