Scrapping Up A Storm
I know I haven't posted many of my projects lately but I have been so busy scrapping and also getting ready for Christmas that I just haven't had time to blog. I've been scrapping up a storm for several different challenges and blog hops. So I thought I would share a couple of layouts today. Here are a couple I did for Let's Scrap challenges.
This first one was done using one of Cheri's fantastic sketches. Alhough these aren't traditional wedding colors I wanted to use fall colors to go along with the mum's, hay bales and pumpkins in the picture. Bev a Dt and friend from Let's Scrap also had a challenge going on to do a layout with flowers you make. I remembered that I had a quilling kit for a chrysanthemum that you use your cuttlebug to make. It made the perfect flowers to go with the pictures. If you want to have a closer look just click on the picture.
The picture on the left was one of my favorite pictures taken of Amy taken on the day of her and Jason's wedding. Amy's, Aunt Debbie, was the wedding photographer and as their wedding gift did all the pictures for them and even let me have them to. That was a scrappers dream. Debbie is a fantastic photographer and we have several nature pictures hanging on our livingroom walls that she did a couple of years ago.
This next one I did for another challenge on Let's Scrap. We were to do a layout with the theme being Something old, Something new, Something borrowed and Something blue. Of course the first thought is a wedding layout. So I did a layout of Amy getting ready for the wedding and in the bottom right corner are her items for the old, new, borrowed and blue. But I also took it a bit further. I used paper I bought last spring, a new Martha Stewart punch and a borrowed corner punch on the mats behind the pictures. I stuck with the blue in the pictures for the something blue. I can't say I am totally thrilled with the way this one turned out and may end up doing another one using the same pictures, but for now it will do.
I'm going away for a couple of days to Quebec to accompany my son Jason to a Wheelchair rugby tournament. They are calling for snow so hopefully it won't get snowed in there. Here's a picture of Jason taken at his last tournament in London, Ontario. It was so cool when they gave him the #7 jersey because that was the number he wore all the years he played hockey. I think his smile says it all - he is having a blast and it is so great to see him play.
I'm off to pack. I hope everyone has a great weekend and happy scrapping.
