Her Dad has been doing a daily countdown to her birthday for the last 2 weeks. Its changed each day by the time she wakes up. This is her standing next to the chalkboard yesterday. In honor of her birthday, I wanted to make a very special scrapbook page that we could frame. I went back in time to when she was 3, and chose one of my favorite photos of her. We have always lived near a beach, so there are many seashore photos in our house.
Heres a sneak peak~ lots of yummy texture~
And here is the completed page, all ready for framing! I absolutely love it. Its my favorite page to date!!!
Her expression is priceless, and I love how all the seashore colors blended together.
The photo is a 5 by 7. The paper is called Brilliant Blue Dot and is Bo Bunny. Its more the color of the closeup photos than this full shot, but its a beautiful color!
I distressed the edges of the sand colored cardstock (unsure of manufacturer) as you see below.
Around the bottom right corner, I added a partial border of ivory pre punched cardstock. This was in a pack by Bazzill Basics called Just the Edge.
Arent they so pretty?
The journaling cards are from Tattered Angels. The larger one was sprayed by me with some Glimmer Mist from the same company. I used a color called Bubbles to age it a little, and to add a bit of blue and some glittery sheen.
I then trimmed this card in some wire edged mini pom pom in a lime green that I had purchased a long time ago. It was the first time I used it, and wish I knew where I got it, cause it was fun and easy to use. I would get some in more colors.
