Friends Layout

This layout celebrates the first time we played the Stealing Santa game and all those who we played with. Because we were in Tanzania we didn't have our family with us but good friends made it a great time.

For embellishments I made some from shrink plastic which was great fun (it shrinks to 1/7th of its size and increasing it's thickness 7 times when you heat it giving a small detailed image). I mounted stickers on acetate so that they didn't have to lie flat on the page, giving it more depth. The remainder were buttons, bows and sequins with small beads in the center and some word stickers. I stitched most of the embellishments on to give the idea of hanging as decorations from the tree would hang.

I made my large letter by dry embossing a piece of card and then chalking the raised parts in a darker shade. The small alphabet beads finished the title off.

Scrap Page for the Church of the Good Samaritan

This page has been real fun to do.
The really busy paper was the only one which reflected the brightness and joyfulness of the day but caused a problem because nothing would stand out on it. The chiffon ribbon under the letters was just what was needed to make them stand out.

The black edging and bunting strip brought the whole layout together.

I put the photos and journaling a flip book which you open to reflect the theme of the page which was the official opening of our church in Tanzania.
