After looking for some inspiration for my next page a friend added me to a scrapbook challenge. This challenge...
The Distressed Look.
I have to admit it took some conscious effort to tear the paper initially. I'm one of those people who has a wreck it journal and can't bring myself to wreck it. I know, that also puts me closer to the crazy end of the scale too. But hey I'm OK with that.
So this page was made using the Close To My Heart "No Worries" paper and sequins, some buttons from my stash, and you also get a sneak peek at some of the new compliments coming out in next months catalogue! The compliments are from the "Better Together" collection so keep an eye out for them, as they are gorgeous!
Oh and I nearly forgot, the cute little stamp "Live the story you want to tell" was from convention. Stamped using 'Cashmere' for a shadow effect then stamped slightly off centre in 'Sapphire'.
Now I've shared this page I might add some personal journalling to the left of the photo. I don't like to hide my journalling but I do like to have something to read and reminisce over down the track.
Its been a few years since i created a scrapbook page. Mainly because my kids are grown up now and I don't have many photos printed. Most nowadays are on my phone or computer. But since I've lost 2 hard-drives in the last couple of years and one of the many jobs of a mother and record-keeper for my family I though it best to start creating again and get the photos off the computer into gorgeous albums my family will be proud to show when friends come around.
So after the Close To My Heart convention i got inspired to create and these 2 pages are what I came up with. They were also the only photos i had of any quality that i wanted to use. So these pages are dedicated to my twin (though nothing alike) nieces using "Little Dreamer" workshop your way kit.
