I Miss You


Hello friends! I want to thank everyone for stopping by & visiting! My latest layout was inspired by a photo of me & my Dad. He passed away 21 years in May and I guess I was just wanting to scrap him! I actually had another name planned & as I was adhering the title work I thought out loud " I miss you". I knew at that moment that was my title! Ohh it is so true!
I used the fantastic April 2010 Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook that features the yummy "Life's Portrait" line from Websters Pages. This line is one of my fav's from Websters. This was a quick layout!! 4 hours is all it took. That is VERY fast for me!!! I am a sloooooooow scrapper!
I punched the top & bottom edges of the background paper with a Martha Stewart lattice punch & adhered to black card stock. The die cut shield was cut using a Crafters Workshop template ( I love them!). I thought the black & white papers really complimented the photo. I inked all raw edges with 2 colors- Adirondack Terra Cotta & Distress Broken China.



I double layered the lace, applying the black first & the peachy color behind the black trim. The flowers were kit included & worked perfect in a circle! I then used a Boss Kut Corner Flourish die & cut about 9 corner flourishes & adhered them in a circular pattern on the center circle. I dotted around the die cut shield using gold Liquid Pearls... they look coppery against the peach papers! I was hoping it would & it turned out that way!!


The photo was double matted & a lattice punch edge was attached. The journaling tag was made by covering a piece of raw chip board with paper, inking the edges & using some rub-ons as black accents. I dotted around the oval with the gold Liquid Pearls.



I was very happy with the way this turned out! It reflects how I was feeling & that is why we do this!!!

Thanks so much for taking a peek! I really appreciate it!
