I wasn’t going to scrap the photos I took on Christmas Day this year, but looking at them, I suddenly realised I had a photo of 4 generations…… It doesn’t happen very often, although Jill has 6 great grand kids…… the oldest being 16! She is often babysitting 3 of them, 2 of whom are twins, so they keep her on her toes.
Mind you, she will not & has never given up her social life to babysit. She has always said to her grandkids, she would only look after them if she has nothing on. Well, in Jill’s social calendar that is not very often. I can’t wait to retire!!!!!!!!!!!
The photo was layered onto a piece of Riding Hood Cardstock, leaving 1/8″ border prior to adhering to the Whisper White Textured Cardstock. For some reason I always like to use Textured Cardstock as my main page .
I incorporated the flower that I wore in my hair on Christmas Day – made from a couple of flowers I had lying around, added Rhinestones to the middle & bamo, you have an ornament for your hair! I then hot-glued a clip on the back. The clip was removed as I adhered a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back. I also sponged a bit of Riding Hood Red Ink to the flower to make it pop a little.
I stamped the tree with Garden Green Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock before adhering to a layer of Basic Black Cardstock & then to the page.
For the Scallop Circles, I used one of the images from Circle Circus – have been wanting to use this set for something Christmas for so long – with Garden Green Ink, while the wording is in Tempting Turquoise Ink…. They were both punched using the Scallop Circle Punch.
The journalling was typed & printed onto Whisper White Cardstock, before laying onto a piece of Basic Black Cardstock & then to the page.
I used a couple of pieces of Basic Black Ribbon to look like the journalling & embellishments were hanging from the top.
I basically wanted to keep the page simple & clean – my style of scrapbooking, while just picking up the suttle colours in the photo – Riding Hood Red, Tempting Turquoise, Garden Green, Black & White.
