Scrapping the Music - #91

Page Maps- Contest

This is a page that I worked on for Page Maps contest this week. There is a little glare on the photo, so I will have to try and retake this page. Problem is this is Florida and it is so darn sunny, glare on glossy photos are a problem. I guess I should have used matte paper for this one.

Christmas morning at my brother house 11 eggs hatched and there were baby chicks running all over the place. I love almost every photo I took that day, they are so cute. My brother has 6 children so there are lots of photos.

Create My Keepsakes- July Designer challenge

CMK has monthly challenges and I decided to play along this month.

I love this photo it is my nieces and nephew at Flagler Beach last summer. I am looking forward to my sister and her family coming to Florida in July.

I love seeing them and I always get some great opportunities to take photos!!!

Yeah new photos.

On the next step we talked this past month about altering old paper. The paper under the photo is some old K and Company that I doodles all over. Most of the rest of the paper is the opposite side of some patterned paper that I bought and never used.

I am person that usually works well under pressure... most of the time! I completed my layout last week end and planned to photograph my lay outs some time this week. The problems for me is this thing called work that keeps getting in my way. Staying up late, really late scrapping and playing, sleeping until the last minute before I have to get ready for work.

Sooo the photo did not happen until today. For some reason I can not access the gallery to post the photo and it has been that way for the entire week. I submitted a request for help since I do not have sufficient privileges to access. I am sure it is something I have done to screw things up.

So I am posting my layout here.

Pink Paislee contest submissions

Create My Keepsake has a Pink Paislee contest on their site. I created two pages for the challenge, the idea was to use the name of one of the paper lines in the title. If your are the winner for the category you win a collection of the particular named line of paper.

I have some of their products, but who doe not need more. I like working with challenges since they usually limit your options, but force you to get creative with their products.

Fascinating You is a mixture of 2-3 Pink Paislee lines. I cut the red flowers out and raised them with pop dots. Next I embroidered the stem and vines with #12 cotton thread that I got at the quilt store. I really like how the flowers swwm to flow with the lines of the photo. This photo is my daughter and husband on their wedding day.

Enchant is a mixture of a couple other Pink Paislee lines Office Lingo is th emain paper. I printed the defenition of enchant on the pink dotted paper. I cut out the other embellishments for the papers.
