Do you ever have one of those LO's that just doesn't work for you? This was one of them! I've battled with this LO for three days and am now admitting defeat. I wanted to scrap this family portrait from the early 1990's but just couldn't decide what colours to go with. At least the photo itself kept making me laugh while I struggled. I honestly have no idea whether we had tried to dress up for this or if we had just wandered into the studio during a normal shopping trip. I'm the one in the purple jacket in case anyone was wondering.
Anyway, this LO was created for the Show Us Your Stuff January sketch challenge. I'm not sure what I was going for with the purple ribbon flowers but they are my hand-made embellishment.
This LO is also my entry to Mission 13 of the Scrapz.biz 2012 Biggest Loser comp. Don't worry, entries have to be in by Jan 30th so you'll stop seeing entries for this comp soon enough. :) This mission was focused on buttons. I already keep my buttons nicely stored in by colour in zip-lock bags so no extra organisation was needed. The challenge was to get creative and do something a little different with your buttons on a layout. As you can see, I've decided to use mine as a frame.
