Don't you hate it when the finishing touches to a lay-out go horribly wrong!
Yesterday I scrapped this photo of our daughter. Its not a great photo, but one that I made her line up for when we went to visit the Hall she was going to be staying in this year.
Aimee really did not think it was even a little bit 'cool' to be having her photo taken at the gate way to her new residence. I insisted that I would be needing this photo! Aimee's face pretty much tells me just how happy she was not about being the daughter of a scrapbooker!
My page was going okay. I tried out my Heritage Cricut cartridge and cut out the lovely street light, and based pretty much everything else around it.
...Then I added the journalling....BIG mistake...its all squashed in and almost falling off the page. YUCK, I was now hating my page and thinking about throwing it in my bin. I decided it was time to turn off my lights and go to bed.
Today, another look at my page confirmed that it was not at all looking good, but I turned on the tiny, creative thinking piece of my brain, ripped off the journalling swiped with an ink pad, added a few bits and pieces and come up with a result that I can cope with putting in Aimee's album....
The paper I have used is Webster pages - Your Life Beautiful, range
One of my favorite paper lines.
And Prima flowers, another all time favorite, especially the tiny roses!
Here is a close up of my street lamp. I popped a circle behind which i have painted with iridescent Jo Sonjas paint, and I backed the 'light' with perspex for added shine.
