E is for Embellishments

This month we have chosen to scraplift this delightful layout by Cindy Schneider, who we found on This is a digital scrapbook page but we have all made layouts with paper and glue!

A few words from Cindy:
"My name is Cindy Schneider and I live in Ontario, Canada, approximately an hour away from Toronto. I am a SAHM with my two children, Ashley (7) and Curtis (5), and have been married to my husband Brad for almost 10 years. I have been digi-scrapping for about 4 1/2 years, shortly after the birth of my 2nd child. I was originally a paper scrapper, but it was too time consuming and messy with kids around, and glue became my worst enemy. I came across digi-scrapping online one day and have never turned back. I started out slowly and finally worked up the nerve to start a gallery and apply for some creative teams, and was lucky enough to get a spot on the Creative Team at the Sweet Shoppe in August 2007. At the same time I started doing quick pages and albums for various designers, which led into designing and selling templates At the end of March 2010 I moved my store to the fabulous Sweet Shoppe which I have loved for so many years. The community, designers, creative team, and owner, Robin Carlton, are all amazing! One of my other hobbies is definitely photography, I have been trying to improve my photography skills over the years, and I am rarely seen without a camera on hand!!"Here is the sketch the Design Team worked from.
