There are  photos I have tried to scrapbook several times; this is one of them. I guess today is its day. 🙂


I struggled with this photo because I wasn’t sure which colors to use with it. We are all wearing such different colors, so there wasn’t an obvious choice there. I could have turned the pic to black and white, but I do that very rarely and didn’t feel this one warranted it. I finally decided to go monochromatic. So let’s move on to talking about that.

  • No sketch for this page! The design evolved from a few product decisions: I wanted to  use this dance acetate from a Messy Box kit. However, their paper (and acetate sheets) are only 9″ x 12″, so I had to do something on one of the sides. That led me to the large white letters, also from a Messy Box.
  • Since I was using some fairly new products, I decided to dip into my stash for the photo mat. The corrugated paper came from my 8-1/2″ x 11″ days, and I added some older vellum and a square doily as well.
  • I liked stamping on the side of the title. I used some stamps from my Felicity Jane kits.

Random note about the photo: I love how this picture also captures Cupid’s endless desire to fetch. He’s in the background waiting for my sister to throw the toy for him. 🙂
