Scrapbook Challenge

Hey friends! Today is a sad day...I've got to pack up my studio! How sad is that!? I've got to say "air shipment" or "sea shipment". The air shipment will be packed tomorrow, which is great, that means that VERY shortly after we arrive in Seattle, we'll receive this shipment. However, that means that I'm having so say goodbye to them all today! I can't bring everything I'd like in the air shipment, so I'm having to choose...how difficult! It's almost like choosing children! (Maybe not THAT extreme, but you catch my wave?!)

So, I've got some things that hopefully I'll be able to share this next week, if everything goes according to my plans! Today, I'm sharing this scrapbook page of me and my sweet little Ruby. I wanted to participate in Jennifer Buck's Clean and Simple Scrapbook(CAS) Challenge. I loved her sketch...so thought I'd hurry and play along!
This photo of Ruby and I has been sitting at my desk for a few weeks-as I've been organizing photos and I love it! She is so big now, walking all over, eating everything, cutting molars, just growing up! Anyway, here is my take on Jennifer's Challenge.

My supplies are all SU. Vanilla(although looks washed out white) cardstock for my background page. I used mounted my photo on basic black, then added an old olive scallop edge. I mounted that all on Real Red cs. The black polk-a-dot flowers are rubons are from "A Perfect Day"(as are all the rub-ons on this page), that I rubbed onto vanilla cs and punched out with my 5 petal punch. I added some red rhinestones and added them with dimensionals. The Real Red bloom is from the die cut bloom set. I used another rub-on(too cute for words), used my 1 3/8" cirlce punch to punch it out, and then mounted it on an old olive scallop circle punch.

Thans for the challenge Jennifer! It was a fun one!:) Thanks for stopping by friends! I hope that you are all enjoying spring weather...our weather can't seem to make up it's mind! Snow, sun, rain, sun, snow, sun...all in one day!:) Have a great day and thanks so much for your visit!

So are you going to be in the states for a while then? Good luck packing everything up. I'd have issues choosing too because I'd want it all.

This page is fabulous! I'm actually thinking of switching to 8 1/2 X 11 pages because I don't scrap as often as I want to. My excuse - I don't have enough variety of 12X12 paper.
