Time for this week's link up with Karen Beth for Tuesday @ Ten where we have a full week to write on the word prompt.
This is last week's word:
Even though I wrote it out on paper first...
I didn't get it posted!
Which is a really sad thing!!
I DO CREATE!
All the time!!
So, here goes:
Sitting at my craft table (that, once upon a time looked like this)...
I take a sheet or two of plain cardstock - maybe it's white, or black, or a deep shade of navy;
It could be pink or baby blue, or even purple!
Next, I find some colorful paper that coordinates with the cardstock;
Maybe a pretty floral; or polka dots (my daughter dresses her baby in many outfits with polka dots; I call her "Dottie").
Or, the paper could have baseballs, or monsters, or super heroes all over it.
For this layout, I just found some patterned paper that highlighted the blues in the photos...
After choosing the right papers, I find other things that will embellish the page I am creating.
I cut out some mats that will make the photos "pop"!
And then lay a few other things around the page:
Flowers or butterflies or a few buttons;
Baseballs and bats and gloves;
Monsters with googly eyes;
A "POW" embellishment to coordinate with the hero chosen for the page:
Next, I select a title for the page and add that; or just let the photos tell the story...
Add a few pictures;
And, I have created a page to add to one of the many scrapbooks I am working on...
Shayne and Sebastian
This is what I do to keep me busy;
And to preserve memories for the family!
