Many years ago, my sister (-in-law), Judy, Retired2stamp, invited me to a Stampin' Up Party. I was drawn to the 6X6 recipe card swap our local group was doing and had wanted to scrapbook too. I wasn't really interested in card making because I had witnessed my brother (in-law) Ed fold up a handmade card and put it in his pocket. I almost fainted and I didn't even make the card. But after a few parties, I was hooked and now make more cards than I had ever thought I would. My most recent passions are ATCs, tags & altered art. As you look through my blog I hope you can see how I've grown in my crafting ability!

Silly Funny Faces

I purchased this one page layout from EZ Laser Designs at the CKC Convention in Valley Forge, PA a few years ago.  The laser cut letters are over white but I added an argyle DSP from a Creating Keepsakes' All in One Scrapbooking Kit behind them.  I think the colors match perfectly & make the letters pop.  The photo areas were laser cut too so the photos are mounted behind the white.  I didn't have a photo that fit the vertical opening so I added the argyle DSP below the photo for my journaling.  I placed a narrow ribbon between them to cover the edge.

For a coordinating page, I used a full piece of the argyle DSP.  The photos are matted on white to match the left page.  I was going to add another title but decided on a strip of white with a light blue strip on top with a ribbon  to tie into the the left page.  I also put a clear epoxy quote sticker  acked in blue on the strip.

Here are the two pages together.  This layout will be pages five & six towards my SCS January goal of 8 pages.  Only 2 more to go!!   Thanks for looking!!
Supplies:  Overlay - EZ Laser Designs "Take Time To Be Silly";  Paper - Argyle paper from Creating Keepsakes' All in One Scrapbooking Kit, SU Wispher White, SU Bashful Blue; Assessories - Unknown mint green ribbon, Cloud9 Design Quote Sticker.
