More Favourites

Some oldies using packaging somewhere on your layout - a challenge from Lara @ Scrapbook Outlet NZ. We had a choice of other things to use, like fabric, the colour yellow but I mainly remember having to use the packaging.

The photograph of Dh's nephews is partly matted with the backing from a pkt of Making Memories Passport Line. Part of the title is on a strip of red fabric. The Scenic route tags are blank 'cos Dh needs to check the spelling and I don't know what's up with my Dymo labeller. Can't thread the damn thing.

I love this pic of Dd reading quietly to herself one summer afternoon. It's also one of my favourite layouts. The journaling box/spot/space was originally a printed embellishment from Making Memories I think, but I stuffed up on the journaling. However, this layout had to have a postcard!!! Nothing else was going to do so I made one with a scrap of pale pink Bazzil (using the untextured side), a sticker stamp from an old Life's a Journey line and the barcode from a pkt of Basic Grey wedding rubons. Oh yeah, and the packaging is the white 'embellishment' at the top of the layout. I had fun with this one, lots of ink, paint and bling and BG's yummy Boxer line c/o a SBO monthly kit. I learnt to do the ink thing while doing Louise Williams Challenge for So You Think You Can Scrap over at Scrapbook Studio.

I used the packaging again and punched holes along the bottom with my very cool buddy the Crop-o-dile. Shear ribbon's been threaded thru the holes with some OLD yellow MM stuff.

Dang it Tuit. It hasn't made any difference. I think I know why but it's going on 11pm so I'm going to leave it for now.

I blog straight from 'picasa' - but I use picassa for all my photo cataloging & editing too.

I like the color combination in this, and the edge of the sassafras lass paper. Nice work!
