Hi Everyone! I am proud to say that I made 2 layouts in one day! Yay! Check my other layout on my previous post. Why am I proud of it? Typically, I do 2 layouts a MONTH, therefore, creating 2 layouts in a day is quite an accomplishment! LOL!
Here is a little info on my scrapbook layout. . . .it was a little time consuming to create this layout because with all the scrapbook papers and cardstock I had, I could not find a red scrapbook paper or cardstock that had a similar tone. It would be either too orange, too pink, too burgundy. . .I am sadly lacking in red papers.
Well, after digging through a ton of scrapbook papers, I finally found 2 that were similar in tone. Actually, the red/white polka-dot band going across my layout came from a cardboard package. It was the backing of a package of scrapbook embellishments I had purchased. It matched my scrapbook papers really nicely. Hey. . .you gotta improvise! LOL! If it works, hey. . .why not!
The pictures are of my daughter and her cousin Melissa when they were little. They were best buddies back then and very close. They did everything together. Sadly, as they grew up and attended different middle school and high school, they barely talked to one another unless we got together for a family gathering. It was sort of awkward for them because we sort of expected them to be close but they were polar opposites in personality and interest. The picture is of the fun times they once had together.
