This week we had the option to create any project we liked. I had my kids' pictures taken while we were visiting family in Utah last summer - I have a photographer there that I absolutely love so I couldn't pass up the chance to have her do a photo shoot. I decided on a location that's close to my parents' house, right at the foot of the Wellsville mountains. It's one of my favorite places in Cache Valley.
I've scrapbooked a couple of these photos but still have some work to do on the album, so I thought I'd get started there. I started with the Downtown Grunge templates (12x12) and here is my finished project:
I added stamped images from Watercolor Trio, Pedaling Past and Define Your Life sets. I also used an image from Hip and Handsome Overlays to give a subtle texture to the background.
Wanting to keep the picture the main focus of my page, I made sure to only use a couple of colored elements. I didn't want anything competing with the cutie on the page :) The paper is from the Sweet Details pack, and the other elements I pulled from Lucky Star and Vintage Trinkets.
Using the templates that come with the kits is a definite time saver! It was really easy to add my photo and a few embellishments. That's the kind of scrapbooking I like!
