Thank you for stopping by from Erica's amazing blog! I hope you are enjoying the hop!
I know, I know.....HUGE GASP!!!! Can you believe it!?!? I have done a TRADITIONAL page...not a lick of MDS on this page! What has come over me:)
I LOVE the colour combination on this page and really think it makes the photos pop. I used Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party and Elegant Eggplant. It's hard to see in the photo but the Wisteria and Eggplant are textured cardstock.
I created a border strip using the heart edge embossing folder...love this, it just adds a subtle, yet needed element to the page.
The hearts are cut out using the Heart framelits and then lined with Pool Party DSP. You can see in the close up, I did some sewing on the oustide edge of the page as well as along the strips of paper running vertically on the page. The heart embellishment lines up with the strip behind and I think just picks up the purple on MacKenzie's sweet shirt.
I hope you like today's REAL scrapbook page! I enjoyed making this and do miss the "traditional" scrapbooking, but the reality of my world is I'd be still working on Mark's baby book (and he's 10) if I did it this way:)
Enjoy your day! Thank you for stopping by! Take care,
