Creative Scrappers #298 | Keepin' it Real | Cuts 2 Luv...




Hi scrapping friends!!!!


It's time for the reveal of Creative Scrappers September sketch #298!!!  For today's sketch I used  a couple of pictures of my husband and I, we are celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and wanted to make this page as a gift for him...

Our sponsor this month is Cuts 2 Luv ...Great selections of badges/flairs...


Keepin'it Real...



Here's the sketch #298..



The sketch has this circle in it, but I wanted to use a different form of circle....saw a picture in a catalog of a metal sculpture and asked Kristine to created a cut file for me to use...

So for this page I combined the Pink Paislee-Take Me Away and Cocoa Vanilla Studio-Love Always collections. I love the soft colors in both of these collections and will go perfectly with the flairs I have!!!!
I choose to use the beautiful patterned paper from Pink Paislee-Take Me Away for my cut file and I decided to use two photos instead of one, which brings me to using the Circle Square Background to back my photos.

Here's a few close-ups...

I added some journaling strips between by photos...and scattered a few die-cut hearts around the left side of my circle ...    
You can also see I tucked one of the flairs on the right side of my photo and added the other one to the top left on to the cut file,  I wanted your eyes to follow the movement of the circle....  


I created some more textures by adding a few lines of stitching across my page... 


I found the the perfect title for this page in the thickers from the Take me away collection...I also added this beautiful lace doily and the fabric flowers from the Love always collection....
