Blogging & Scrapbooking - Fun Friday Finds

The third prompt of this class was perfect for this weeks Fun Friday Finds! I have quite a collection of clothes hang tags - as new items come into my closet I take the tags off and slip them into a small plastic bag in my closet. Most of the time I am saving things like this because they have buttons or thread for mending. I also started to notice that designers started to get very creative with their hang tags and I knew someday I would use them for scrapbooking. I just didn't know how...

I also integrated marketing pieces that Nordstrom sends in the mail. Have you seen these? Gorgeous colors and art work. The only supplies I used from traditional scrapbooking was the cardstock! The rest of the supplies were tags and cutting up the pieces from Nordstrom.

My grandmothers was a huge fashion inspiration - she taught me the value o buying good quality, well made clothing. "investment" pieces is what she called them. Today I am fortunate enough to have the help of a stylist. She helped me find the best designer for my body type. It's more important to have clothes that fit right over having the 'label' in your closet. Even if it's a Chanel suit it's not going to make you look 20 pounds skinnier - it could potentially do the exact opposite! (layout will go in my 'me' album)
I will be posting some more fashion layouts over the weekend! Remember you can use these designers for color inspiration - you don't have to be into haute couture, to be inspired.

Happy Friday - enjoy life!
