Wednesday Words

Don't you just love it when you get something unexpected? I was opening up my email the other day and up popped some new photos of my grandsons having fun and climbing trees like boys love to do.

So of course a scrapbook page or two is in the making. Today I'm sharing one I made for two challenges.  The layout is from my favourite place to play The Memory Nest - they always have great sketches to be inspired by.

My first ever entry for the challenge at 1-2-3 Get Scrappy last month was picked to be in their top three - here - so it would be rude not to support them again this month.  I picked these three elements from their new board: circle shaped picture, brads, pastel colours. 

I started my page by machine stitching the grid lines from the sketch.  Next I die cut the two photos into cirlces and mounted them onto pastel patterned paper, also die cut. I stamped a sentiment onot the smallest square of patterned paper.

I temporarily placed them all onto the page with the buttons and brads so that I knew where to stamp the sentiments and camera image.  Then I added my title and journalling.

I plan for this page to be opposite another page about the same visit which will show a larger landscape to set the scene and also a photo of one of the boys rolling down the slope - hence the rolling mentioned in my journalling.

Paper: Chatterbox, Scrapbook Walls + scraps from my stash
Stamps: Bo Bunny, Mam-Razzi; May Road, Spool Sentiments; Technique Tuesday, Summer Rocks by Ali Edwards; Kaisercraft, Life Sentiments
Ink: Memento, rich cocoa
Die: Spellbinders, Classic Square large
Alphas: Sophisticates, yellow high five; Papermanis, birdsong
Embellishments: brads & buttons from my stash

Thanks for dropping by today, your visit is much appreciated.
