3 Scrappy Boys Crop - Vintage Mum Layout!


I did this layout for a crop challenge at 3 Scrappy Boys
where we were required to scrap photos of ourselves.
I have been sorting through all my old photos & came
across these VERY OLD ones! 

I combined it with a sketch from Creative Scrappers
{loving sketches again right now}.

Used paper & embellishments from Glitz Design
- Beautiful Dreamer collection.

Tickets from Purple Pumpkin, inked up a bit,
and the last of my pearls by the yard :(


The kids loved looking at these photos of me - 
unfortunately they are practically all I have from
my childhood!  How times have changed!!


 I used 3 different colours of mists - pink, orange & green.
The trick is a very light hand spritzing at a 30 degree angle,
slightly overshooting the page.  Then take off the cap &
tap with your fingernail to achieve the splodgy dots.

I just realized I said 'old' in my previous post. :) I didn't mean to say you were old. (hee hee). I meant to say I love to see pictures of ourselves from when we were younger. Hope you are having a great day! :)
