It’s Banana Split Sunday Challenge with 2RedBananas.com! This week’s challenge is to use some kind of gem, jewel, pearl, dew drop, etc. on a card, layout, or whatever kind of paper creation you want to do. Please stop by the 2RB blog and check out the challenge.
I decided to go with a layout this week, instead of a card. I am so hopelessly behind in my scrapbooking. I’m trying to do a year-of-firsts album for my baby (who turned 1 a couple weeks ago), and this layout is for her album.
I used Making Memories DP from the Chloe’s Closet collection as the background. It was so cute I didn’t really need to do much to it. I adhered pearls to the center of each flower on the paper. A mat made of Chloe’s Closet DP was adhered to the background paper and a piece of double-sided ribbon was wrapped across both pieces and tied in a bow, then the photo was adhered to the mat. The title and little journal strip were printed on cream CS, trimmed and adhered to the layout. The title was first matted on a piece of Chloe’s Closet DP that was trimmed with scallop edged scissors. I also used Making Memories’ magnetic date stamp to add the date to the lower right corner with Chalk Ink.
I hope you’ll stop by 2RB’s blog and play along with us.
