Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd  -  CHERISH  -

Hi there!

This week the entire Scrapbook Nerd DT was challenged to create a project about a memory of ourselves from the past.   Well, when we moved to Canada over 25 years ago, we lost most of our pictures that record our childhood, only a few survived.  So i pulled one of my beloved pictures of my mom with my sister and I (circa 1978) to create this project.

For the background, a bit of black acrylic paint was smeared so that it will bring all the details of the title and embellishments.  A few droplets of gold and white ink complete the background, and then set aside to dry.

The title was then built using a cut file from the Silhouette store.  It was enlarged so that it fit across the width of the page (about 9 in).  All the letters of the title were then backed with papers from the Vintage Girl collection from Photoplay paper.

Next, the same paper collection was used to create a few paper flowers that serve as decoration for the page -once again using a Silhouette Store cut file-.    A few vellum petals were added to the flowers to soften the layers, and are held together by a gold brad.   The leaves come from a Just Nick Studio cut file and were also cut from a paper from the collection.

To assemble the page,   the title was propped with some foam adhesive, and then the picture was tucked behind the center letters.   The flowers were then placed in clusters around the title and the picture.  Some stickers from the Vintage Girl collection, and Jen Hadfield's sitcker book were placed within the clusters to bring some more detail to the picture and the clusters.   A few lines of journal completed this page:

Though the page is filled with lots of large details, and a bit off the usual look of my pages, I am totally in love of what the end result of this page is.   The focus is centered on the title and the picture,  with lots of soft details.   Now it is time to frame it, and place it in our home!

Remember to stop by the Scrapbook Nerd Friends and Fans Facebook page this week to check more DT projects on this Blast from the Past assignment.  I am always a comment away if you have questions on how this came together.
