Granny's Photo Album at Gingersnap Creations
So enough yammering on... today it's time for another fun month of challenges at Gingersnap Creations, and we're starting off with the theme of "Granny's Photo Album." Our sponsor this month is the fabulous Retro Cafe Art Gallery - with wonderful vintage images and collages that are right up my alley!
I decided to have some fun and came up with a piece that I imagined as "Grandfairy's Photo Album" - a little twist on the theme. The adorable children's portraits are from the Oh Baby 2 collage sheet, and the lovely floral backgrounds are by Debrina Pratt - DP98. I added in some stamped and distress stained wings, some charms, and a bit of chipboard here and there. Some background inking and matting of the photos completed the look. These could just as easily have been a set of ATCs, too - the backgrounds are sized accordingly on the collage sheet.
I am hoping to get back in the swing of things and get around to all of your beautiful blogs sometime this week. Our schedule this week has slowed down some - my son is in between hockey seasons - his team just won the championship for his age division!!! Wooohooo to my little goalie! And my daughter's volleyball tournaments have been local as of late, so we've saved some driving time. Now for my husband and I to kick our colds, and things should be back to "normal." Stay warm and stay healthy, my dears!
