Oh Where Oh Where Did My Mojo Go?

Hooray! My first page to post for 2012!

I really missed not scrapping in December but with the "busy-ness" of the new year it took a bit of time to get back into the creative swing of things... I went straight to The Color Room for some pick-me-up on this one and it was still not easy!  I love these photos..they are of baby girl who is now 7.5 mos old...can you believe it? Over seven months already!! Anyway, I snapped these just days ago and wanted to do justice to them right away (which I suspect is the main problem...too much pressure on myself!).  I stared, I turned the pictures this way and that, I pulled out all manner of stuff to put on the page (I even asked my husband for his opinion...ehem..big mistake) and still frustrating! And just when I was about to call it for the night I tried a different combo of papers and though I can't say "voila!" I was able to push through and get it done.


And here it is:

I put together a lot of layers here, more than I usually work with. And really, thank goodness for tissue paper! Love that stuff and the purple tissue was my breakthrough here (though not much of a breakthrough)  :)  I made the large flower from vellum to mimic the flower on my daughter's hat. I hadn't used vellum in a while...need to pull it out more often! 

And thank you for listening to my ramblings..........! Cheers!


  1. Adorable! Love the photos! Great layering too. Thanks for swinging by my blog earlier- the mojo is slooowly coming back- I just got my first ideas for new projects in weeks- love how they all crowd in once I'm in bed and too tired to get up and write them down. ;) Love how you cluster the details in your pages- the buttons and flowers here look fantastic!

  2. I love this....! The layering is fab...! I want to do more layers, but it seems impossible... =) Your baby girl is so cute. When was she born? My Tuva arrived on May 17th. :) It's crazy how fast time flies...!

  3. Oh my gosh! What a cutie pie! What a darling! I love the vellum flower you made to mimic the one in her hat, and your clusters of buttons, flowers and bling are sooo cool!

  4. I could just look at your page and these amazing baby pics FOREVER. They make me happy :)

  5. This is AMAZING! Love your colors and embellies and even if you weren't an exceptional artist this page would be gorgeous just from your beautiful girl as the subject!
