I can't remember the last time I made a scapbook page. Whenever I sit down to craft its always cards, so much so that the thought of doing a scrapbook page had become a little scary. Sarah does such beautiful work that I can't help but feel like that it is her 'domain' and I had better stick with cards. but .... we were talking the other night about how hobbies (like scrapbooking!) aren't about being the best or creating works of art all the time, its about preserving memories and having fun ... even when you know you aren't going to be the best. I was inspired to try again and here is my attempt. I don't know if this means I'll be scrapping a lot more in the future, but it does mean that I had a memory I wanted to preserve and I had lots of fun!

I machine stitched around the edges as well as distressed with my chocolate ink. The flowers are hand-made and I sprayed (lots!) of glimmer mist on the thickers to make them the colour I wanted. The colour they were originally did not quite match :-) The Rubons are from my (fast) decreasing supply of Chatterbox. If anyone knows where I could get some more I would be eternally grateful!

Can`t help feeling like it looks a lot like a card I just made . . . . 



SUPPLIES:
Making Memories Paper
Sassafrass Brads
