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:
