Oh My Goodness...it is December! Where has the year gone? I don't know about you, but The Silly Season has certainly crept up on me.
Today I am sharing a simple LO I created of my daughter and I. This photo was taken in an effort to make sure I appear more photos, especially with my kidlets. I want them to look back and remember that I was a part of their life too and not just behind the camera.
This LO started with the creative page cut from D-lish. I was originally going to use the whole lot but it was being covered up a lot by the photo, so I did my best to cut it to size. That way I still have more to play with later. (My cutting is so not perfect so please don't look too closely)
I found papers that I wanted to back each heart with and secured them with glue to the back of the creative cut. I then lay it where I wanted as a partial frame around my photo. I also mounted it with scraps of cardboard to add a bit of height to my LO.
I then added a sequin bow and a few small flowers as a simple accent to off set the 'heart frame'. These particular flowers are forget me nots - they are new to the store and like the sequin bows, they come in an array of gorgeous colours. My aim is to collect them all.
I then used a sticker I have had for a while as my title. I will admit, I was just playing with the sticker when it got stuck on my photo, I had the choice of ripping it off and starting the whole LO again or to leave it there. I opted to leave it.
I then felt like the LO needed a bit more of a pop. I wanted to sew, but time (and admittedly...energy) was lacking - so I simply grabbed some D-lish washie tape from a previous D-lish JAP kit to use as a border around my whole LO.
This particular tape comes from the Love like this JAP kit from February this year - I use it regularly and I still have tons of it left - washie tapes and JAP kits are simply the best value.
Well that is it for now.
Next time I see you it will be Christmas Eve, unless I see you before in The Scrap Suite. I hope that you can find some time in your busy day to come and check out my LO and say hi.
