Overcoming Scrappers Block
I have been trying to scrapbook this photo for a year and a half! Such a special event, that I wanted the page to be perfect. I cut some lace paper, and flowers and kept pulling out the paper, and photo and then putting it back. Something was just not right.
So here is how I overcame my scrappers block: first I tried a challenge. I found this blog called Show Us Your Stuff and decided to give there March sketch challenge a try.
I also had to use a number and a hand made item in the sketch. Since, this photo is from a 90th birthday, that was an easy title! I hope this meets the rules, as no one said the number could not be spelled out! And you know I love to make my own embellies. I made the red flower with the blue and white center with paper and the red rolled rose with felt.
Second, I changed my paper. I pulled back out the photo and some favorite paper. The card stock is Close to My Heart and one of my all time favorites. I love the look of black, cream, tan and red together. So, elegant and timeless. Then when I put the photo on it I noticed the blue flowers in my Mother-in-Laws blouse and tried adding some blue buttons to match.
Now I am happy with this page and happy to have this special birthday scrapped! Thanks Show Us Your Stuff for the inspiration and the chance to win! Check out the Show Us Your Stuff blog for more great flowers!
