Nov 26th 2012. Snow in Canada. THE moment i had been waiting for (let's be honest, i didn't go there for the beaches!). Obviously, i had to take a picture of my feet in the snow. And obviously it had to be one of the first photos i would scrapbook.
First thing i did was create the layering of paper that would create the frame for the photos and the title. I had also picked a pink background (from Amy Tan Ready Set Go collection) and was planning on adding mist and gems. Which ended up being a total failure. I did not like that final layout. Part of me didn't care. It had taken me so long, i din't want to start all over again. And part of me knew i HAD to do something.
So i took my frame and went looking for a new background. Found one. Decided some stitched arrows on the top would be lovely. Stitched a few. Then a few more. Obviously, it took forever. But i loved it. Added a few flowers and stars. And that was it. A layout i loved.
Who said scrapbooking was simple, eh?
