Another day, another post. I am enjoying getting this album together. I have so many pages to scrap! I started telling my friend today what all albums I wanted to create (and ones that needed finished) and I started getting a little overwhelmed. She reminded me (and I agree) that it is for enjoyment – no pressure.
So, I have been trying to create “fresh” layouts. In the past I have saved a lot of ideas. I have been going through some ideas and making them my own. This is one of those.
I wanted to put the colors in the background that were in his shirt. I dug through my scrap box and found these papers. I cut strips that were the same width but different lengths. I then started laying them in order. I made sure I left enough room at the top for the numbers and I made sure they were high enough to be seen over the matted picture. (By the way, I love the sparkly chevron paper). I then put silver and sparkly blue numbers on top of the strips of paper in random number order. Finally I added a sticker that says “freshman” and one that says “cell phone, friends, study, sleep…..”.
That is it for this layout.
Hope to see you here tomorrow!
