I absolutely adore this photo of my niece. She is in single digits, and yet, she has a far cooler look than I had as a teenager. (Why were we in pastel Garanimals at this age?) The filter on this photo also brings back memories of photos taken in the 70’s. Mix that with that cute little face, and you get a picture that just has to be scrapped… in style.
For this layout I started with a page I found on Pinterest. You can find it here, at the “A Cherry on Top” website. I don’t have any affiliation with them, but they are one of the handful of online scrapbooking sites that I purchase from occasionally. Debbi did a beautiful job on the original. It is full of so many fantastic details. It is amazing!
For this layout, I chose to simplify the original. What can I say? I am a simple scrapper. Since I generally scrap 4 x 6 pictures, I replaced her 2 smaller photos with my single photo. I also used fewer embellishments. (Is anyone surprised?) Instead of going around each piece of paper drawing a black outline, I opted for inking the edges. I omitted some small strips of paper at the bottom left of the layout because I didn’t think it needed anything there. It isn’t as fancy as Debbi’s, but the design is still fantastic!
One thing that I really enjoyed about this layout is that I was able to use up some old products and scraps. The star papers along with the berry colored paper are all scraps. All of the embellishments on this page are several years old. I completely forgot that I even had those sunglasses. I just happened upon them as I was searching through my dimensional stickers. The only thing new on this page is the berry and gold letter stickers. It just goes to show that you don’t need new products to make amazing pages.
