That smile!

Good morning!
The week seems to be running away with me again.  I have my in-laws staying with us at present, having travelled from across the pond to visit, which is always enjoyable......I just need a few more hours in the day to accomplish a little crafting.

Anyhow, I did get to sit down last night and colour for an hour, something I haven't done for what seems like aaaaaages.  I even dug out the Prisma pencils, something I haven't done for even longer......oh how I've missed them!  That image hasn't made it's way to a card just yet, so I thought I'd jump on here today with a layout.  I'll be back later in the week with a hopefully gorgeous card creation!

So, today's page was created a couple of weeks ago for Shelby's challenge issued for the online crop at Two Scrapbook Friends.  The challenge was to include some form of distressing on your project, so here's my page called 'That Smile'.................

The photograph is of my eldest daughter a few years ago now, but I've always loved the way the camera caught her smile.....perfect!

Papers are from a while ago too.....My Minds Eye 'Lost & Found' which I tend to hoard as they are far to pretty to use for scrapbooking (lol).
The distressing is fairly obvious with a handmade journalling tag, printed using Word, together with die cuts and a large glass bead from Making Memories.........

There's a sweet little collection of embellishments in the bottom left corner, which layered up very easily, together with a touch more distressing...........

..........and the title is made from a combination of Maya Road chipboard alpha's (covered with some of the PP) and some epoxy stickers, which I believe were one of the first things I purchased when I started scrapbooking..........knew they would come in handy 5 years down the road!

This was one of those pages that came together so easily, no procrastinating at all, just slapped everything on there.  I've said it before and I'll say it again.......gotta love it when that happens!

Well that's all from me today but I'll see you again later in the week.
Have a great day, take care,



Jayne, I absolutely love this page. I can understand wanting to highlight this lovely picture. Love the distressing, embellishments and colour choices too! You have outdone yourself once again!


What a smile, what a face! Soooo beautiful and the perfect page show off this photo. xx

Gorgeous use of that MME paper Jayne. The distressing is perfect for that and the photo is too precious!
