I finished this layout tonight. Farrah attempting to start a fire with two sticks she found @ the park. The base paper is Dear Lizzy 5th and Frolic and I used the Burst template from Studio Calico (just arrived last wk) and Tattered Angels Aquamarine. I embossed the paper mats with the Honeycomb folder by Cuttlebug and used an EK edge punch to add some detail. After it was glued down I used the a paper piercer to punch holes in half increments and stitched using plain old embroidery floss. As for the die cut, I used EK Scalloped Oval Frame and inked with Prima Teal Damask chalk. I then added my pictures and used EK Swiss Cheese punch to make the confetti.
OK now I must finish my show. I hope you guys have a blessed evening.
I completed this one in under an hr, maybe a half hr. It isn't the greatest photo but I still liked it enough to scrap it. See I'm an everyday scrapping gal. I love to scrap the candid moments as you can tell from my layouts and I just go with the flow. These kids had such a burst of energy that day running up that hill. I just snapped away and the idea to use this picture hit me as I uploaded them to my laptop. I used Teresa Collins Tell Your Story products. The mists are Studio Calico White, Mint Julep and Boss Lady. The blue banner is T. Collins and the ppr layered over it is SEI Black Orchid. The die cut flowers are also T. Collins. The letter Stickers are Glitz Teeny Alpha. As you can see I added a stitch. I chose black because I wanted it to make the photo stand out because of all the light colors.
