Well I finally told myself that enough is enough, life is passing me by & so many things have changed during that time that I need to get my camera back out & start taking pictures again! I can't turn back the clock & capture those moments but I can make sure I don't miss the next ones that come my way!
So on that note, let me show you a layout I made May 5th - National Scrapbooking Day... I had signed up for "Creative Crop" over at the bigpictureclasses.com website in celebration of the day! Every hour for 12 hours they would post a challenge. This was what finally got me to sit here and actually complete a page!!
Their first challenge was to "feature a photo with a fanciful frame".
Don't you just love the Pom-Pom ribbon! I've had it for awhile but I thought why not use it for my "fanciful frame"! Besides, it provides dimension to the page as well as colour! Both the pom-pom & ric-rac ribbons are from My Minds Eye "Fine and Dandy" line.
One thing that I found difficult when using this ribbon was that it kept releasing at the corners. To help secure it, I placed a small gold brad at each of the corners. Next time I think I would try using a glue gun!
I also made the circle embellishment located in the bottom right hand corner! The hardest part I found in making this was getting the glue to dry without loosing it's shape. Next time I will definitely use the glue gun!
The paper that I have used on this layout is from American Crafts "City Park Discovery Park" Collection from last year.
Thanks for stopping by!!
Till next time... Happy Scrapping!! :-)
