Online Scrap With a Friend

Last night I was in the mood for a little scrapbooking. I was just getting myself organized when Patti (from Alberta) caught me online. We decided to scrap together. I had never done this before, but I was up for the challenge.

She provided this sketch.....

I really enjoy scrapbooking from a sketch. It gives me the starting point and then the creativity just seems to flow.

Here is Patti's take on the sketch. She is so creative. I have to admit that I am a little intimidated by her. She is on a few different design teams and has a real flair for using embellishments.

So, here is my take on the sketch. I love how this page turned out. All of the papers are from the new Delight line from Fancy Pants. I used a border stamp and Vintage Photo Distress ink to do the doodle lines around the page.

One of my favourite parts on the layout (aside from the photos of my son) are the trees. I learned this technique from a friend. She had used it on a card, so I thought I would try it out. They are layered circles out of cardstock and pattern papers. I used a mister and sprayed the papers with water, crumpled them up and then opened them again to dry. It adds great dimension . I was very impressed with the results.

I used the Alphalicious font for the Cricut for my title along with another circle element for the dot on the letter 'i'.

Thanks to Patti for a great night of scrapbooking. I hope to do it again soon!
