to love & be loved
This page is based on my Allyscraps sketch from earlier this month. I love all the new Fancy Pants lines, especially My Family. I read the title/quote on a fortune cookie that I got in a restaurant at least a year ago. I saved the fortune and had it tucked away in a drawer on an organizer that sits on my scrap table, knowing that I wanted to use it on a page. When I saw this photo that my husband took on Mother's Day, I knew it was perfect!
Check out how I created the circle element:
I cut a circle out of a piece of scrap paper and used the paper as a mask, then stamped with blue chalk ink using the background stamp from the Round & Round anniversary set from Papertrey Ink. Finally, I outlined the circle with a white gel pen. I love this subtle, custom-background effect! I also used another PTI background stamp for a little added interest along the bottom edge of the blue paper, also. The ticket stamp is from an Autumn Leaves set.
Thanks for letting me share! :)
