I made a layout!!! Finally!!! I have been itching to scrapbook, but it takes me so much ore time to do a page then it does to make a card… So sadly, with all of my commitments, the scrapbooking has fallen by the wayside. But when I saw Jen’s Wild Flower Wednesday Challenge (to distress your project), I knew I HAD to play along!!! I love to distress! Plus, a few challenges back, I was lucky enough to win 3 digis of my choice! Wait ‘till you see what I did! Here’s 2 of the 3 digis I chose: This is Rye and Skater Sage. Aren’t they so handsome? Well, here’s why I chose them. First, I don’t have a lot of boy stuff. Second, Skater Sage looks an awful lot like my Phoenix. And third, Rye is wearing one of Phoenix’s fave outfits! Wanna see how I made my digis look just like Phoenix??? Please click on the photos to see them bigger. I cut off the heads on both digis and swapped them! Doesn’t it look just like him now? I am so happy with how Sage/Rye turned out! And yes, I dressed Phoenix specifically to take these pictures! How could I not? Plus, it is one of his favorite shirts! So I distressed this page in subtle ways. I inked the green cardstock with Antique Linen and Weathered Wood Distress Ink. Then I tore up some of the paper with my Edge Distresser. I scribbled white on my letters, and scratched some blue around the negative corners that the paper and pictures created. This was such a fun page to make! Especially because of the adorable digis I got to play with! Now I want to go and make some more!!! I just hope the kids sleep long enough so I can do it!!! Have an inspiring day!!!
What a cute! GREAT layouts Alison. I feel you with the commitments. Have a great weekend.
