Scrapbook Page

It's been too long again! Soooo busy! Lots of cards but too little blogging! Special thanks to Annie for the nice comments yesterday which got me spurred to add some new stuff again!

Not usually a scrapper on the full 12x12 scale but I created this page at the Tourc'h 2 Scrap group evening a few weeks ago: I scratched a photo and only replaced it yesterday. It follows a sketch (info and another example here) with so much detail on it: I hope it doesn't look too fussy. I really like how it's come out but the photo seems different: In fact I think that's one of the reasons I haven't blogged so much lately - I've been disappointed with the photos in comparison to the real thing. Anyhow, no prizes for guessing this is our granddaughter: The first pics from when she was in hospital: Three days in a baby unit hence all the tubes! Since had news from my husband's oldest: Second grandchild will be arriving in September!!!Used: Papermania card for backing, mats and the circle; pearlescent card from Diamond Card Craft, tags, which are inked with Brilliance 'Pearly Orchid', and flourishes from Debbie's die cuts; flowers from Imaginesce and Papermania, brads and gems also Papermania, Doodlebug rub-ons, 3D stickers from Jolee's and/or Dovecraft; Dylon 3D pearl paint; Cuttlebug 'Harmony' alphabet cut from same pearlescent card, inked with Brilliance and covered with holographic glitter glue; ric-rac, paper lace and textured paper from stash.


  1. OH! I've seen this page 'for real', and it's a real beauty!

    Glad to see you blogging again, Karen, and congrats on the forthcoming grandchild! Hope all goes well for future-Mum :)

  2. Karen, I think you have done an amazing job for not being a scrapper. To me it is beautiful. Wonderful layout, colors, and embellishing!!
