My Kids on the ROCK!

This month I used colors! OK, OK and Black, but everything goes with black!

I tend to go to earthy tones and use distressing a lot in my crafting. But this month, our guest DT, Kerry gave us an awesome layout to lift!

So, since my son had on a red t-shirt and overalls. My daughter in white with a black sequined skirt. I found the perfect papers in my stacks! I turned the direction of the sketch/layout to fit my pictures.
I didn't journal yet! The lighting could have been better! But this month was flying by and I wanted to make sure I got this post up! 

The photos were taken before my son's 3th birthday photo shoot. 
It was the 1st studio pictures my kids had done together on the Rock! 
To Newfoundlanders, they proudly call the island of Newfoundland the "ROCK"! 
And how fitting that the prop for this occasion was a rock! Which was totally coincidental!

Here is Kerry's page:

There is still time to play along! Just link your layout on the sidebar!

Another DT Reveal for March

It is my turn to reveal my take on this month's challenge at XOXO Scrapbooking!  Our guest designer, Kerry, created a beautiful layout for us to lift this month!  I enjoyed working with the triangles and all the little details Kerry used on her page.  Here is Kerry's work:

This is what I created:

It is funny to me that after I take a picture and then upload it that I realize I need to fix something.  In this case, it was my banners (too big) and my title (just off).  So I adjusted my layout to create this:

Better.  However, since I lifted and moved my letters, I left behind a bit of distressing.  So to even out the look, I grabbed those orphaned sticker letters in my stash and applied them all over the white background paper.  Then I removed them.  Now the white paper is evenly distressed and nothing looks out of place.  A new use of alphabets - AND the best part was that I was able to toss an empty alphabet sheet in the trash!  YAY!

I hope that you are able to join us in this challenge.  The links close on March 31st.

Materials Used: We R Memory Keepers cardstock, cardstock, scrap paper, silk flowers, glitter brads, My Mind's Eye - Lush 2 Turquoise rhinestones, Snap - Flair, Paper Trunk - Carson alphabet, unknown manufacturer of sticker, and metal hearts.
