Notable Quotable March Challenge is up at Paper Issues and I just loved the quote so much!
I just really had no idea what direction I wanted to take it. I had a bunch of possible ideas in my head but I really just couldn't get them how I wanted. My sister just happen to post these two pictures on her Facebook - maybe it was just meant to be!
With it be awkwardly bi-polar this month with weather (one minute we're thinking it's almost summer and the next- well, here comes 12 inches of snow); I decided to use the pictures from one of those summer days and craft on one of the snow days using the Crate Paper Oasis line which makes me feel like I'm right back on that summer day.
I took these photos my sister took from their family's trip to Plymouth. When I saw the quote, I thought about the kiddos and how I never want them to grow up. There's so much going on in the world right now, they need to stay innocent and small. I thought these photos would look great with this line. I also can't get enough of these teal and pink colors. I scraplifted myself from a previous page creating layers with the acetate and vellum paper- as well as papers from the line. For the title, I couldn't figure out any stickers that I thought worked well- they were all making me sad. But I thought of an idea I've used before- creating a base for the alphas using washi. I found this teal/pink ombre washi I had- hoping it would work with the pink alphas - that I've never used so it was nice to bust them out.
