Friday again... Yessss.... So cool.
I've been working with several pages for a co-worker. Her youngest son had the first communion recently and she asked me to put together an album with the photos of the family at the event.
I usually do not make multiple pages about specific events. I'm kind of a random scrapbooker because I just make what I feel to do at the moment. I do have some projects about trips or events... and you know what? They are incomplete because I hop from one to another when I get bored of the same theme. This is why this project has been kind of difficult to me because some photos are very similar and the theme of them all is the same... so I've been trying to give a twist to each page so they tell different stories within the same story of the event. Did I explain myself? LOL...
Anyway... this photo shows my co-worker with her two sons. If I was a mother, I think this would be the most special photo, so I tried not to tie it necessarily to the first communion because the boy is holding the certificate so it is kind of obvious.
I titled the page "3"... they are a family of 3. I framed the photo with different elements and I liked it.
I used an inventory tag portion from a patterned paper and filled the blanks (article or kind of material: family; amount: 3; unit: 1; count: each). I also used a journaling card I got from Unity as a gift with my order (love all the words and phrases related to family), and some other pre-made cards or portions of them... and also stamped my own, like the one with the big heart at the bottom and the one with the XOXOXOXOXOXO message. These are both Unity Stamp Co. stamps. At the left bottom corner I included the first letter of each of their names.
I left a white strip at the bottom of the page as part of the page, but it is really the commercial strip from the other side because this is a double sided page. But I cut the same size strip from the top of the paper to maintain the 12"x12" size and be able to have that white strip as part of the design.
So... I will keep on working in the album. I hope she likes the final result. Hope to be able to give it to her soon. She said NO RUSH... thank God!!! LOL...
Have a great Friday.
