Ah, yes. It's January and after a super busy Decemeber, I am making up for lost time by scrapping a ton this week. And I love it. I'm settleing down in my workout/diet routine (more on that later), and finding a good goove for me to be in. it's nice.
For 'Always Photogenic" I dove into my Studio Calico Napa Valley Kit. It just sings to me. The colors, the patterns. I could not have put together a better kit! This photo of John was taken on a dock, next to the train tracks in downtown Amarillo. I love this photo. See that little bit of orange on the wall?
Be still my heart. I love it. Oh, and I love that little guy, too! (wink, wink)
This page is from Napa Valley as well. I took the photos of the boys in front of Cavender's - a western wear store here in town. They have this old, rusty GMC truck that served as a perfect backdrop. For this page, I threw in some Fiskar & Martha Stewart punches. See, the orange paper towards the bottom? Thats Studio Calico paper, and its now my favorite!
This last page is a page that I did for a challenge at Back Porch Memories. I had a couple of old photos of my mom, that I scanned then printed at home (you know, cause Walmart was giving me the ugly eye about who really 'took' the photos. I digress.). This time around, I used the newest kit from Studio Calico's Back Forty (and addons). I snagged this kit in December (in the sale section of Studio Calico). Not my usual go-to colors, but I love, love the vintage-y feel of it. We don't have a ton of pictures from my mom's childhood, but I like how I was able to included several different ages of her on a single page. For the challenge, we had to use something we have a lot of, but never use (see those journaling stickers. I have bookoos of those, and I alwayfs forget to use them!) and the include something that we use all the time. For my title, I used Thickers, and those are defainately a favorite go-to item!
I've got a deadline to get to - lots of creating and playing with paper to do!
