The brutally cold weather continues to plague Edmonton but I ventured out yesterday in spite of that for my weekly scrapping get-together with Jen. Can't miss my scrappy day with my sister! Lucky me got to work on my baby photo page while poor Jen struggled along trying to make five totally ordinary and mismatched snapshots look good. She did a pretty good job of it considering what she had to work to with!
Here's my sneak peek of the anniversary album for this week -
I've also recently scrapped a gem of a photo of our paternal grandparents that I found at Jen's one day while looking through a box of photographs our mother gave her. It wasn't often that we saw these grandparents while growing up and other than their wedding photo I don't have any other pictures of them so it was great to find this casual shot of them together.
My vision for this layout was to use Crate Paper's Restoration line but I really struggle with those papers so the vision ended up morphing into something totally different! While searching my stash for a piece of pink paper to mix with Restorations I found these three totally unrelated papers and decided they were perfect for the photo - a Pink Paislee christmas sheet, tiny dots from The Girls' Paperie and lovely pink swirls from MME's So Sophie line. Funny how things change like that but I really like the end result.
I used this sketch from Pagemaps:
Until next time...
