You know when you build something up in your mind.... your waiting for it... and then it happens.... you want it to be sooo perfect! Well I was that way about the line from Crate Paper. Silly I know.... its just paper! But it was by far my most favorite release this CHA. I have had so many ideas and I wanted to do the paper justice!
So here is what I came up with. Its my first with this line... and it won't be my last! Since its been so gloomy here, its been hard to get a good picture of the layout... so this is the best I could do.
As soon as I saw this trim from Making Memories I knew what I wanted to do with it. I really like how it tuned out as well. I also used some vintage actions of the photos to make them look older and grungier (is that a word?) to match the feeling of the papers. The embellishment in the bottom corner looks like a ships wheel to me.... and how fitting that these pics were taken on a boat! lol.
Used a super old Maya Road word title here... inked it then added some glossy accents over the top. Turned out really well!
Got an e-mail from Angela yesterday that our design team kits are ready over at Scrappy Chic! I really can't wait to go get it. All the new Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology collection came in.... and I need it ALL! I hope to pop over sometime this weekend before its all scooped up :)
(Mary or Cindy... please save me some of the ruffled darling ribbon and the fabric flower darlings!!!!)
