Another thing that I cannot wait for is coming up this Friday, May 3rd. John and I are driving up to Penn State to pick up Katie!!! YAY! She is coming home for the summer. I cannot believe that her Freshman year flew by so quickly. I know that John, Anne, and I are going to enjoy every second while she is home!
In honor of this awesome occasion, I wanted to scrap a photo from one of our visits up to Penn State in the fall of last year. The photo was taken at the Alumni Gardens at Penn State Main Campus, and is one of my favorites of Katie and Anne!
Here is the original photo right out of the camera:
And I converted it to black and white to make it more dramatic. Here it is::
Katie and Anne just look so happy and carefree here, don't you think?
I knew that I wanted to scrap this picture, so I went looking for inspiration on the web! WOW! There are some really talented scrapbookers and artists out there! I found some wonderful inspiration at one of my favorite blogs: Scrap Africa! The challenge going on at their blog right now is to used triangles, black and white photos, and confetti on your layout/project:
I thought this challenge was perfect for my photo, so I decided to give it a try! I still had lots of papers and embellishments left in the Scrap That! kit that I just won during their blog hop in April.
Here is my final result:
I used little hearts and stamped stars for my confetti.
Some of my triangles are inked on my page above the photo, and the doily is the shape of a triangle, too:
. . . and I also used triangles in the banner just below my photo.
Here are some more close-ups:
I just loved making this page today! Thank you, Scrap Africa, for the inspiration!!!
