Here is my page for today, a facing page for one I had done about 1950's style with a winter photo. I found a photo of my mother to put on this page with spring styles. She SEWED all of our clothes! This must have been a special occasion for her to actually BE in a photo: she was the only one I remember behind that old Brownie camera.
This used 3 manufacturers from the top line of 28-4-28 Day NINETEEN.
Lots of love in the gallery &... @thracin- I like how you did your aqua page on the diagonal & the beautiful colors on your friendship page. @dig-it-al 101- your boys are so cute. Sometimes it is hard to work "backwards" (I too am working on 2010 along with my more current items. But you really reflected the love your boys have for each other.
I am sharing some digital LO's as I keep "missing" the right lighting in my craftroom to take photos of some of my traditional LO's . As I have mentioned before when I need to get a lot of photos on a page, I often do digital LO's. On this one, I was trying to learn how to "stitch some photos together. (the large truck.) I figured it out....now whether I can remember to do it again is another thing. We live about 6 miles from this little town & they are really trying to foster community spirit. This was a lot of fun: Parade of Lights , Petting Zoo & a local band.
This is my layout for my 28-4-28 Day 23 Colour Challenge. The photo is from when my Dad and I went to Bali back in 1994. We got up early and went down to the beach to take a photo of the boats on the ocean at sunrise. The paper is from the "Summer Skies" kit by Kimeric Kreations, and the elements are from various Kimeric Kreations kits.
Points: 1 for the LO, 1 for sharing, #3 28-4-28 + bonus point, #4 hearts, #10 flowers, #11 tangled titles, #14 stars, #30 mega cluster, #41 rectangles, #45 digital love, #47 singles TOTAL = 12 points
And another one for my colour challenge, because I wanted to use the clipping mask that I just bought! It's a very simple LO with not one single embellishment, so there won't be too many points for this one. The clipping mask is "Border It 8" by Lindsay Jane, the paper is from the "Summer Skies" kit by Kimeric Kreations. Fonts are Raustila and American Typewriter.
Points: 1 for the LO, 1 for sharing, #3 28-4-28, #33 new love, #34 minimalist, #45 digital love, #47 singles TOTAL = 7 points
This is my LO for the 28-4-28 Day 18 Take 3/5 challenge. I used the Layer Works 1055 template by Studio Double-D, which means that once again all the hard work was done for me. All I had to do was add a photo and a couple of extra elements.

Meelleek, those are really sweet photos! I love the Boys Rule papers and other elements. Love how you added chipboard hearts and flairs. Putting that one mat on point really gives the page character (as if that little messy face were not enough!). Love the tilted photos on the last page, and those little flags. So cool that you are scrapping your son's childhood.
