Hey crafty friends! Welcome back to another anything goes challenge with Southern Girls. For this challenge I decided to again work on some of my May goals and use my Simple Stories Vintage Bliss 6×6 paper pad to made this cute cousins scrapbook layout.
It was perfect timing when I was making this because my friend Khristina posted a video where she was using a 6×6 paper pad and 2×2 squares. It was instant inspiration. I inked the 2×2 squares with picked raspberry distress ink from Tim Holtz. It’s a new to me color, and quickly becoming a favorite.
The hard part was how to embellish the page though because I had not one embellishment from the actual collection. I went digging around in my colored embellishment boxes, which I’ve noticed really have very little in them, and found just a few things that matched well and went with that. I figured a little something is enough since there was so many different patterned papers.
The photo, the most important part, is from my wedding. We’ll be married 15 years next month! The cuties in the photos are my sister (11), my cousin Danny (11) and my cousin Beth (9). It’s hard to believe they are all grown up now. My sister is married for almost five years, Danny is working on a second degree and Beth is married with a baby of her own. To think that our son is the same age Beth was…ugh….makes me feel old!
I tried to get a piece of flair on here too since that I also one of my monthly goals, but none of them fit quiet right Well, I think that’s it for now. I’m gonna sign off and try to get working on those goals. Until next time…stay crafty!
