Take Two

I was checking the Victoria Marie Facebook group page  when I saw that one of this week’s challenges is to scrapbook about friendship. That is easy enough to do. I chose this pic of me and three coworkers and got to work (ha ha!).

Take Two

When it came to choosing a background color for this photo, I had a Goldilocks moment. The black patterned paper was too dark (though I use it as a strip along the top); white cardstock (my second choice) was too light. This light white/pale gray color I eventually chose ended up being just right. Plus it’s from a Tim Holtz paper pad that I’ve had for a while, and I LOVE using older products.

Which brings me to a list of the stashy items I used: the Tim Holtz paper, the pink vellum, the round sticker at the top of the page, and the yellow/pink flower diecut.

One of my biggest challenges when it comes to scrapping photos of friends is coming up with a title. I really don’t want 152 layouts that use “Friends” as the title, so my objective was to come up with something else. I ultimately went with “Take Two” because this was the second group photo we took. I explain things a bit more in the process video for this page, which you can see by clicking on the image below.

Hope you enjoy! I love the layers on this page, and the flair is fun too. So . . . challenge completed, and one more page is ready to go into an album. That alone makes it a success.
