I loved this photo of my grandparents when I found it a couple of years ago and have been waiting for the perfect chance to scrap it every since. It was taken in 2007 at my younger brother's Debutante Ball which I didn't manage to attend. Scrapmatts chipboard butterly and fern, Lil' Red Rocket fabric flower.
This was inspired by two challenges. The first was the Punky Scraps #45 challenge just released. It was a 'get picky' challenge which I always enjoy. Here is what I had to chose from and what I actuall used:
Kat- Kraft cardstock - Nope
Marie- a photo of yourself - NopeKerry- 3 of something - The handmade brown flowers
Jolanda- Masking and something Red - NopeTamara- Not sure what this was meant to be
Cheryl W- something metal - Flower charm below the blue flower
Celina- something lucky - Nope
Misty- fabric - Blue flower and lace
Ashley- green paint - Background and chipboard
Kim- something pleated - Nope
Mandy- stitching- handmade or faux - On the lace
I also managed to complete this by the skin of my teeth for entry into the Once Upon A...Sketch challenge. This month was to finish this line "I miss...". Tell us about someone you are missing right now and why. Your journalling can be as long or as little as you like, but we want to hear all about someone you are missing. I hid my journalling behind the photo, it pulls out from the top. Here is a close up of the journalling when pulled out.
The LO is based on the wonderful sketch by Nadia which is also part of the OUAS challenge:
