Hi Everyone and welcome to my blog. I started my Christmas shopping today…FUN!! I make a lot of my gifts but I still have to buy some. I came up with a fantastic idea today for making little gifts…I will try it out soon and post it.
OK so on to this layout! I used the sketch from Once Upon a Sketch, lots of new Prima Printery goodies and a few others from my stash. The theme of this layout is…to journal something that you remember for all the wrong reasons. Well this is a photo of my sister and her two kids. It is my sister’s birthday. We do not get to see each other much as we all live far apart…and this was a very special day. All of my brothers and sisters were there to celebrate her birthday, as well as many other family members. But that is not why we were there, it was not to celebrate her birthday, that was just a bonus. We were there to lay my dad’s ashes so that he was with my mom again. Together Again! So this truly was a day of many memories…and was so wonderful to have so much family there to celebrate it with. Ok so on with the sketch and my take on it.
I used lots of layers on this layout, and lots of distressing and inking. In this corner you can see a piece of Dusty Attic with the flowers. I first painted it, then I inked the edges, stamped it and used some crackle paint on it.
There is another DA piece beside the large flower cluster. The big grey flower is from Angelica’s etsy.
Last close up is of the journaling section. When I ordered this collection from sb.com..I also ordered a book of Prima Ledger 12x12 papers. I would definitely recommend this to everyone. On this layout I have used it on the back page and it matches great.
Ok well that is it for today. I will be back in a couple days with this months Sneak Peek from Scrap That! This is totally my fav Scrap That! kit to date! Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic weekend. Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
