The Full Scrapbook Page Reveal...

Have you been by the CHF scrap chat room yet? If so perhaps you have already had a peak at the sketch...if not here it is:



And here is what I did with it...



Alli's scrap tips:
I used various stamped images on the page--they are kept consistent in colour and placement. There is also a balance of colours. Typically you will find at least two of each. Did you notice how I balanced the eyelets on both sides of the page? What about the flowers? I pulled the tab colour from the patterned paper. In fact it was the patterned paper that set the page in motion. I choose the patterned paper based on the colours in my photo.


I placed my chipboard letters on the ink pad (pressing down) and then added a distressed look to them by brushing black ink over top.



Did you see that I placed a rub on on the picture? Did you notice the authentic tab? It's a journaling card. You just pull it up to read the note.
I just {heart} this photo!

I love this layout. The page you did is awesome, you are right, I think that would be my favorite picture as well. I started out as a scrapbooker and need to finish my youngest sons baby album. I am glad to have these layouts to start out with. Thanks.
