My example for them was a double layout that featured my son Rusty when he graduated in 1994. I actually had forgotten that his class colors were purple till I ran across the tassel that graces the left hand side of the layout. I found that and thought what a perfect accent color to go along with the black and orange colors that represent our school. The stickles that I used were both purple and silver.
The final two layouts were generated from recipes on Cookin' Up Creations Next Crop Chef Challenge. This was presented by Sandy and the "recipe" called for a jewlery or other small tag, a heart, a border and a page from an old book. (I used one from a dictionary with the divination of cake on it!)
Bev gave us the next "recipe" and it called for stickles or glitter, a clock or watch face, trims, handwritten journaling, postage stamp, embossing AND masking. Here is what I came up with:
On any of the uploaded images you can double click on them to get a closer look or to read the journaling. For the one of my mom and I, I want to share the journaling with you. It reads:
I am 57 in my picture and the best I can figure, mom must have been close to that age in her picture. I don't think we look anything alike, but I know we were alike on the inside. From mom I got my cooking and crafting skills. Mom and I could talk for hours, never mentioning a name or a place, but yet we both understood. I don't think I've ever missed her more than today and the same will be for tomorrow. 2-11-12
I do miss her, I would love to sit and have more of those chats with her. I'm sure we would find so much to talk about, because we always did! I love you mom.....
