Hello lovely friends!! I want to start by wishing everyone a beautiful mothers day.
I am sharing this layout I created of a special day we had last year at the California Museum of Natural History.
I fell in love with the new Treasure Map line by October Afternoon, but with three girly girls, I was a bit afraid to get all the fun embellishments, with no photos to coordinate. I was scrapbooking last week, when my daughter pulls this photo of us from that trip to show me. It was a traveling pirate exhibit, with real pirate treasures, and we of course needed to take the token family photo in all the pirate garb!!! And just like that a connection was made!
I wanted to play with the amazingly fun lines in the skull rock paper, and chose to highlight its fun pattern by fussy cutting a design from it and hand stitching a "string art" within it! I used two colors of string to help make the design pop.
sew fun banner tabs, such as this crazy fun skull and cross bones spot!
I LOVED the pirate boy flags in the banner pack, and was so excited to add the bright green color to my page with them! I also added a wooden triangle border sticker from the older public library line below my photo for just the right color contrast.
American Craft Thickers from the Craft Market line.
I hope everyone has an amazing day of celebration and love!!!
