Hope you had a productive and most importantly, fun National Scrapbooking weekend. I finished one of these over the weekend and put the finishing touches on the other too late Monday night to get posted until now. Both pages are from a birthday outing for my Mother. (Warning, slight purple paper rant below.) They are for 2 challenges each:
Before we get to the scrapbooking part, notice the photo of my husband asleep on the sofa in a store with my purse draped over his arm. He took the photo of my mother and me while shopping, saying he was catching us in our natural environment. Guess I got a photo of him adapting to the environment. :-)
Challenges: Artfuldelight Sketch #1 challenge, Shimelle's NSD Use a pattern paper background
For both pages, I had to do a lot of stamping and pulling together embellishments to create this unorthodox color scheme of kraft, purple and charcoal. It is just what worked with the photos - even though the paper crafting industry seems to treat purple/lavendar as a forgotten step-child. It is one of the colors of the rainbow!
Challenges: Artful Delight Sketch #6 challenge, Shimelle's NSD grouping embellishments challenge
Project Notes: words are cut on the Cricut with SCAL software. Used the MME doily stamps in tone-on-tone and white embossed over vellum. Also used some embellishment from Stampin' Up! Pretties kit.
