Hi there, blog readers! I am popping in to share a layout I did for the lace challenge over at "Yotzot mehakavim" - an Israeli challenge site. I pulled out a picture of Lila looking in the mirror before leaving the hotel room for one of her synchronized ice skating competitions. The picture was taken at 6:16am and that is the title of the layout.
Supplies: patterned paper, butterflies (K&Company), chipboard (frames - Lil' Davis, flourishes - Maya Road), gold leafing pen (Krylon), flowers (Prima), glitter cardstock (Martha Stewart), jewels (Marcela), lace (wide - unknown, ribbon - Chatterbox), journaling cards (Jenni Bowlin), Silhouette Cameo
I found a package of small chipboard frames and painted them gold with Krylon gold leafing pen. I had it since I took a Year To Remember class with Heidi Swapp in 2007 and it still works. I arranged the frames on the page and backed them with pieces of patterned paper. They look a little like mirrors, don't you think? The papers and the butterflies are from an old kit by K & Company. I added two Prima flowers to the cluster on the left and handmade lace rosette. The lace is not the same as was used for the dress but the blue yo-yo flower and the red heart are made from the same fabric as the dress. I snatched some leftovers when I had a chance.
I journaled about Lila's long day at the competition and added another lace ribbon and a chipboard flourish. The 6:16am title is cut with Silhouette from Martha Stewart glittery cardstock.
I have hundreds of pictures from Lila's competitions but they are mainly staying on my hard drive. I wanted to make an album for each skating season but meanwhile it is good to get at least some pictures scrapbooked and some stories told.
Before I leave you I want to wish a happy Hanukkah to all my blog readers that celebrate this week. I hope your candles are bright, your dreidels are spinning fast and your sufganiyot are sweet!
