rosy cheeks

So finally I finished something for this challenge of Jenn's. I have about 4 other things I'd like to finish, but the time just isn't available at the moment. This is mostly because it takes me about 2 hours to complete a page, start to finish. Maybe longer depending on my mood. I just get so darn picky about everything.

This page has been sorta waiting around for me to finish since about January. It's been staring at me from the page protector on my shelf since then, begging me to finish it.

My apologies for the poor photo. Lighting sucks at 12:30am. I love these pictures of Eleana so very much. The colors are so nontypical for a snow/winter page in my opinion, so that gave me a lot of options as far as product to use. I could definitely think outside the box for this one.

you can read that, right?

I used alllll sorts of things for this. The floral blue PP is Tres Jolie, the diecut paper is Making Memories, and the shimmery stripe is KI Memories. I used American Crafts thickers and plastic arrows/photo corners as well (remember those Sha?). The transparency is meant to frame a photo, but I really like it the way I used it here. It's from the Magnolia line, like Bohemia. And then the gel stickers are Love, Elsie (the Zoe line) as is the chipboard frame (the Jack and Abby line) and I also used a teeny tiny scrap of Love, Elsie paper (to the left of the larger photo) to write Eleana's name and the date of the photos. The paper tab is Heidi Swapp, and the round journaling paper is CK memories or whatever, some line from them, there are like 1,000,000. add some sweet words, pink staples, and Stickles around the diecut paper and voila!


What's so funny? said...

Yeah, Sha remembers those photo corners. Still using 'em. Along with the arrows, etc. I *LOVED* your unique use of the transparency. Wow. I'm totally gonna scraplift that one. It never even occured to me! I really adore the layout. Then again, I adore all your stuff. And is that the page I sent ya?? I like what you did with the stickles.

Your style is fabulous. I love this layout! The colors look so cool together. I love the transparency idea as well. The letters are great. Are they foam? You have a prefect balance of embellies and color and it is just BEAUTIFUL! Those cheeks, I want to eat her up!

No I didn't use anything you've sent me YET Sha, but I will.

Thanks girls, you're too much.
