Best Friends Together


I thought I'd use the sketch challenge at Just Add Ink to complete a scrapbook layout. I used a photograph of my daughter Ada and her best friend Zahli that Zahli's mum Lisa took. I think it is a fantastic photo of them and I couldn't wait to scrap it. Here's the layout:

I used two copies of the photo: one at 5x7 inches and one at 6x8 inches. I layered vellum over the smaller photo and inked the edges with Soft Suede. I love the soft, muted effect.

I've left a space for some journalling: a Top Note hidden behind the main photo. I'm not sure where or when the photo was taken so I won't do the journalling until I find out.

I used colours from the Autumn Traditions DSP as my colour inspiration - Elegant Eggplant, Soft Suede and Ruby Red. I would never have thought to put the purple and red together, but I think they look great!

Card Stock: Elegant Eggplant, Ruby Red, Soft Suede, Vellum
Ink: Soft Suede
Other: Small Rhinestone Brads, 1/4" Elegant Eggplant Grosgrain ribbon, 5/8" Soft Suede Polka Dot Grosgrain ribbon, Round Tab Punch, Eyelet Border Punch, Big Shot, Top Note Die, Timeless Type Alphabet Die, Sponge Dauber
