I haven't played in challenges for ages, but decided to have a go at a couple ths week to get the mojo flowing a little. The first one I have tackled in Just Add Ink Scrapbook Challenge #14, where we hadto use lace and ephemera. We all know I love a bit of lace, so here is what I came up with.
This is me and my beautiful family, embellished with the lovely Tea for Two Designer Series Paper and lots of lace and other goodies from the Artisan Embellishment Pack. I even included the two cards the lace was wound around. I distressed this, and also soaked the heart doiley in coffee to age it a bit (be careful when you do this as it is very delicate!). The quote is from the Feel Goods set in the new Stampin' Up! Seasonal Catalogue.
To add something meaningful to the page, I actually made the flowers from an old keepsake. My boys are IVF babies and last night while I was searching for some old x-rays, I came across lots of things I had kept from IVF days. These flowers were made from a brochure they gave us about coping with the emotional roller-coaster of IVF. It was a photocopied brochure and again I soaked it in coffee to age the paper.
Thanks for a great scrapbook challenge JAI!
Back soon with another creation,
