My Little Angel


I think I am finally finding my way with the scrapbooking, I have done these two pages of my DD2...I am doing double layouts, although the colours through the album will be eclectic the facing pages will flow together....like these two. Our class was to do chipboard....well that was a challenge in itself...but once I got going it was okay. For the first photo I used the square chipboard frame and covered it, and a couple of flowers with the DP and inked them with Baja Breeze....I also tore some matching DP's and inked them....that was as far as I got that night. I don't know what it is about classes but so far, whatever I do there, I usually come home and take apart and redo it...adding different touches to get the end result! With this page I resorted to looking through 'Scapbooking Memories' and
found a lovely layout to use by Wendy Anderson, loosely casing a page by Steph Caskey-Devlin - ti caught my eye straight away!
I embossed a filagree border around the top right hand corner in white, which doesn't show up too much in the photo but adds so much texture and depth to the page IRL. I also stamped a filagree edge and added it to the frame, sponged some punched butterflies that one of my Twisted Sisters, Lesley (aka Marleygo) had sent me in a RAK (thanks Lesley - they are part of my 'staple' stamping supplies - I need to get that punch! I paper pierced a flight trail between each butterfly....lastly I added layered flowers on the top left corner....
I want each page to reflect the person it is about, my DD2 is a 'girlie girl' and these colours, flowers, butterflies are all so very her. I am happy with the end result! The next page was also at a Scrapbooking Night - I went to the second night with a friend who couldn't make the first - I found this more challenging as I started with circles - nice thought....but hard to get my head around....as usual I came home and took it apart....I finished it off today and am happy with it too....these reflext DD2's early years so well...I wish I could say she was such an angel now!! LOL!!
I have also made these pages for the Flutter by Wednesday Challenge....we were to use a Sketch Challenge and have butterflies or fairies on our card - I have not used a SCS Sketch but definitely did use one for both of these, I am enjoying using the various challenges for my pages as well - makes it all interesting - for me anyway!!
