Off the Rails - November challenge

Hi everyone,

I have not had much time for extra scrappy challenges lately, with one thing and another. However this week, I made some time and this challenge from Off the Rails seemed perfect for me! Especially with the beautiful photo of our 3 girls, all dressed from my sisters Engagement party (which ended up being a Surprise wedding!!!!!!!).

Here is my page and a few close ups!

So.... I started with white cardstock base and used Colour Blast - Colour Shimmer Cubes (lipstick, blush and envy) to paint and splatter around the outer edge.

Then I stuck this transparency sheet over. That's the black designs around the edges. I have had this transparency sheet for so long, I have NO idea where it even came from. I machine stitched it to the page, and my old sewing machine did crack up! (#miracleshappen)

I embellished with some of my favourites - using a pink, teal, silver and black colour scheme.

I love all things Charms Creations, so the soft pink heart seemed perfect for this page. Combined with a Rainbow Splendour epoxy button and some D-lish Scraps flowers and stamen, and we were set.

I also found some micro-beads in my stash... I am sure you see them glued to the layout. You don't want to see my desk and floor where the micro-beads went everywhere! So worth it! Lol!

Another Charms here, this time a chevron and more D-lish flowers and a bow.

I added a touch of bling with a string of silver sequins, and a silver circle tag (#ilovestashbusting)

This last close up, hopefully shows the painted Colour Blast edging under the transparency. I was really so happy with the effect!

Anyway.... when you have a lovely photo like this, it deserves a special scrapped page. So glad I found Off the Rails, I was really inspired to create this!

Thanks for looking,

Great layout Amanda. Love the idea of stitch the transparency on, I always struggle with finding ways to attach them without it showing. Glad you could join us at Off The Rails Scrapbooking
