The View {CS No. 177}

We have a terrific sketch to play with at Creative Scrappers:

We're a week away from moving to our new house. I've been documenting the move for my scrapbooks. Here's a picture I took from my backyard. We have a tiny little yard, but a beautiful view, with a treeline and a farm byond that.

I went with BasicGrey's Origins collection to make my page. I love the quadrant design of the sketch, and I had contemplated using four different papers, but in the end went with a signle print for the four rectangles.


Here are a few closeups. I cut flowers from one of the patterns to use in place of the stars in the sketch and popped on some pearls.


I wanted to give my page a bit of an untamed look to mimic the backyard, so I distressed the edges of my papers and flowers and bunched up the journaling strips.


Here is my last addition to my page the next day after I was getting ready to photograph it. The upper right rectangle seemed too plain, so I cut out some leaves from another paper and added some swirly pearls.


You'll have to go take a peek at what the rest of the team did. Plus, my friend Fi Kenward is the guest designer this week, and her page is amazing!

Thank you for stopping by my blog and reading about my page.
