Scrapbooking, SeaBlown Hair

SeaBlownHair1
 
Wow it's Monday again!  Here is my page for the Memory Nest.  I normally don't get around to scraping pictures of events and moments that happened anywhere close to present day, but this one is an exception.  I really wanted to scrap these photos from our Oregon beach adventure last week.  We had such awful weather, but I got some darling photos despite the pouring rain.

As you can see, I altered the sketch a bit to fit three horizontal photos.  I tried to use paper layers to help play on the two vertical photo spots from the sketch.

I love the pink to purple to blue in this paper.  It pink reminds me of the hope we had for warm beach weather and the blue is the actual reality of cold rainy beach days.

I realized that I have so many wonderful and bright beach embellishments, but most didn't seem to fitting for my page.  I couldn't resist this popsicle though!

I used a bit of washi tape on this page.  I have way to much of the stuff and can't seem to get it used up!

Scrapbooking, Blanket Obsession Continues On

Hey I just wanted to share this layout I did for the Memory Nest real quick.  My in-laws are coming into town and I've got a lot to do plus we are driving down to meet them in Portland, so I'm crazy busy.

This page has lots of layers and a bunch of them consist of colored velum and transparencies.  The page looks fairly clean, but all the layers gives it some extra pizazz.  Overall, I'm really happy with the colors.  They are based off of my little guy's blanket, even though you can't tell because the photos are all in black and white.  I think this turned out to be a fun page for my little guy and his blanket.

And here is the sketch that inspired my page!
