Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd - REAL LIFE CAPTURED -
It is time for my weekly share for Scrapbook Nerd, and if you are a parent of a teenager then you will understand how hard it is to photograph them. Well at least my kids are! they are at the stage where the smile lasts 2 seconds, and then the frown last the day. So i decided to make lemonade out of lemons, and created this page about this so awesome moment in their lifes.
I started by using a cut file from The Cut Shoppe, and backed it with papers from Pinkfresh Studio's A Case of the Blahs collection. I truly love how on point this collection is especially when dealing with my failed days.
Before laying down the cut out on the mat (Bazzill embossed cardstock), I used a bit of Vicki Boutin's art crayon just to pop the colors of the stars. A bit of foam adhesive adds dimension on this page, and creates that soft shadow on the background.
The clusters around the picture are made up of stickers and ephemera from the collection, and also from the Mix2 and Let your Heart Decide, both from Pinkfresh Studio. A few extra details were added using the collection stamp.
For the title of this page, I used a combination of the collection's ephemera and alphas from the Mix 2 collection. A few extra stamped sentiments and some lines of journal complete this page,
I cannot but chuckle every time i see the picture, and i think having the stars around the picture just makes it sillier. Truly a clear representation of life with teenagers!
You can check all the materials used in this layout at Scrapbook Nerd, there are so many new things arriving daily!
