Saturday Scraplift: Around We Go

Hi everyone! I hope you are ready for the Saturday Scraplift and a little boost of weekend inspiration. As I was looking for just the right page to use this week I was drawn to pages with circles and I found a great page by Kelly (mugsbigsis). I was drawn to the elegant simplicity of her design,

I’ve never played much with a circle shape for my photo so this was a fun challenge for me. This photo of my granddaughter watering my patio flowers was a vertical shot but it worked well in a circle shape.  For my page I used Josie Scrapbook KitBlue Skies Solids Paper Pack and Stacking Sentiments Gardener Brushes and Stamps.

The Story Scrapbook Challenge

So scouring around the internet I find out that July 23rd is “Gorgeous Grandma Day”  Who knew??!!

So I want you this month to tell a story about your grandmother.    Was she an amazing role model, a stern task master, a gentle guide as you grew up?  Did she look after you whilst your mother and father worked?  Was she taken from your life too soon, or is she still with us?  Did you have holidays visiting her, do you have a special memory of that time?  I’d love to read a story about her, or about a little snippet of her life, or a day you wish to remember which involved her.

Maybe you want to tell the story about when YOU became a grandmother.  What did it feel like, the emotions when you held your grandchild for the first time?  Have you got umpteen grandchildren?  Do you have a special name that you like to be called rather than grandma, granny or nanna?  I have a friend who gets called Gra Gra for instance.  What’s your special name that your grandchild calls you?  Or in turn what did you call your grandmother?

Do you look like your grandmother?  Is there a trait you have similar to her?  Were you named after her?  So many stories to tell.  We want to hear it all.

I have made a page about my memories of my grandmother who passed away in 2007, little snippets that stick in my mind that are uniquely part of her.

38_Carol_TheStory

Supplies I have used:  Josie Scrapbook Kit,  Josie Canvas Solids Paper Pack,  Torn Classic White Photo Frames No. 02,  Basic Grids Paper Pack No. 01,  Lovely Paper Pack No. 02,  Ledger Grids No. 04 Brushes and Stamps,  Pinned Enamel Hearts No. 01,  Vintage Journal Spots No. 03,  Almost Spring Element Pack,  Far Away Fairyland Element Pack,  Clean Stitched: White No. 03.

The team at DD have generously provided a freebie to help you on your way, the link is good for the entire month of July.  I hope the goodies inspire you.   I am really looking forward to reading your stories.

Post your pages in the Scrapbook Challenge Gallery and don’t forget when you use ALL DD product on your challenge page you should post a link of your page in the July Challenge Participation thread so that it will count toward your savings in the rewards program.  Everyone’s a winner!

Saturday Scraplift: Soft Sepia Layers

Good morning! Welcome to this week’s Saturday Scraplift. Today we’ll be lifting the very talented smcloone (Sylvia) and her precious page called Cousins.

Cousins-_Parker_Boomer_There are so many details to love! First, that precious sepia photo. I love the softness of the colors of the layout and all of her layer details accent but don’t detract from the scene. I am also a sucker for a photo taken from behind. Lots of inspiration in this page.

This week we are blessed with some wonderful lifts. First up is shannamay (Sharon) with a beautiful layered page. Although the photo is a bit more vibrant, the overall feel of the page is calming like the forest that is pictured. And she too used a photo from behind of a little one. Adorable.

beehive50 (Debi) also had a go at this week’s lift and as usual, put her “Debi spin” on the brush and layered page. As always, I love how she streamlines the design to stay true to her style and still manages to be obviously inspired by the page.

And last but not least is my page. Remember I said that I was a sucker for a photo from behind….well my daughter has spent the past week at the United States Coast Guard Academy learning all about it and being tested in ways she’s never imagined. This was the last I saw of her before she headed in for her “biggest adventure yet”. 🙂 I did desaturate the colors of the photo as well as some of the elements to give the page a softer feel.
