Monday

Out at the park



Out at the park

I had one of those whirlwind weekends where I got lost in the time/space continuum. 
Seriously. *LOL*

I did, however, manage to work on this layout Out at the park, featuring my mother and older brother. I find it interesting to work with vintage photos. I group the photos based on the size of the baby and the length of my mother's hair to gauge the time frame. And kind of figure the rest out based on the background and my imagination since my mother's hazy on the details.:)


Just a little fun misting the cardstock, inking the edges with various distress inks and using up my Sassafras scraps and embellishments. Stickers. Buttons. I was inspired by the sketch at Creative Scrappers.

P/s: My guest Mandy's Extending the Background challenge ends this Friday so I really hope to see more of you play along. You can totally extend the background on a card too! :)
Tomorrow's guest was picked from the suggestions you left on this post. I can't wait for you to "meet" her! :)

Another wonderful LO. I love your story behind how you group the pics - thank goodness for digital photos where the camera automatically saves all the info for me. I need to start getting down all other details though.
