Old Photos

I came across this photo in my box of "Photos to Scrap" the other day and I was like "Holy crap this is old!" Mainly because my dh Rick is not to gray yet (I can cover my gray with dye, lol). I looked at the back of the photo and it was from March 2007, that's like 10 years ago...where the hell did the time go? 

For this layout I used the Bo Bunny "Bella Rosa" paper collection. The top left corner of my layout is a bit of a lift of one of Gabrielle Pollacco's layouts. I just really liked the way it looked on the layout. I popped up the photo with some cardboard to give it a 3D look. For the bottom right corner of the photo I did some fussy cutting of the roses in one of the papers from this Bo Bunny collection which I also popped up with cardboard. For the top left corner of the photo I used some of the Prima Blumen flowers, I love these flowers, they come in a few different colors and just make perfect flowers clusters for layouts! I added a bottle cap embellishment that I made using a flower I punched out from the Graphic 45 "Secret Garden" paper collection. I used a few other embellishments from my stash, did some distressing until I was happy with the way the layout looked. I'd love to hear your comments, TFL!

Swirlydoos February Round Robin

So this month's RR over at Swirlydoos is all about "Love"....what else could it be about in February! Our layouts should be about something/someone we love and to use those scrappy items that we love to hoard, use red, pink, black or white colors (or all 4 of these colors), lots of bling, flowers, well you get the idea.

So my layout is of my granddaughter (who I love to pieces), she's all dressed up for her grade 12 Winter prom back in December. For the colors I've used pink, light pink paper matting the photo and then the dark pink Prima butterfly. I've got a pearl flourish and a butterfly stick pin that I made for my bling. One of the things I love to  hoard are my chippies so I used this one "Chase Your Dreams", which I painted with some mauve paint and also used some Diamond Stickles to give it some sparkle, not that you can tell in this photo, lol. So this is my layout for Team 2, week 3. You can click on the photo for a larger view. I'd love to hear your comments, have a great week!

Another Liam layout

I was digging through my photos the other day to find one to scrap and I came across this picture of myself holding onto our grandson Liam the day he was born, December 2, 2015. I decided I had to scrap at least one photo of me with Liam. I used the Swirlydoo's October 2015 "Garden Harvest" scrapbooking kit (except for the background paper)for this layout. So here it is...
Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to hear your comments!
