sketchy scrappin


Here is the scrap page I promised. I used the same sketch from Karen Gs Sunday sketch as I did on my card yesterday.  I am making an album of pictures I love. No time line, or theme, just pictures that make me happy. I love this one of Mae. She is so happy and full of innocent joy, I just love it! 
The background paper is from a retired stack...blue bayou I believe. I loved the soft look and the fact that all the paper coordinated so well! Gotta love that! 
I added some fun white rub ons and silver brads for more interest.  The white scallop border is made with white cardstock and the scallop border punch from Stampin' Up! I just tucked it up under the patterned paper. The JOY is actually a brown rub on from a Christmas set from SU. I brought in some brown taffeta ribbon to ground the joy and then used aquapainters and classic ink to color it in. The cool thing is that the rub on kind of repells the water and ink so the color stays inside the letters. (Unless you get too much water and it bubbles over, but we won't talk about that...) 
I have one more page made from the Sunday sketch...check back tomorrow!
