I had these beatiful B&W photos of my girls taken by their dad which capture a bit of their personality and bond. This cover page is apt for what the scrapbook is about as well as the showing my kids simply as who they are....growing up. This is my 7th layout and I've got such a loooong way to go. You know, much as I'd love to give this away, I think it'll be tough as well.
This has been inspired by many of the DT gals work including:
- use of twine
- use of red
- black matting
- use of chalk (well, it was by a DT gal but not quite for this week's PDCC)
I was going to do a dry-brush approach but don't really have the right red paint so I ended up using red chalk (with fingers - messy fun!) which I saw in one of the DT gals blogs....this is why you go visiting DT gals' blogs. My chalks are hardly ever dug out of storage so it was good to have the inspired nudge to do so.
