So.... would recommend that you get a glass/cup of your favorite drink as this post will be long... much longer than any that i have posted yet (given that there's only 13 before this)... i'm even writing this with a glass of wine in hand!
Just be me... funny how i started out tracing the shape to cut for the album and as i was getting ready to paste the first page, i couldn't bring myself to hide away the adorable pattern - using lily bee: three little bird collection - so the pages are not glued onto the chipboard pages as usually done... instead utilized both sides or used my quickly expanding stash of hambly overlays...
Well did end up using a bit of the maya road chipboard album - it was more to ensure the sturdiness of the pages...
For these two pages, below, added more journal cards that can be tucked behind the pictures - as i have tons to things to write about the scrapper in me. The tim holtz clear stamp was used for the quote on the left page and my quickutz dies came just in time for the birdie. On the right page - i used "life" and "details" stamp from unity and embossed the cardstock paper to give it a contrasting effect... or so i though... :)
Funny how we all get inspired from different things... for me, it the calmness and peacefulness of the ambiance - like that in the picture below... (taken in spain - alhambra)
and yes... that's what i have done thus far and hopefully there will be more to add to the list... :)
