Loving the sketch at Sketchabilities . I used it for this layout based on the theme this month of Carnival over at Craft Szafa’s blog. Loving how the combination of these two challenges inspired this layout.
The photos are of a free performance given by Cirque de Soleil at Quebec City on 10 August 2011 – the day my son Chris turned 18. Scott, Mary, Chris and I spent the day in Quebec City to celebrate the big day – and ended the evening with this amazing performance. I used Graphic 45 Le Cirque Collection paper line for this layout. Hope you enjoy it!!
Here are my parents Bob and Mary Wride, circa 1956 at an unnamed beach. The beach is likely near or at Cold Lake Alberta, where they were posted during their courtship and early marriage. I used Webster’s Pages Seaside Retreat diecut for this layout. The embellishments were cut from the design on a sheet of Graphic 45 Botanicabella Collection paper, an economical way to make embellishments for a scrapbook layout. I used foam squares to raise the cut-outs up, giving a layered look to my layout. It is a real pleasure capturing these treasures of our family’s early life.
