Good Morning & Happy Saturday!!!

I chose the colors in the necklace posted above to make my creation for this week.  I've been in a scrapbooking mood lately & looking at De's pages inspired me to actually post mine.  This has also been one of my goals---to actually POST my scrapbook pages so yay me for accomplishing at least one of them!!  I apologize for the picture.....that's one of the reasons I don't post my scrapbook pages--it's really hard for me to get a great pic!!!  The pink hues in the necklace sparked my interest & I immediately knew which picture of my daughter I was going to use!  I started my layout as a 6x6 page and progressed it into the 12x12 you see.  I challenged myself to NOT use DSP & only my stamps, Big Shot and embellishments.  I embossed the swirl from the Baroque Motifs ss in various places on my pages (there is a sister page to this) and used my Big Shot to add texture for visual interest.  The finishing touch was the addition of the pearls around Bianca's photo--I just LOVE that picture of her when she was 3 months old!!!!!  I hope you've enjoyed my creation this week & for even more inspiration; please check out the rest of the Design Team's work:

  4. What a gorgeous page, Jackie! The pic of your daughter is definitely one to cherish, and I love the scalloped circle with pearls round it; the colour scheme is yummy too. And you have such a great LO I'm glad you didn't use DP but left it for the embossing to make a gentle statement. Brilliant!

  11. Oh my goodness, I wanna pinch her little cheeks! I'm guessing she probably doesn't look like that anymore. :( I love baby faces, I wish they could be babies longer! Ok, enough about me! ;) Such a pretty layout, JAckie! I love the colors and I didn't even notice there was no DP until you pointed it out! Awesome job!

  17. What a fabulous progressive page - so often you can see that it was a 6x6 page with extra "padding". With yours I had to go back and look for the 6x6 - fab job! And what a cutie your daughter is!
