Beautiful - Scrap Our Stash #27

I LOVE playing along with Scrap Our Stash.  Their challenges really make me did deep...  and when I say that, I mean both physically (through my stash) and mentally (challenges are out of the box).  Love it!

This month...

My take...

B - Baker's Twine
R - Rub-on
A - Arrows
D - Doodle
S - Silhouette Cut File

I came across this really cool triangular frame cut file while searching the archives of the Silhouette library.  I have a monthly membership and can cut just about anything you could ever want or need.

Next, I had to find some pictures that would fit in the frame.

I tried many different BG paper's but I wanted a monochromatic look to the page with just a few pops of color, so this BG spoke to me... because it matched the water color in the photos. 

Another close up...

Thanks for stopping by.

Perfect 10 - Challenge Yourself #19

It's an ANYTHING GOES kind of month over at Challenge Yourself.  Isn't that the way it should be since summer is just getting started?  My kiddos have 2 more days of school and at least for the first week or so, it's going to be "anything goes".

I knew that I wanted some texture on this page, so I started with modeling paste and a stencil.  As that was drying, I searched for what colors I wanted to play with and came up with this teal/yellow combo and loved it.  I knew the photo would pop off the page against it.

Started with a little bit of misting and then started layering the scraps over it until I was pleased with the look.

I added the black washi to ground the page because after I placed the photo, the BG kinda disappeared.

As always, I started by searching my scraps been to find bits and pieces to play with.

This photo was taken just last weekend at Sawyer's 10th birthday party.  I can't believe he is double digits!

Next up, the title...  what could be more perfect than "Perfect 10".  If you've been around my page long enough, you know that Sawyer is a competitive gymnast.  A 10 is not a perfect score anymore, but still fits because we all know what it means.

 Thanks for stopping by!
