It's been a while since I've posted anything. Life has been crazy hectic for us. Last weekend, my mother (who is 86) fell and broke her hip. We made a rushed trip up to check on her as did most of my brothers and sisters. It's a 6+ hour drive for me (one way), so we didn't arrive until after she had hip replacement surgery. I'm happy to say she seems to be in great spirits and was up and walking around ...slowly...the day after surgery. My mother is a fiercely independent lady and I'm sure she'll work diligently to get her mobility back as soon as possible so that she can return home.
Today, I'm sharing a layout that I created for a challenge that I was doing with a couple of my scrapping friends. We've all met and spent time together scrapping, but since we live so far from each other, occasionally we opt to have a cyber challenge.
For this challenge, we used sketch #11 from Sketch Support as our challenge.
I used some papers from Scribble Scrabble and some rust colored card stock. The title work was cut with my Silhouette. I've been working hard to learn as much about my Silhouette as possible, and I've figured out some amazing things I can do with it! NOW, I've learned that there's a new Silhouette coming out in October called the Silhouette Cameo that will cut paper 12 inches wide! This new Cameo is definitely on my wish list!! Back to the layout. The photo is of two of my grandchildren, Katie and Adam. My daughter took this photo several years ago. I love that she took pictures in black and white...it give is an old feel. For embellishments, I used some one inch punched circles, 1 1/2 inch scalloped circles, a few blooms and some pearls that I colored with my Copic markers. I used some faux stitching to frame the photo. This is a super simple layout, but I do love how it turned out.
Hopefully, I'll be able to return to some of my challenges in the next week, but the way things are going, I might just miss a few...but no worries...I will be back!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate your fabulous comments! Until next time...
