Scrapbook Page for Sarah

So, I promised myself I would scrap a couple of days ago and then we had all of that bad weather. I have a HUGE headache right now, but I got the page scrapped and thought that I would go ahead and post it. I cheated since most of my papers and other scrappin' necessities are in storage and used a kit I have on hand. I'm going to use the kit to make a chipboard book with, but I figured I should have some left-overs so I grabbed some of the card stock stickers out of it and some of the patterned paper and one piece of the River Rock textured card stock, and this is what I came up with!! Not to mention, there's TONS of stuff left in the kit - more than enough for my board book.

All of these items come from the SU! Special Delivery Girl Simply Scrappin' Kit and I MADE the buttons with some Crystal Effects, patterned paper, and clear buttons. The little flower on the top right of the page is 2 stickers from the kit layered on each other and then on top of that one of the clear sticker "bubbles" from SU!'s build-a-brad kit.

This picture is of Sarah and as the journaling that you probably can't see says, she is 6 months old and it was in 2005. I LOVE this picture of her and I had it developed in sepia and happened to have it here with me in Oklahoma so I knew it was the one I wanted to scrap. I liked that I could add color to the page with little torn strips of paper, and cut paper and ribbon, and then it kind of frames the picture really making her cuteness pop. What I was disappointed in was the glue that I used was a special ribbon glue that "won't seep through your ribbon" but it most definitely did seep through the ribbon I sponged with Apricot Appeal, so those darker spots you see, just ignore - I'm crossing my fingers that they'll magically disappear because they're not part of the polka-dot pattern.

I would love to hear what you think!! In the next couple of days you will see this page again, but "edited" to have some paper piercing that I want to do on it after seeing it in this photo.
