Canada Day 2011
It seems like such a long time since I have done any scrapping but lift just got in the way. I finally got around to finishing this Canada Day layout for a challenge going on over at Let Scrap I also used one of Cheri's fantastic sketches for it. The photo's are from our recent Canada Day celebration. My husband, son's, DIL's. grandchildren and myself when we went to the celebrations being held at a park here in town.
For the challenge we had to use papers that were only red, white and/or blue. We also had to use at least 10 buttons in the same colors and chipboard for the title.
I recently received an amazing gift from Enmarc Crafts which is a company from South Africa. They sent me several of their chipboard embellishments so that I could join in on the fun on their site. Wasn't that so sweet of them. The Canada title is one of their fantastic pieces. I used Ranger distress ink and Color Box Cat's Eye Inks to color the chipboard and then applied glossy accents to it.
Here's my layout
