Unbearably Cute

Here are my husband and my Mother again.  This time they are posed for the camera with a very decorated bear.  We were never sure what the purpose of the bears were.  They were all over Hendersonville, NC - a lovely little town about 20 miles from Asheville - last summer.  Each bear was painted up differently.  Lenny and Mother picked this one to pose with as he was decked out in black and white, my Mother's favorite and currently what she was wearing.

If scrapbooking were fashion, I'd be committing a major faux pas in mixing black and white and navy.  That pretty little chevron there is actually a dark navy but I don't care. I loved it and all the other pretty papers that coordinate with it from PB&J by Basic Grey.  My husband is wearing dark blue in the photo so I'll use that as my excuse. The 6x6 paper pad is going a long way.

The layout is from Artfuldelight's June challenge.  I'm also entering this at Two Peas for Memory Keeping Monday.  The emphasis this week is on ways to add color and pattern to wooden embellishments.  I misted my heart. The woodgrain shows through the mist so it just has a subtle color. The arrows are embossed in gold.

Also on the layout are some old die cuts from Crate Paper. I love it when I can mix old with new and even black and navy blue!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Sweet layout.
    Remember there are no rules in scrapbooking. And if you listened to the one you thought for not mixing these colours, you wouldn't have created such a great layout :)

  2. Love the circles and your title work. My home town did something similar, only with squirrels instead of bears. Kinda cute, but also a bit puzzling....

  3. Oooh, so many things to love about this layout. Using different alphas in the title was genious. I Love the stitching too. So glad you joined us at Artful Delight. I am celebrating my bogaversary with a give-away here I hope you will check it out.

  4. Fabulous title! Many thanks for joining us at Artful Delight.

  5. Oh my, mixing black and navy is a no no? Nobody told me that. Love the page and your great mix of colors.

  6. Fun story and memory. Lovely page.

  7. I used to live in North Carolina, but sadly never visited that town. What a fun layout! Thanks for playing at Artful Delight!
