A Scrapbook Layout

Last week the CHF girls completed another scrapbook layout. I was in the midst of my release last week and didn't get a chance to finish my page or post it. Today I put the final pieces together and am happy to share my page with you.

Here is the sketch (how FAB is this???) Julia Stainton came up with this beauty!



I have wanted to do something with this photo for close to 5 years *lol* I absolutely LOVED watching my son play in his excersaucer. It was one of his FAV toys ever. Of course I know this is "old school" compared to all those high tech contraptions out there these days but back in the day THIS was a hot item. BTW, the "flash" was not from today...this photo was originally taken in front of a sliding glass door. I am a better photographer now *lol*--I am really good at learning from my mistakes.



Here is a close up of my chipboard. I painted the brown on using a clearsnap pigment ink, then stamped the letters randomly using my backgrounder. Next I added some details to the letters.



I decided to add some appeal to the magic mesh by brushing a little white ink over it.

Thank you for sharing all these GREAT scrapbook layouts. I really love this one, and your sample. You used such great elements. That mesh with the pin through it is SUPER cool!

Love your page. I know what you mean about becoming a better photographer. Somethings we can go back a retake years later but our kids will never be the same age again!
I would love to know what program people use to make the layout diagrams!
