Bath Time Buttons

This is my day to catch up on those unfinished projects around the house and catch up with my scrapbooking blog.
I am currently working on my daughter’s album for her 21st birthday. Unfortunately like all things, I decided to start it a couple of months ago. I have been working around the clock to complete it but with all the party planning I didn’t get it finished to give to her on her birthday. I have decided to mix a bit of pocket scrapbooking with 12×12 layouts. I have found I am able to achieve a great deal and get her photo’s into an album.
This layout was inspired by a google search for bath time layouts. I have used the Bo Bunny Primrose Papers. I love the colours in these papers as they fit into the baby/girl theme very well.

To add some dimension to the page, I found a packet of buttons of various pink shades and sizes and placed them across the page to resemble bubbles.

My daughter enjoyed her bath time and she loved taking a bath in the kitchen sink. I was living in a small country town and it would get very cold, so the kitchen sink was convenient and I was able to use the kitchen table to dry her off and dress her while the slow combustion stove was going. Our bathroom was a little cold as it was on the outside of the main house.
I really love looking back at old photo’s and the memories they evoke.

Dusty Attic Challenge “Rockstar”


I wanted to share with you this page I designed recently for a Dusty Attic Challenge
The background paper is from my stash. It is a Teresa Collins On the Edge paper range.
I grudged it up a bit by tearing and distressing the edges and then I used black ink to cover the edges. I have also mounted it onto a 12×12 piece of chipboard.
I then used a script stencil with some modelling paste to add a mixed media element to the page.
I then covered the chipboard Dusty Attic Guitar with the black glitter paper and sanded the edges.
To embellish I used the pop out elements from the paper range and the metal cross (I turned it upside down) and skull metal embellishment found in Spotlight in the bead and jewellery section.
I then used washi tape for added dimension. The music note chipboard is from Dusty Attic.
I covered them using the Metallic Distress Paint Gold Dabber.
The chipboard word is individual letters from Dusty Attic.
Photo of Jon is from David Bergman. Bon Jovi’s official photographer. Ordered online.
I really loved the way this page turned out and will go into the Bon Jovi album.
I wasn’t forunate enough to win this challenge but that’s ok. I am always up for a challenge!!
