I hope you are enjoying this fine Tuesday. The weather is Brissy has been amazing! Spring will be calling soon :)
I'd love to share this layout with you today that I have popped together for 123 Challenge blog this month. The theme for August is
This is my take
After too much drama and moving over the years, I have precious few photos of my family or my childhood. I do, however, have one photo album that holds some gorgeous photo's of my mother and her siblings. Here she is with her sister and brother in an old tub!
I've scanned the original photo and printed it off, cutting the edges by hand, to recreate the original. I've added a lot of foam tape to get it to really pop out of the frame!
Yes, your eye are not deceiving you.... that is a doily. One one of my layouts... lol! I've given it a light spritz of Color Shine to jazz it up. I also love these gorgeous light bulb chippies from 2Crafty. I've kept this little guy plain.
So I'll let you in on a little secret. I love woodgrain paper. But I'm too stingy to use it. I just buy it to look at! I wanted to use some woodgrain for the title, so I Googled a picture of a wooden background. I printed it off onto some card stock and cut the title with my Silhouette. Ta da! To finish it off, I covered it with some Glossy Accents.
