I played with watercolor paint, added a stamped image with some heat embossing, and die cut the title with Cricut Explore Air. I also used some metal bits for the stamped words, punched hearts and a die cut filmstrip.
Thanks for stopping by today, hope you have a marvelous time filled with some happy moments you want to scrapbook about!
When I went looking for papers to use I thought about the red and black theme because of the restaurant. As soon as I spotted this floral by Carta Bella I wanted it. It is part of a recent order of florals I made through A Cherry On Top.com. This is the first one I’ve used from that batch. Do you ever do this, buy pretties then hoard them? Anyway, I kept the rest of the pieces solid since the floral is so busy.
Color quality seems a bit off and I tried to fix it, didn’t word too well. The bottom two pics my dear daughter slid in there as I was returning from the sushi bar. I used them because it shows the inside of Sakura well.
I don’t know if your birthday is coming up soon, or just passed, but whenever it is I wish it to be a very happy one!
Following a sketch from Sketch N Scrap blog I had a good time putting this page together. When ever I look for photos for a sketch challenge I try to match the size and orientation whenever possible. These two are from a set of pics taken at a restaurant so I’m sure I will make a companion page with some of the others. These worked together as they are my precious girls, between the two pics they are all accounted for.
I took some liberty with the added elements but kept the main sketch. Some of these elements I used are pulled from odds and ends, like the glitter strip. I cut the strip from a scrap I had recently used and still had out, where I was intending on using a ribbon.
The flourishes are stamped and heat embossed. I enjoyed making this page. Of course, gazing on these happy faces is always a delight. The added fun came as I scouted around for the additional goodies to add on.
Thanks for stopping by. I wish you lots of loving memories with your family and friends.
