Saturday Spot

The next instalment of my scrapbook journey with Shimelle's Layer on Layer on Layer class is up today.

The focus for week 3 was colour and today's page needed black, white and one other colour.

So I went with the salmon pink colour from my skirt and built up a stack of papers and stickers round the photo of me and my fellow college friends at a reunion in Portsmouth.

I included the things we said as tried to pose for our photo - seems as we get older we get more particular about how we stand. And then this photo happened and it all went pear shaped!

Papers: Bo bunny, Summer Mood
Stickers: Simple Stories, SnapCarpe Diem, #Whatever, Life in color; AC, Remarks; Shimelle, Accent & Phrase; AC Vicki Boutin; Cosmo Cricket, Pretty Stuff, Life Story; October afternoon, Bookworm
Journal Cards: Simple Stories, I Am; Elle's Studio, Quotables
Enamel dots: Simple Stories, Carpe Diem

The challenge for the next page was to use two complementary colours. And my photos made that the simplest choice ever!

This page just flew together and I decided to use two focal areas for layering embellishment stacks linked by a splatter of white ink.

I found lots of blue and orange elements in my stash and layered like a pro!

I'm trying to remember to always add the date to my pages. Although they are all stored in date order in yearly albums it's surprising how quickly you forget the actual date that the photos were taken. And yes the date is always on the photos on my computer, but that's means looking a bit harder!

Papers: Lilybeedesign, apricot tree; AC, Daydreams; + loads of scraps
Stickers: Shimelle, Box of Crayons; October Afternoon, Bookworm; Simple Stories, Whatever; MAMBI chips, Happy Planner; Lilybeedesigns, Chit chat, Pinwheel labels; jillybean Soup, saffron Yellow Pepper soup; Basic Grey, Carte Postale
Die: CUTplorations, gorgeous
Ink: Mister Huey's Color Mists, opaque white

Thanks so much for your time today, i really appreciate you stopping by my blog.

And keep crafting!
