I made another page for Monica's book. For those who don't know Monica's story, she's my best friend's daughter, and her 23-year-old husband died last month after a 6-year battle with bone cancer. I'm making her an album to remember all the wonderful times they had in their short life together. I'm grabbing photos off of their Facebook pages for this book. They have thousands of pictures posted, lots of them like this one, and I thought James had kind of a funny look on his face like, "Not another picture."
I also used the palette from last week's challenge at The Color Room.
Here are some details. Most of the papers I used are by Studio Calico, but a couple are from October Afternoon, like the ones I used on the stars below.
The little flair button is also by October Afternoon. I had that little heart sitting on my desk, leftover from another layout and I thought it worked perfectly here.
I used a Crater's Workshop masking template and black ink in the background. Those black brads in the picture below have been in my stash for about ten years. Back when brads started showing up on scrapbook pages, I bought them from an office supply store. I still have a handful left. The arrow was cut from a Studio Calico paper.
I had printed out the Color Room palette so I could pick out paper and it was sitting there and I thought it would be perfect to add to my layout. You can see in the picture below that I used lots of blue vellum, which has also been in my stash forever. The phrase stickers are by 7 Gypsies.
The reveal at Creative Scrappers is awesome, so come check out what the rest of the team made. I hope you'll play with us. The sketch was lots of fun to work with!
