Good Times 4th of July Page for Creative Scrappers Challenge

You ever print photos and then try to make a layout work only to realize they are way too big. Yeah, that happened to me here and in the theory of not wasting, I decided to use them anyway, just off set one.

Love how that turned out to be the photos of Lexi and her cousin which I cut in a circle to make a wee bit smaller and used a heart doily under it.

Very very fun sketch here from Creative Scrappers.

Here is a close up of the flowers and glittery ric-rac with a new product I just got in my hot hands so now I think I need to use it EVERYWHERE.

Do you see, hiding under all that bling...a doily boarder?


Seriously. I got it from Linda's Shop which is called the Funkie Junkie...hmmmm I wonder if she named her store after me.

Here is a photo I borrowed from her website and a direct link right to this product.

I inked the edges of mine up and misted it a bit. I think misting will really make this product shine in my world.

THANKS LINDA for having such a cool shop!!!

And SIS IN LAW if you are reading this. Your kids are famous again! All published in blog land.

She was the one running around taking photos like a mad woman of the cousins looking cute.

YES, we made them all wear red, white and blue.

I will be making her a double page spread of all the cool photos she took that day.

Happy Nearly Hump Day!

  5. Awesome take on the sketch and I love the doily style lace and it looks great inked. Lovely work Mirtra!!!

  6. HI.. all the co-ordinated colors look fabulous! and a wonderful take on the sketch.. and I love all the doilleys..

  7. Can't wait to check out that shop - it looks fab - well the things you have bought from it I mean!! Loving all the lavish use of pretties in these last 2 pages & I hear you on the photo sizes. I don't print 10 x 15 often anymore as there is a 9 x 13cm option in Picasa that is just a smidgeon smaller - I find that works really well...

  8. Love how you made the sketch work for you! The ribbon flowers are fantastic and I love the doily border! Another awesome page!!
