Look Out....There's lots to look at today!
First - Here is my card for the Merry Monday Challenge - It's straight forward enough that I think I'm going to use as one of the designs for my Christmas in August. I'm very happy to have happened across this challenge - although I've known Lesley for a while now. It's helping me plan ahead better!
I love two step stamping and used watercolour paper with this image.
Now - here are the scrapbook pages that I've created as I follow Lyssa Griffin Zwalonek's "31 Pages in 31 Days...trying to get some paper scrapping done in the midst of all the MDS scrapping. I worked on a number of them yesterday to get caught up - please excuse the cement background - I found the sunlight a lot better to photograph in yesterday than my basement.
Day 2 - Allison groaned when she saw this, but I like this photo.
Day 3 - a double spread. I copied Lyssa's leaves exactly, but my arrangement of photos is different. I wanted to use a bunch of the photos my Mother has taken over the years. I miss the autumn colours of the east!
Day 4 - This sketch centred around the "page element" which was created....the Two Tags with the heading on them. I created the tags the same way, but changed up the papers for the flower and the page arrangement is different too. I loved the idea of all the little bits of paper along the edge - great way to use up little pieces - however I did go looking for words that worked with the subject matter.
Day 5 - By the time I started working on this sketch I decided that I needed to go get some more of my pictures copied and enlarged. The only one I had that I thought I could work with on this sketch was of me in the early 60's. I've also discovered that my camera now has two little specks on the lens that I can't get off....hmmmm must look into that.
Finally - I'm sharing a book that I was asked to create for a co-worker who is getting married this month and needed a guest book. I based the cover on her invitation, and actually cut out the names from her invitation so that things co-ordinated. On the inside I took the "Everything Eleanor" swirl and stamped the top and bottom (alternately) of each page just to add a bit of colour on the inside of the book.
That's it for right now - I'm waiting for some Crystal Effects to dry for today's scrapbook sketch - so I may post that page later this evening....and yes - it may take that long for the Crystal Effects to dry.
Hope you are enjoying your summer day - and the last of the long weekend. Thanks for stopping by to take a peak.
