Sharing these layouts today has reminded me that I have SBS again (Slow Blogger Syndrome) . . lol Im blaming the glorious weather we are having . . . . it doesnt happen here in Ireland that often so when it does we have to make the most of it.
Both of these LO’s have been done for the weekly challenges on UKS over the past 2 weeks and they both feature photograph’s from my scrappy retreat to Loch House in April.
This first one features a photo of me which was taken by my lovely friend Lesley. Regular readers of my blog will know that I really dont like getting my picture taken but its something Im trying to overcome so that I can include myself in my scrapbooking . . . as my husband said, its all well and good leaving a legacy of scrapbook layouts behind but your not in any of them!
The criteria for the challenge included using two photo’s for a ‘before and after’ theme, some fussy cutting, something hidden and using a frame. I combined two of the criteria so my ‘something hidden’ is also my ‘before’ photo.
So, here I am caught on camera!
The hidden pink pocket holds my ‘before’ photo:
‘Before’ being the colour version of the portrait before it was converted into black and white! On the back of the insert is my journaling with details of who took the photo and where.
The second LO features 4 out of the 5 of us ladies who were at Loch House. Unfortunately Donna had already left before we had the notion to take the photo’s but we will remedy that next time we are there!
The challenge this time was to use Black and White with a touch of yellow, 2 photo’s, something old and something new and an element from one of the sentences of the Magpie rhyme (I chose Gold) and incorporated it by using gold bling around my bloom centre.
I thought this challenge suited these photo’s perfectly! I was really pleased with how the photo’s came out and didn’t want to distract from them in anyway by over loading the LO with too many embellishments. Clean, crisp and elegant is how I would describe it.
I will share the other photo’s from our mini Loch House shoot in a separate post!
Thanks for stopping by!
