Mid-week Scrappiness!

Happy Scrappy Wednesday all! Wanted to share a New LO that I just finished up a few minutes ago. The photos are from a couple days after Christmas last year. I was preparing for the "After Christmas Dinner Party" we were having when this impromptu photo-shoot took place.

 I was inspired by an old Sketchabilities sketch, (#18), that I'd saved a while back in the hopes of doing when I came across pictures I thought would do it justice. I was also inspired by a couple of different color palettes I came across in The Color Room- #128 and #131!

I'm also thrilled that I was able to use up a ton of product from previous Vintage Chic Cafe Kits that have been lying around in a box, untouched, for over a year now! I finally broke down and decided to go through them the other day so I'd at least know what I had in them when I was looking to pull items for my next LO. I'm getting such a feeling of satisfaction chipping away at my stash with each new page I create and I hope to be able to keep this momentum going as long as I can!

 Time for a few close-ups!

One thing I like to do is layer my flowers, which you can see I did here w/some older primas. I also placed a heart sticker on a scrap piece of cardboard and cut it out to make the heart embellie accent. For the title I combined Echo Park's Life is Good Alpha's w/Scenic Route Orange Letter Stickers & I absolutely love them together!!  : )

Behind the photo I layered a crumpled coffee filter with a scrap of a doily I had leftover, and Sassafrass's beautiful Mix & Mend doily-looking paper, Fancy Free. I also doodled stitch marks w/my brown Zig writer to add a little more detail.

I decided to add my journaling right to the page since the background had a light grid pattern which helped me to keep my lines straight when writing.

Supplies: PP-DCWV, Jillibean Soup Lentil, MME Lush & Sassafrass Mix & Mend Fancy Free; Basic Grey Hello Lucious Laser-cut Doily paper; Alpha's-Scenic Route Dark Orange & Echo Park Life is Good; Flowers-Prima; Stickers-DMD Industries Red Hearts and MME Tres Jolie Birthday Boy French Borders; Brown Zig Writer; Misc.-cardstock, buttons, brads, doily & coffee filter all from various Vintage Chic Cafe Kits.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a scraptastic day!  : )
