I created this scrapbook layout for my friend, Barb's store. I actually created two - one for dogs and one for cats. There is a shaker card inset in the lower half of the page.
Let me re-build it from the bottom up so that you can get a better perspective of what you are seeing : ) The bottom layer is a 12 x 12" piece of tan card stock. In the center is a 6 x 11" piece of aqua cs taped flat on top of the tan cs. On the bottom portion of the aqua cs is a piece of clear acetate printed with words about cats in a soft gray color. I separated the acetate from the aqua cs by running foam tape all around four sides creating a box. Before I taped the acetate down I enclosed some flowers that I had punched out from paper scraps from this layout.
|This shows a different angle when the flowers are scattered around in the shaker box.|
I placed a long floral border down the left side and a thinner strip of cs on the bottom and right side of the aqua cs to concealed the foam tape.
The top of the shaker box is actually concealed underneath the photo frames : ) Neat huh?
The "tickets" are just 1 x 2" strip of paper with the corners punched out with my SU ticket punch. The sentiment banner "Best Friends" is only a piece of the acetate cut out and layered on top of aqua cs.
The photo color is really off! I had photographed this layout using the wrong setting on my camera and they were too far off to be able to adequately fix them in Photoshop. I'd already given the kits to Barb before I realized my error so I was unable to re-shoot the picture. But! I wanted to share the layout so I hope you will overlook the icky brownish green coloring.
It is snowing out right now and they are "promising" up to 18" in this two day storm! But I refuse to be bothered with it!! I know spring is coming! We've even heard reports that the black bear are beginning to wake up and move around (poor dears it is going to be hard finding food around here for a while! : )
Have a wonderful Friday!! and thank you so much fro stopping by!
