I was forced to go to my local scrapbook store to find some suitable paper as there was nothing in my stash that would work for this challenge. I know, I had to go to the scrapbook store...how ever did I manage. Once there, I stumbled upon the perfect paper quite quickly. The colors do not fade from light to dark in huge chunks, like is often seen on fabrics, but the dots are all variations of the same color, light to dark, so I thought this paper would work just fine.
I love the layered look of this page. This seems to be my go-to technique lately - layer it up, add differed patterns and colors. So fun.
Head on over to The Memory Nest today to see how the other members of the Design Team worked with this challenge. I was so curious to see how others included the ombre technique on their layouts and have really enjoyed seeing everyone's creative work.
Rachel. Beautiful take on the challenge. I love that little picture and totally understand what you mean by the moment being bittersweet!ReplyDelete
Thanks Leslie. My girl is growing up so fast and I just want to capture every moment of it. Thank goodness for scrapbooking.Delete
I hear you. I think you are doing an amazing job of capturing their moments. They are so sweet.Delete
What a cutie pie! I love how you put the definition of the smile on the layout. Her grin speaks volumes. :-)ReplyDelete
This is such a great way to remember a special moment! Kids do grow up too fast and you'll be so happy you captured all these moments in scrapbooking. I'm hopping over from Ladies Only Blog Share (my posts are #101 and 102)ReplyDelete
Oh I know. I was looking through older scrapbooks the other day and was almost in tears looking at the pictures and reading the journalling. I am so glad I have all these memories preserved.Delete
I love the toothless look in the front! Your scrapbook page made me smile too, as I used to be an avid scrapbooker (I do it digitally now), but there is something about handcrafting the page yourself!ReplyDelete
Thanks Michelle. I love the "cut and paste" approach to scrapbooking.Delete
Love your layout!ReplyDelete
