Using up a favorite from a past Idea Book: Notebook. This a layout of my grandmother and pictures I found recently in that box from my mom's garage a few years ago. Whew! Do these photos ever smell like old, musky, mildewing garage! So, while I started out with the Workshop On the Go for Notebook, I couldn't help changing things up and updating the look a little. This layout is a Level 3 using the B&T, stamps, My Stickease, and embellishments. It was so fun!
This next layout is from this summer when my aunt visited. I used Cherry-O and the pattern from the WOTG. I changed the papers, though. I didn't think cherries would look good with any photos I had and much as I loved the Cherry-O paper, once I got it I thought it was going to be hard to use. I did cheat and use the Cherry-O Creative Basics bulk paper. I love my mom and and aunt's white hair. I do hope I inherit that!!!
I never really liked the paper Sweet Home that came out last fall. I didn't know how I was going to use it if at all. Why did I even buy it? I probably got it free as a Hostess Reward and then just stuck it in my stash. Usually up to challenges in my studio, I pulled it out determined to use it. The WOTG used heritage/vintage photos, which I seemed to have in every box I opened this summer. The result isn't bad at all!!! I made the journaling interactive to slide out of the protector where I recorded as much information as I could about the photos. These are photos of my mom when she was young. There are a surprising few in our family that bear her resemblance now that we can look back over the years. This page looks a lot better in real life but photos in the internet are the next best things, huh?
Wow!!! Lots of pages! My albums are filling up fast!
