Three days of LOAD rolled into one blog post!
Here is Day 22. A red/white/blue color challenge…forget which country’s flag now. I used pictures from the UK pavilion in Epcot. We had a quick little photo shoot with the phone booths. I bought this Pink Paislee Switchboard paper and die cuts two years ago specifically for these pictures. Glad I finally got the page done!
Day 23~ I have no idea why I picked these pictures for Day 23, but it was a fun layout for me to put together using Basic Grey Adrift collection.
Day 24~ The prompt was Culture – Sports. Naturally I chose baseball LOL. These pictures are from last summer. Mike took me to a game for my birthday and we had excellent seats by the on deck circle for my team. I am so glad I took so many pictures of David Ortiz! This upcoming season will be his last. Hoping to make it to one game to bid him farewell. I am getting great use of the Doodlebug Home Run collection!
Thanks for stopping by!
Getting down to the wire now, two days left of LOAD! This page is from last Sunday and I used the Week 2 sketch at ScrapMuch.
I worked on this very late at night…wish I had thought to ink some of the strips in the background to make them stand out more. Everything, except the title lettering, is from the Basic Grey Max & Whiskers collection.
Here is the sketch~
I will be back later with another post of layouts!
I’m still on track with LOAD, just not posting them here daily. This page was created for LOAD as well as several other challenges. I used Sketch #99 at Sketch-N-Scrap, the color challenge for Lasting Memories Challenge #280 and my group’s Office Space challenge (to include something you would find in an office on your page, either on the paper or embellishment).
I picked pictures from one of my favorite Disney rides, Spaceship Earth. I just love this scene and I think after 6 trips, these are the best pictures I have taken of it.
In the journaling I talked about the part computers have played in my life in recent years. I pulled the title from having the huge computers in the photos and added a laptop stamp from Gina K Designs for the small part. I thought it was a neat idea. I used Basic Grey’s Aurora collection which I purchased specifically for Epcot Future World pictures. The colors worked well for the Lasting Memories challenge.
Here is the sketch (which I rotated to fit my pictures better)~
and the color palette~
I hope to be back later with another page!
We had a nice quiet Valentine’s Day at home and since today’s prompt is food, I decided to scrapbook our day. Not sure when I’ve scrapbooked pictures so quickly!
I used the February Sketch from Paper Issues and it’s my second entry for my group’s Old/New challenge. I mixed Basic Grey’s Sugar Rush from 2009 and J’Adore from a year or two ago.
I added hearts using an MFT stencil and distress inks in the upper left corner. I used a Simon Says Stamp stencil with tiny hearts on the bottom right.
Here is the sketch~
Have a great night!
