I've been meaning to have a go at doing a scrapbook page for ages and I finally got my act together and gave it a whirl. I quite enjoyed it, as I was wandering down memory lane while I was doing it to. The photo's are from our holiday in South Africa from 4 years ago. My birthday is on New Year's Eve and I decided I wanted to see the sun for a change, especially as it was one of those milestone birthdays ( no numbers mentioned !) The main photo you can see is me and my other half cooling off in a plunge pool at the back of our lodge on a game reserve. We thought we were going to melt it was that hot !
I've used Spiced Marmalade, Dried Marigold and Rusty Hinge DI then stamped with a mixture of Katzelkraft and Tanda stamps.
The tag and chain are Tim Holtz Ideaology and the lettering is stamped using one of those cheap cubes of alphabet stamps. Fortunately, I didn't need the letter 'd' as somehow I've managed to mislay it !
The flower was punched from Grunge Paper and given the DI treatment then I added some beads that I was kindly given by a lady who does alot of african beading, so they seemed very appropriate. The lettering down the side is made using my Olivia alphabet and the flourish is a Marianne die. The gorgeous paper is from the Tim Holtz Lost and Found paper stack.
I'm entering this page into the following challenges:
