Making a Gift for Family...

A little while back my nephew sent me a whole bunch of beautiful engagement photos of him and his beautiful fiance (now, just recently, his wife!)....I just now had a little time to start putting together some layouts with them.  I plan on doing a few of them and framing them as a gift for them.  For this layout I used some of my all time favourite chipboard pieces from Dusty Attic, the Baroque Frame - Square, the Hinges and the Sentiment words (Love)....and of course the perfect papers for this photo was from the 'In Love' collection from Websters Pages!  The quote I used here I thought so perfectly reflected the photo, it says
"There is only one thing I want to change about you" he said, "Your last name"

Here are a few close-up shots of the page.   
Each month the Websters Pages design team gals are asked to do a project that is inspired by the Guest designer for the month, and this months guest designer is Jennifer Gallacher, she has a beautiful clean style of scrapping (a bit different from mine lol!) but I really loved this cute handmade embellishment she added to her page, it was a folded pin-wheel design (You can find Jen's layout at the Websters Pages Inspire Me site), so I used that as my inspiration to create the folded fabric blooms on this page (above).  I shared a tutorial a little while back on how to make these folded blooms, if you want to check it out you can find it HERE

And here are some pic's of the Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces I used to embellish this page..... 



While I was working away at some layouts I just couldn't resist playing with some of the NEWEST Dusty Attic chipboard pieces!  There is a new collection of Bamboo designs in the May/June release, as well as a cute new Flourish #8 and a new Hanging Sign #2 (I also used some of my favourite Chicken Wire Panel chippies and the Grass Cluster #1 chipboard pieces.......

The photo's I scrapped here were some I took a few years ago of my youngest daughter Meagan playing mini-golf, this little one plays by her own set of rules, it's almost always her turn, she can take as many shots as she wants (but they always add up to '1'), and I just had to giggle at her form!  ....The papers I used for this page are from the Websters Pages 'Game On' collection, I thought these playful papers would make the perfect backdrop for these photos.  Here are a few close-ups.... 


Above is a photo of all the different types of chipboard pieces I used for the 'Mini-Golf' layout.  If you are interested in seeing some of the newest chippies for this month from Dusty Attic you can find them HERE.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my latest pages.....and hope you'll come back at the end of the week, I've got some really fun video tutorials to share with you all!!!  Thanks for stopping by! xx
