I love these photos of Nan and her daughter Franny. I've had the blessing of meeting this sweet cute gal and she is full of life. I love that Nan wanted to scrap these special memories of a mom and daughter at camp. Such a cute photo of Fran so I cut it out to make it a little more realistic looking.
I wanted a more rustic look since 'Camp' was the theme so I added beads for rocks, drew a tree, added some flowers, a vintage handpainted bluebird bead, a dragonfly and more. I used a special technique to get the color for the sky and the tree. I'll share more later as I'm working on the possibility of getting our journey published. I left a little journaling spot for Nan to record some special memories . . . the tag is enclosed in a semi-hidden pocket and states 'Slide Out'. What cherished memories for a mom and daughter to share. Nan is a wonderful mother and is building a legacy of warm memories for Franny.
I duplicated a similar page for myself and scrapped some photos of a Farmer's Market my aunt and I attended in Temecula.
So since it's Thanksgiving . . . I'd like to say that I'm thankful for children, for my Lucky 13 friends here, for my crafting friends and for the blessing of calling Nan a friend! I'm wishing you all a blessed Thanksgiving with loved ones. May you build many warm memories together this holiday season.
Yeah, yeah. I know, it's NOVEMBER and I'm scrapping a nice, summery photos from August. That's what I love about scrapping- it's snowing at my house this weekend but I can have little creative escape through photos. That's my story and I'm sticking to it...
Elena's photos were fun to scrap because I didn't feel like I was held to any theme. These aren't birthday or vacation photos, they are just plain old fun and playing around photos and I like to think of Elena just goofing around after the challenging year she's had. As for tips and techniques, there's really nothing ground-breaking happening on this page but while I was creating it, I did realize that I have been so busy as a Lead Fiskateer for the past year and a half, I can't remember the last time I took time out to shop for delicious embellishments just for my very own fun. I'm dangerously low on supplies (*shout out to all scrapbook companies!*) so I improvised and hand lettered my title and cut out the butterfly from scratch with nothing but my handy-dandy Fiskars scissors. I even got brave and hand-drew a frame right onto the canvas. Sometimes it's nice to get back to basics.
