Mom

Hello there.

It's Friday and I'm back here as promised, with my final DT project using the Authentique 'Delightful' line for Two Scrapbook Friends.

For this last project, a layout entitled 'Mom', I wanted to switch things up a little.  I wanted to keep the graceful elegance of this line, but lose a little of the girlie girl pastels in favour of a little colour.  I found the perfect orange background on the reverse of one of the papers, which really allows the purple in my photographs to 'pop'!


Authentique quite often include in their collections ('Delightful' being no exception) one or two sheets of 'word' stickers which are perfect as an aide to journalling.  For this reason my page centers around just that......the journalling, so I set myself the task of using as many of these stickers as possible.


Not bad........20 in total!

Now this page covers the fact that my Mom, bless her, hates to have her photograph taken as she's never too fond of the results.  Usually when I post 'stuff' on here, she is stalking my blog from 3000 miles away, and I'm well out of arms reach.  At present though, I'm lucky enough to have my parents visiting from across the pond, so although it's less likely she will see this, it does mean if she catches sight of it, I'm more likely to get a flip around the ear hole, for posting it on here for the World to see!

Back to the deets!
There's a nice little tulle trim layered under the photographs, for that 'girlie' element......

 

as well as a framed collection of embellishments.....a couple more of the stickers (from the co-ordinating sticker sheet) included in this of course.


Well that's it for today, but I'll be back next week with a couple of cute cards.......I've been playing with the Prisma pencils again!
Have a good one,
Jayne.x.
