Can't stop scrapping

Now I am fairly confident that by now you know I don't mean that I am fighting a lot :) I have definately got my scrapping bug back and have on my search for inspiration and ideas completed a page as a challenge on the Scrapology blog Here. I was already planning to scrap this photo and I love using decoupage on my pages so I thought this would meld with the Dimension challenge.
The papers are from Basic Grey Infuse range using the pink as the base, the stripped paper to cover the chipboard and I cut a section from the corner of the floral paper to make an explosion of flowers :) The Circular chipboard was covered and then I had to cut out a section to fit the photo into the circle so I used the cut out part to help raise the floral corner. I ended up having to use 3D sticky pads on top of the swirls that went under the decoupage as they were less raised. I used Bazzil flowers a few brads and some cream paper flowers with a beige ribbon to make the flowers at the torn sections.
Anyhow I am in love with the page even though it has a photo of me and not one of the kids lol so I hope you like it too :)

(p.s. the yellowy colour around the edges is my dining table not part of the LO maybe I should paint it so it goes better with my LO's when I photograph them lol)


  1. this is oh so cute... and I see Kari in this pic.. or you... either way it works...

  2. Thanks hunni it is me although Kari often thinks old photos of me are her and wants to know where I am hiding the clothes from the pic lol Poor little girl looks just like me I keep telling her to save for plastic surgery now!
