As each one posted her ingredient I had an idea coming together in my head. I finally had time yesterday to put pictures to paper and guess what, completely different than what I had been planning all week. LOL
I started off by gathering my photos. (This is a 50/50 thing for me, sometimes I start with photos and other times I start with a Layout and then find pictures that will work with what I have used.)
The pictures I used are ones I had gotten when my Granny passed away a couple of years ago. There are very few childhood pictures of my sister and me, so I was thrilled to get these. Three pictures of just my dad and me.
|This is my 12x12 layout. I love the brown and blue color combo with the old photos!|
|This shows some of my stitching- on the half circle element. I added half pearls to the "M"s. I like the way the title looks on the white space in my photos.|
You can see some ot my doodling here too. I doodles the scallop and then cut it out.
You can also see my flowers here to. I used the flowers in my paper instead of adding extra ones. (I wanted to keep the layout "simple" and gender neutral.) I added half pearls to draw attention to the flowers.
The designer paper is from a paper pad from Walmart (a gift from Hunter) and was Christmas themed, and yet you can not tell that by looking at my Layout.
You can check out iVillage to see the other layouts.(On iVillage I am mommabear2babybear, be sure to say Howdy! =)
