    Engaged and Happy

    Traditional Scrapping Challenge: Back in the day, I loved to use curvy borders and colored mattes from coordinating papers. I used to punch out letters and use sticker alphas. I loved the wood die cut embellishments, but rarely used them because they were so expensive. Since this is a fantasy page, I added a couple, plus shadows because traditional paper pages would have had some dimension. I even sized the photos to 3.5 x 5 because that is the size I used most often.

    I was never a huge paper scrapper, but back in the day, I loved to use curvy borders and colored mattes from coordinating papers. I used to punch out letters and use sticker alphas.

    Little Sunflower

    I don't even begin to know how you extracted and layered this photo, but it is wonderful. Love how you balanced the busyness of the sunflowers with the yellow watercolor.

    What a great way to use the flags! I see a scraplift in my future - my niece just gave me some photos of her baby in the pool for the first time. Love the background combined with the alpha, too!

    Isn't that the truth about the photographer never being in the photos? 📸 I found one pretty lousy pic of dad with my daughter when she was a few weeks old, and he was wearing a white t-shirt and sweats, clearly having just woken up - probably to a screaming baby - haha. He would roll over in his grave if I posted a pic of him so under-dressed on a public forum, so I didn't. 🙄

    After looking for a decent photo of my dad by himself for an hour (he passed before digital and was the photographer in the family, so guess who isn't in any pics), I resorted to scrapping something of husband playing role of dad at our daughter's wedding. I need to seriously dig into some boxes of old family photos stored in the basement - that will be my next project after I get these crazy wedding photos done - LOL. Long explanation, but I am more than shocked (and a little distraught) that I couldn't find any good images of dad by himself - or even with my daughter as an infant - in my own albums. Anyway, here is Dad & Daughter Dance.
