Okay…so I knew that the latest issue of Onstage was to be made available to us SU! demos mid September. I waited and waited. I was so tickled with a melted heart to see my little boys picture in the table of contents and displayed as one of my winning artisan award entries. YOU CAN ALSO SEE HIS PHOTO PUBLISHED IN THE DICTIONARY NEXT TO MISCHIEVOUS!!! The story behind the “Zany” page was that I wanted to capture the perfect portrait of my little Ethan. I chased him around for hours and he kept making faces at me while sticking out his tongue…LOL. I gave up and just went with what he was giving me.
I haven’t scrapbooked in over 6 months. So I took another take on Beate’s weekend sketch challenge and created a 6″ x 6″ scrapbook page of my little Ethan. I had already made a card in my prior post if you would like to scroll down to see a card with her same layout.
I wanted to create journaling with raindrops incorporated around and within. I used chipboard petals from On Board Blossoms & Basics and covered them with Soft Sky CS and Crystal Effects.
For his little 1-3/4″ square pic, I used all colors of cardstock in my theme and mounted on a chipboard scalloped square from On Board Lots of Letters. You can also see the large scalloping created with my Coluzzle Cutting System with Soft Sky DSP.
