The My Mind's Eye Blog Challenge is posted on their blog. First, here is the sketch for the card. The theme is anything goes!
A simple sketch that really helped me in the design process. I used the
12 Days of Christmas for the card, since it was already sitting on my desk from a previous page. I love it when I can use scraps of paper for a card, and now will have this available for a teacher's or hostess gift.
I addeda bit of inking to the small banner strip. I simply removed the brad at the end, stamped, and decided to replace the brad with a staple. To finish the card, I tied the red twine around the bottom of the card.
Here is the sketch for the scrapbook page:
and my take:
This page took me about an hour to create. To be honest this is all the time I had available(; So, I stayed pretty true to the sketch, and was able to scrapbook these sweet photos of Roman from 2007. I could not find three small photos of him smiling , so I used a 4x6 in its place.
Detail of the chipboard elements from the 12 Days of Christmas.I also added three sticker snowflakes from American Crafts. I really loved these, and wish I had another package!(; I added the date with my computer, and printed it on the preprinted title.
I have to go now! I have been sick for three days, and have so much to get accomplished! I had to call in sick to work this morning, and I really do not like doing that. Lots of assignments due in the next few days, and I am working, too. Enjoy your day, and thank you for stopping by!
