This months challenge on the Merly Impressions blog invites us to say why we scrapbook.
This for me came at a relevant time for obvious reasons (see previous post)
I chose to use this photograph of Mum and her Mother, (I never knew my Grandmother as she died the year I was born) on a beach enjoying the sunshine.
Papers are Kaisercraft - Charlottes Dream - from a kit I got recently from Merly Impressions.
I used the peach cardstock as a background for the die-cut after gutting the middle.
The kit contained rub-on sentiments about Mothers/Motherhood and also a pack of die-cut shapes.
I used one of these to add a rub-on as below and taped some ribbons behind.
Two other elements were used to frame the photo which is mounted onto the gutted cardstock.
I used a further die-cut and some rub-on letters I already had to create the message below.
The flowers were punched from the sheet called Vision, the fronds from Fantasy and some brown bazzill scraps I had.
I added some diamante the the centres and also to the swirl.
Futher ribbon twists were added around the floral area.
Again, another fabulous challenge from the Merly Team and a fab kit too - really enjoying it!
Thanks for looking - check out the Merly Challenge too.
