TPE Scrapbook Challenge Saturday

Good Morning,

I know, it's Sunday, I'm a day late in posting my page for this week's scrapbook challenge at The Pink Elephant.  But hey, better late than never, right?

This week we have a color combination to play with.  It is Christmas colors, but they were perfect for my page... the green of the driving range and Hollyanne's shirt just really pulled this page together for these colors.


A few year's ago, my sister and her husband gifted us a visit and a lovely weekend at Massanutten in Virginia.  We stayed in a lovely condo, enjoyed dinner, a trip to the water slides and this particularly beautiful day was spent at the driving range with Uncle John giving lessons.  Karin and I sat back and watched the kids.


This is a true 12x12 page, which is why it's so "far away."  The blue is the drape in my studio in a box.  I don't like it.  But the page is cute.  I followed the sketch from My Favorite Things (MFTWSC104).  It's a bit off scale from their sketch, but the elements are basically there.  It's a simple page.  I am featuring a few MFT products:  Large Scallop Die-Namics die and the Die-Namics Framed Greeting stamp set and die and a sentiment from a set that was given to me when I took a class at the MFT shop.  I don't know it's name.  But the sentiment says "Simple pleasures make wonderful memories" - it was perfect!  The greeting die doesn't have a larger one for layering, so I pulled out my old Magic Matter pieces and created a layer.  I hate hand cutting, I'm not very good at it.  I need to invent a pin-point cutter that would work like a pencil that you use to draw around your image.

I do hope you'll join us this week for our scrapbook challenge.  They are a lot of fun and it'll help you get those pictures out of a box (or off the flash drive) and into the albums for people to enjoy.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Your pin-point cutter sounds genius! I want one :) And don't be so hard on yourself - I think your hand-cutting looks fabulous! Love the idea of your sister's gift too - the gift of an experience is such a great one :)
