I like using my sketch challenges as layouts for my scrapbook pages when I can. I did that for this weeks Scrapbook Sunday share.


I love this picture of Rick and Rebecca!

I took it on our trip to the Smoky’s.  As you can see the trees were still bare and it was foggy.

That didn’t matter because we had Rick home for a little while.

I pulled the colors from the gray day and Rebecca’s jacket.

The page base is a 6″ x 6″ piece of Basic Gray. The top was stamped with the background stamp from Fresh Cuts in Basic gray. I stamped additional branches from that set in gray over the background and sponged the edges.

I cut the photo down to 3″ x 6″ and taped it to the bottom of the page. Over it a 1″ strip of Berry Bliss Designer paper was adhered. The top edge was paper pierced and a piece of polka dotted Sherbert Ribbon was layered over the bottom edge.

For the circular layer I stamped  a Day to Remember from Sweet Celebrations in second generation Basic Gray and once in full strength of Purely Pomegranate ink. I cut out the gray layer with my round Nestabilities, the Pomegranate layer with the 1 1/4″ circle punch. I taped both layers together and stamped the branch from Fresh Cuts in second generation Pretty in Pink ink. The little journaling I did was done with a 03. black Micron Pen. Both layers were adhered to a bigger Basic Gray Scallop circle, cut again with round Nestabilities.

I stamped the flower from Fresh Cuts in Purely Pomegranate on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out. It was adhered with dimensionals to my circular layers and a pink rhinestone brad (Fire collection) was added in it’s center. Last I taped the circular layers down with dimensionals.
