Hello! Thank you for hopping by my blog on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop. I am super excited as this is my first blog hop participation and I've had so much fun with my sketch interpretation.
I have had these photos forever!! My DD is now 14 (the baby in the photo) - they are pre digital, I don't know where the negatives are, they are too busy and the colours are awful - you can tell I didn't scrapbook then, or this would have been staged!!
However, my scrapbooking genes were obviously there as I thought to take a series of photos which now mean the world to me because of the story they tell. Numbered 1-7, they show how my darling son came home to meet his new baby sister, stared, gave her a kiss then ran to get the toy Piglet we had been keeping in her crib until she came - all spontaneously! It brought tears to my eyes then, and still does now, it was so sweet. But these were the photos, and I've been wondering how to scrap them.
So thank you Sketch Support for your fabulous 7 photo sketch which finally gave me inspiration, and to CKCB who made me create a pink kit (not my first port of call, but perfect for baby girls) as I now have a double LO telling the story that I love.
You can find the sketch here.
I took two sheets of Bazzill Basics white cardstock as my base. I then cut my photos down to 4x4 as the 3x3 wouldn't fit in what I needed to keep from these photos. I played with all sorts of bits and pieces from my kit, before settling on a melange of pink papers, a mix of Imaginisce (had it forever - an Easter paper on the reverse), Crate Paper Neighbourhood, not sure what the others are, a length of spotted ribbon, some chipboard from Crate and Basic Grey and added thickers, with gel pen 'sewing' on them, and some tiny MM stickers for my title. The journalling was done with a Souffle pen onto a Crate Neighbourhood journalling postcard which just fitted the bill perfectly.
Please head off to Jennifer's blog now on your hop. Thanks for hopping over here.
