Bad Scrapping Day
Do you ever have those days when you feel you’re forcing the creativity to happen? Well creating this page was one of those experiences for me. I typically have these experiences when I’m being stubborn about using a left over piece from another project. I’d punched out a circle with my multi-shape punch to use on a card which left me with a square piece with an ornate hole in the middle. I thought it would make a nice frame for a photo on a scrapbook page. I selected a photo from our family trip to Puerto Rico this past Thanksgiving. It’s a rare photo of me (most of my photos are of my daughter), standing in the midst of palm tree leaves. But once I figured out how to use the frame and the photo together, I drew a blank. How else should I embellish this page?
I turned to my trusty dazzle stickers from Paper Wishes, using their Floral Scrapbooking Dazzles. I added a border along the left side of the page and a trio of flowers backed with patterned paper on the top left corner of the frame. Thankfully the dazzle sheet also had a title, since for sure deciding on a title would’ve resulted in more hours of blankly staring at the page. I added some ribbon along the bottom of the photo and called it a day.
