The current challenge over at Merly Impressions is to make a layout which features journaling to tell the story behind the photo.
You can find the challenge here and there is time to enter, the closing date is 2nd September. I try to journal on my pages, and usually feel they aren't quite finished if I don't.
This is my entry for the challenge, as the journaling says it is a rare photo of me and my daughter together, from the days when she was more willing to pose for the camera. I so love this photo that I can see me scrapping it more than once!
The background paper is American Crafts, and the jars were cut from another AC sheet. I inked the heart and swirl die cuts and misted the doilies, I also used part of a PL card and washi tape. The pink and green flower was cut from mulberry paper and secured with a brad. I am really pleased with how this page turned out, which isn't always the case for me,
