Well, I'm really excited to be scrapping again! This layout took on its own personality as it was not what I envisioned in my head for it at all. I loved the green Basic Grey sheet, and it was kind of by accident that I tried the black with it. I think it kind of balances the masculine with the feminine very well. I started out with Girl Land that Webster's Pages just sent me and it didn't want to come together. However, I did use the beautiful flower, ribbon, word stickers and letters from it. I'll just have to wait until the perfect photos come before I can cut into or use the beautiful papers from Girl Land.
Mitch decided to rent a tux for this year's prom since it was for senior year. I thought his lovely girlfriend, Emily, looked like a Greek goddess in this dress!
I made this little card using the darling Popcorn the Bear stamp from Crafter's Companion where I am entering it in their May flowers challenge. I made the heart in the ear pink as well as used a pink background to fit my friend Stacy's challenge! The three dots on the ribbon are actually sparkly jewels. I fussy cut the bear and duck and then pop-dotted them for a little depth.
I'm finally getting around to posting some prom photos. I developed phlebitis last week. Not a good thing to have when you have so much to do with your son graduating from high school. Luckily, I had a lot of help with his graduation party yesterday. We had a great turnout and Mitch felt very loved.
I made this during NSD using Artful Delight's fun sketch. I also entered into BasicGrey's challenge to use a shape other than a square or a rectangle--I chose the ever popular octagon. I can't believe it, but everything on the layout is BasicGrey with the exception of the adhesive!
I made this layout using My Little Shoebox's sketch for NSD. I used two of their collections to make this layout-don't ask me right now which--I just grabbed the ones that seemed to fit the photos. I also decided to incorporate the color challenge at SCT.
I guess I am getting really nostalgic because I went back to my older photos for NSD. I guess it is because Mitch graduates from high school in two weeks--the day after my birthday!!!
Even though we are extremely busy right now with trying to sell our house and ending up Mitchell's senior year, I felt an urge to participate in some of the challenges for NSD. I made this layout using all Jillibean Soup patterned paper--no cardstock. I used Jillibean's sketch and am entering it in their challenge as well as Frosted Designs challenge to use only patterned paper....
Mitch was almost five years old in these photos. It is hard to believe he will be graduating from high school in two weeks!
I made this layout for The Paper Variety's make your own flower challenge. I loved this Amy Tangerine American Crafts map sheet. I have had this glass/metal focus on what is in this circle thingy for ages. I thought it would be cool to highlight the area we were travelling on the map. I made the box fold flower for the challenge. I was really excited recently to win some MME adventure brads. I hoarded them for a few seconds but decided to use them on this because I just love them SOOOOOOOOOOOOO much. I also used a little Mr. Huey Color Mist by dropping it on the page a few places. Finally, I added these cool little Basic Grey letters. The gray pennant was made with the Chaps line from American Crafts. I thought it was cool that I got 7 photos on this layout even if they were small photos.
As you can see, we took the trip in 2010. I'm so behind in scrapping...
