Hello everyone! I remember back in the day when my children were little and I always looked forward to picture day. I would have the envelope filled out and ready with a check, which happen to be a cycle of many checks for school this and that, boy it’s no wonder we weren’t broke! Lol, well now it is my turn to watch my grand children and receive those precious photos every year. I scrap lifted this layout from the famous Victoria Marie, where she did this layout on her Youtube channel for her 35th birthday. I just loved it so I decided to use the format and change a few things around. Take a look!
In this layout I used some of the papers from the Dear Lizzy Saturday collection and stickers. The sequins on this layout are called Magical Day In The Park. The little black diamonds are in the mix and I just love them! The cork stars are also from the Spiegelmom’s shop as well and they are called Cork Confetti.
Here is a close up of the chipboard title from the Dear Lizzy Saturday collection.
Here we are on day number 3 of this fabulous weekend! The Sparklers and our guests have totally inspired me to try a few new things and I’m just so thankful and thrilled to have them creating with me! Today, we are welcoming the wonderful Bonita Rose to the hop. I cannot wait to see what she created especially for today 🙂 Let’s get today’s party started with the line up!
Jody here again!! For today’s layout I wanted to accent patterned paper with mixed media. I thought this would be a little tricky with this map paper from Fancy Pants Good Fellows collection. I’ve played around the highly technical packaging technique ‘smooshing’ on patterned paper and found that the mixed media isn’t as forgiving as it is on cardstock. The mixed media tends to soak in, like immediately!
So, I decided to let more of the patterned paper show on this layout since it compliments my bike riding theme. I only accented smaller areas and the edges with some Keep Palm & No Yolking Coloringz and added my favorite Chunky Cork Stars! I’m really happy with how this turned out, especially since masculine layouts are not my strong point. I also used some Marmalade Distress Ink to ink up the edges of my layout to really define it.
