Hi all you lovely crafters,
Since Christmas I've been a bit neglectful of my scrapbooking and I have been meaning to get back into the swing of things to complete some layouts for family and friends. Here is my first page for 2012. My lovely sister-in-law Sheila and her family. Just loved this photo the first time I saw and knew it had to be scrapped!
The plain shimmer 30x30cm page comes from a scrapbook kit I bought ages ago. I used a mask same size as the photo to stamp some stems and butterflies to shape a frame. The photo was matted onto some green patterned paper which had an embossed swirly detail and then on to some blue card thats pick up the colour of the shirt in the photo. I place the photo off centre to right to create some negative space and not overcrowd the page. The 'less is more' approach keeps the focus in the photo.The embellishments all come from the same K&Co pack (part of a great goodie-bag gift from Sheila) and the stamped images are dotted here and there with some Diamond Stckles in Waterfall and Star Dust.
I can definately feel the Mojo coming back :)
Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog. I really apprecicate your time and comments.
