Good morning crafters and happy Throw Back Thursday. I was going to blog a card that I created a couple of weeks ago but it hit me as I was starting to type that I may want to post a layout I created a while back of myself with my brothers when I was really little since it is ‘Throw Back Thursday’.
Here is a peek at what I created:
I had a lot of fun picking through our Family photos one day and finding some of myself and my older brothers. There aren’t many of them as they are much older then I am. I used a newer line of My Minds Eye paper called Market Street. I really loved the colors and patterns that it encompassed. I inked everything in Pearlescent Brown ink. I added a large hand cut heart (Thank you Tracy M and Shelley AM for showing me the tricks of your trade), and square paper doily (Thanks again Tracy for these). I used some of the chipboard pieces that came with the collection, created a banner with some of the scraps and same as the photo corners. I finished off the layout with some pearl bling on the photo corners and in clusters on the layout. I simply used everything that I could from this collection. The weekend that i created this, I used this collection on several projects and actually killed the entire collection minus some of the chipboard pieces and brads. Its a nice feeling to create some lovely projects that use up what you have. Now if only I could continue on this trend and use what I have…lol
Well I am off to start my very early day (not much sleep for me).
Have a great day and thanks for peeking in!!!!
