Everyday Moments

Hi everyone and welcome to my Blog J I have had a busy scrappy weekend prepping layouts for future reveals and I got this one done also. For this layout I used the sketch from Once Upon a Sketch and the palette this week from The Color Room. I was thrilled to get a feature for my last layout at OUAS. I did lots of distressing, masking, inking and lots of layers of goodies from my stash. The photo is two of my grandkids and I added a velum saying on the side of the photo….I get by with a little help from my friends….the Beatles.



In this close up you can see the masking and the piece of Dusty Attic in the small cluster. I inked the one doily with distress inks and used lots of layers of papers and transparencies.

In the large cluster are DA ferns and snowflake and a piece of the same vine. I added some gems and a crinkle seam binding bow.

Ok well that is it for today. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic weekend. I am so excited to get my Scrap That! kit in a few days and get ready for the Oct reveal.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
