I have completed yet another page of my daughters 'This is your Life Book' and here it is. I have decided to use various blog challenge designs for this book with a few of my own thrown in . I am hopeful this will make an interesting scrapbook for her whilst at the same time making me try some new ideas. We will see I hope you all like this page I am pleased with it and I hope my daughter will be too.
For this page I have used the May C is for Charm challenge set by the Scrapology blog team. They have some fab pages on their site, so whilst I might not win its great fun to give it a try.
This was picture was taken of my daughter when she was about three (she 19 now) she was just so cute always into something, this picture shows her in one of her quieter moments yet she still looks ready to pounce. or leap into action.
For this page I used a plain sheet of 12 x 12 lilac purple paper from my stash and I first created the borders at the top and bottom of the page. For the borders I used some metallic grey lace plus some white broderie anglaise lace layered over each other. I then added a strip of stick on ribbon in purple. Over these I placed a layer of light purple raggedly torn card which I stitched over on the machine. Finally to complete the borders I added a length of white and purple patterned ribbon.
Once I had finished the borders I then mounted the photo on two sheets of purple paper, one checked one plain and placed this in the centre of the page.
Using my die cuts I cut out some patterned doyle shapes plus a circle using my spellbinder and sizzixs dies and I placed them to the left of the mounted photograph. In the centre circle I added some journalling and beneath it I placed a metal butterfly charm.
At the top left and bottom right of the photo I added a collection of three dimensional card stick on flowers in various shades of purple plus some rub on butterflies in similar tonal shades.
Finally I added the title 'Cheeky' and a small flourish at the top right of the photograph to finish the page.
Now All I have to do is enter the page into the Scrapology challenge.
