Layout #32 - Scrapbooker's Anonymous




Last parade page, I promise! This one's for Ailis's album, which I'm sure you couldn't tell by all the pink, haha! This month at Scrapbooker's Anonymous, they asked us to use the supplies in the one colour that is building up in our stash to make a monochromatic layout. Well, I have a ton of pink, a lot from when I was making Ailis' baby album in pink & green (I'm still not finished that album, but that's another story for another day!) 6 years ago. Wow, that's some OLD stuff! This sketch from the Scrappiest:
seemed perfect for scraps, so I grabbed all the pink I could find and got to it. As I was making this layout, I had in mind what I wanted to say for journaling when Ailis came up to me and said, "Sigh, I wish I could be on that float!" I just said, "I know, that's exactly what I was going to write!!!" I just love the wistful look on her little face in that photo, it really captures her feeling.

Supplies: Close to My Heart White Daisy cardstock and pink gems, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Creative Memories paper and pen, Bazzill cardstock, Cosmo Cricket, Basic Grey and unknown patterned paper, unknown vellum, Basic Grey rub-ons, Little Yellow Bicycle stickers, embroidery floss

  5. Oh Rox, I love this, that felt circle with the stitching looks amazing, how clever, I love the monochramatic colour scheme here and another great photo. Close to my heart have some gorgeous products, your misting is sensational too. Thanks for the advice re: taking some time to adjust....I go to DR today, I have been with this darn chest infection for over a month now and need some antibiotics, funny how because I had a new job I was putting it before my health, but time to do something about it.
