A heritage photo sort of

Actually its more of a comparison photo all in one.
So I started with this wordy paper from Studio Calico 
and some Tim Holtz embellishment pack.
Don't you love that hat.
 I have to admit I got carried away with the layering.
It was like I couldn't stop.

 And I jumped back on the button bandwagon.
And might I point out that itty bitty gold heart.
If you'll remember I posted a page of Quintin with his dad in 
that little mini book for mom.
It appears that the apples don't fall far from the tree. 
How cool is that.

Anyone else having trouble with white mists?

I really love having white mists on a page
and if you look at those grayish looking ones - that's
Heidi Swapp's white mist that I shook shook shook - 
I also have a recollections white mist - same result -
so when I tried a different tack - when
I altered the color on the title I tossed some white paint around.
That's the look I was going for.
 So that adorable little owl looked more red under my light.
hmmmm...he's on there now........
 And how about those glasses on the PL card - 
goes perfectly with momma's glasses.
And finally used that flower from Basic Grey.
How cool is that title...from M's $1.50 bin.
It had some pale yellow and tan hombre going on
that didn't fit with the rest - so I painted it white
to stand out more.
Although now looking at it, it may have worked
in its natural state.

OH and I used the Martha Stewart heart confetti punch for
with the gold paper and oooooooo some are itty bitty but oh so
adorable.

Layers and tissue paper

Used quite a bit of layers behind the photos.
Love that and adhered it to some tissue paper - as sort of a base.
 And here's that cute, adorable bunny again
peeking out. He is sooo stinkin' cute.
 Those itty bitty pearls were a pain to put on.
They kept rolling around and my fat fingers had a hard time
and using the tweezer bees LOL - Good thing there
were a lot in the pack. I ended up wearing quite a few too.
 Of course I agonized about the title.
I really couldn't find the color I wanted, nor the size
nor the actual words. I tried princess - but arrrghh.
Then I decided her name was royal enough.
I found some paper that sort of matched everything
and broke out my QK - anyone remember
the Emily font???
I only have the lower case but I think
they worked out - its a beautiful font and back in the day,
 I used to be quite the font junkie.
Didn't matter dies or stamps.

B&W photo in sequence

Again.
Especially with the sequence.
I was poking around in some of my older photo folders
(say that 3 times fast)
and found this gem which I thought I 
scrapped.
But I couldn't find a page so even if I did scrap it before,
who cares. No rules.
 I scrapped this page at Holli's as well, and
shock upon shock, I actually completed 2 pages and she finished
her baby album she was doing.
Who rocked the scrappin'!
Us!
 She also had that bunny stamp - which she let me
stamp a page full of bunnies for later use.
Is he not adorable?
You'll be seeing a lot of him too.

I also borrowed some flowers. 
Oh and that gold doily came from Holli's place too.
Come to think of it I really didn't supply much.
I love shopping at Holli's place - LOL!!! She has tons
of really cool stuff.
Thanks Holli for the cool stuff and ideas!!!

Love how this turned out and I want points for working
in that pink house.

Overthinking a page

 Can drive you absolutely nuts.
Fortunately, I was hanging with my pal Holli and
we were scrappin' together at her place and after
bouncing some ideas off each other - she hit one!
Strips.
Doh!
So simple, yet fun.
So I whacked a few strips, put them behind the photo
and wa-la instant mat on a very colorful page.
And how about that adorable bird.
Sigh....
Holli also supplied the splat punch for that fun splat.
LOL....

I love this photo! 
Lou totally exemplifies the fun I have in scrapping.
His enthusiastic crafting at his cousins
crafting party made me smile.
I feel the same way Lou when I have paint in my hand.
This turned out really fun and Holli once again
came through with the title!!
Studio Calico, Tim Holtz, one itty bitty piece of Basic Grey
and Michael's $1.50 bin (I'm telling you it rocks).

So I'm packing for our 2016 Summer Tour and its
a good think I looked at my lil album again.
I pretty much did a lot of stuff, so I just need to add journaling
and photos, but I did toss in some extras in case
I need to add more pages.
