Tickets for 3

Monday, December 23, 2013

Well, we've made it this far into the month, there are only a few days left until the big day. Are you ready? Or just ready for it to be over? My December was super busy, as I'm sure everyone else's has been as well.  I did find some time to scrapbook. Not a lot of time, but just enough to get some pages finished for some challenges.

Speaking of challenges, here is my second reveal for ScrapStuff'z Inspired by.

The inspiration photo:

 Tickets for 3

First of all, I used sketch #109 from Inspired Blueprints.  I needed a little starting point to get my page going.  I liked this sketch because it had a lot of square elements, like the photo.  When I looked closely at our inspiration photo, I saw that everything in it is related to Christmas, in some way.  I also liked that the photos were overlapping and were matted.  That is how I got to my page. The photos are of us at The Nutcracker Ballet, which is also related to Christmas. I then matted the photos. The washi tape down the center gives them the appearance of being over lapped.

I also chose some design and embellishments from 123 Get Scrappy.  In this months grid, I have a lot of options. So you can look at this page and see the color green (paper), scalloped edges (misted background and tag over photo) and staples (attaching small red heart vellum).  The other way to look at it is numbers (in title), baker's twine (attached to journal tag) and Scalloped edges.  It all worked together to help me create a page I really like, that shares a short family story.

I'm glad you stopped by to see my creative view of our  ScrapStuff'z Inspired by photo. Please, come show us how you were inspired as well.
