Slowly but surely, I'm scrapping again! Oh, how I missed it! I must admit, this layout did NOT turn out like I'd planned. In fact, I almost tore it up and started again!
This is a photo I took a couple of weekends ago of my newest granddaughter, Maggie, and my DD, Kimberly. The layout started out as simple and I just can't seem to quit adding things to it! LOL! The bottom edge is punched with an EK Success edge punch. Then I punched some holes at the top of each scallop and threaded my ribbon through the holes and kinda scrunched it. Then I added pink "robin's egg" embellies between each place that I threaded the ribbon. The "daughter" is a transparency layered over a tag I found in my stash. I layered a few blooms and added bling centers. I softened the edges of the photo in PSE8. The definition was also a transparency that I attached with bling. Then...since I couldn't leave well enough alone, I decided to add a little doodling around the edges. I doodled with brown pen, then added the pink with my Copic marker and tiny bling centers for the flowers I drew. BTW...the black border was added digitally so that the white edges of the layout would show.
Journaling is tucked behind the top of the photo and reads:
One thing a mother never gets enough of is hugs and kisses. There's nothing sweeter than kissing your precious daughter. I remember the sweet kisses I got from you Kimmer, and now I see that you enjoy the same moments with your daughter. It's a very special thing…those kisses. Enjoy them and steal as many as you can!
