Just the 2 of Us!!!


For some reason I thought I had posted this page to my blog already but I can't seem to find it!! Hmph! Did I ever mention that my memory sucks?? Well, I wouldn't remember if I HAD mentioned it anyway!! Bahahahaaaaaa!! I think I just posted it in my SCS gallery but not on here......so here it is!! Ta daaaaaa!

Anyhaway.....I did this page combining two challenges!! The first challenge was a Virtual Scrapbooking Challenge to use buttons on your page and the other challenge was from my local scrapbooking store, The Cat's Kaboose!! They have a monthly challenge to create an sb page using the papers and embellishments that they give you. You must use a little bit of everything that they provide but you can add anything you want to it from your own stash.

So I took a 5x7 pic and made it black and white (that way it goes with ANY papers you choose to use.....plus I LOVE b&w pics) and used it as the focal point of my 12x12 page. It's a pic that Emileigh took of the two of us on St. Pete Beach in Florida! The patterned papers are by Lil Davis Designs and some of the cardstock was provided, so I'm not sure what it is. The SU cardstock I used was Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue and Real Red. I would never have combined those colours myself, but they look cool on the pp, so what do I know??

I made the left hand border using a strip of the cardstock for the base, stamping Polka Dots and Petals on in in CC and then adding all those lovely flowers which are Cuttlebug diecuts plus a BUNCH of my SU buttons!! I don't normally use that many buttons or spendy embellishments on my page (it's actually painful for me to use that much 'stuff'....I'm so thrifty!!!) but i really wanted this page to be special!

The title is a combination of chipboard and Cuttlebugged letters and numbers. The photo panel has some yummy velvet ric rac that was included with the kit as well as those delish-us (don'tcha love that spelling....I made it up...keeheehee) Prima hydrangeas. Then I just added the red corners to finish it off!!

I didn't win for the VSBN challenge but my page is currently hanging in teh local scrapbook store with 7 others being voted on!! Eek!! SO if you happen to live in St. Thomas and you stop by The Cat's Kaboose, PLEASE vote for #8!! It's mine!! Heehee! I could win a gift certificate to the store........and I LOVE that store!!!

Oh...Kimmie, I love your scrapbook page. It's gorgeous, just like your daughter and yourself.

Now I have the commercial jingle "Just the two of us..." in my head. And it's killing me that I can't rememember what it is for.

Your scrap page is wonderful! Love the colors and embellishments that you have used. I was surprised to find out that it is your daughter in the picture with you. I honestly though that it was your sister. I hope you win the contest.
