Besties….

Well, I made this layout this morning for Stephanie’s challenge at Debs.
The rules for the challenge are:
The theme of this challenge is Friendship.
The page must inlcude a photo (any size) of a great friend (it can be a family member or a pet if you like). You can be in the photo.
Make the page as if you are giving it to the friend to tell them just what they mean to you (even if you are keeping it).
You MUST include lots of journalling with at least some (if not all) hand journalling!!I would love to see a stamped title or maybe some stamped journalling.
The base paper is from Making Memories.
I have cut the photo into a long rectangle cropping the unwanted background.
I have mounted the photo on a 7 gypsies overlay.
The cutouts are from Kaisercraft Bohemian Thread papers.
I decorated them with fern leaves, Green Tara and Prima flowers,
Kaisercraft Pearls and Kaisercraft corner bling.
The ribbon is from my stash.
The star blings is what Lexie sent me in the RAK
I have used alpha stamps for the title and brackets and little people are chipboards.
Brackets are painted with Kindly Glitz Aqua and the people are inked using
Tim Holtz’s Distress ink.
I hand wrote the journalling as Aditi told me.

Lost and Found!!!

I thought I lost my mojo!!
Although I had all my purchases with me, I was not motivated to sit for a layout!!
Weird!!! Weird!!!
I just thought I will make a layout irrespective of how I feel.
Maybe just sit on the table and go through my old stash and make a layout.
No sketch, no challenges, nothing.. starting with a clean slate.
Thats why I picked up Fancy Pants The Daily Grind Chalkboard paper as the base.
Picked a photo randomly. This is the photo of my mom, dad and my brother.
I rounded the corners and then mounted it on a piece of blue card stock.
a yellow ribbon and wrapped it around on the bottom and tied the ribbon.
Then I picked up the Fancy Pants Holly Molly Snowflakes paper.
Lots of picking!!! Yup, just picked and picked randomly!!!lol!
Wanted to use the bright pink side.
Cut a medium rectangle piece and round the edges using the corner punch.
I placed this piece at the right hand centre of the base paper.
Mounted the blue cardstock with the photo on the rightside of the pink paper.
Again I had the leftover piece of black zigzag paper,
which I added at the bottom of the blue cardstock.
I then used a circle punch and punched two circles out of my bits and pieces of stash.
Placed them as shown in the layout, half tucked under the pink paper.
Took a rectanglar piece of yellow cardstock tucked under the pink paper in thet op rightside.
I then doodled using my pink gel pen. added a black flower punched out of the flower punch I received from Shell. Added a green pearl in the centre.
The journalling tag is made out of a piece of green paper cut to the size of 7 gypies overlay
and I used dymo to make the journalling words.
I loved the tiny pegs, I bought few months ago.
I used them to clip the paper and the overlay together.
Flowers are from Prima, Mulburry paper flower, Green Tara.
Brads and buttons from my stash.
Just to add texture I used White Slick Kindy Glitz to doodle around the pink paper
and also the large doodle on the top.
For the title, I have used Heidi Swapp “Family” stamp, to stamp on a yellow piece of paper,
cut it out and inked the edges.
I am pretty happy with the outcome.
A nice bright piece of color on the chalkboard.
Afterall, my mojo did not go anywhere.lol!!!
