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 NOTHING...so 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!
