Okay so I am the first person to admit I am not to savvy when it comes to social media, especially Snap Chat. Actually I didn't even have Snap Chat until last week when I had 5 hours at the airport to wait around and I thought it might be fun to download the app and try and figure it out. Ummm well that turned into a phone call to my 18 year old daughter, lol with me asking her to walk me through it! I am sure to the people around me in the airport it was quite comical. I honestly wanted it for the fun filters, plus did you know there is a filter on there that makes you look amazing?! Seriously, it's like you, but better. Anything that can make this tired looking, mother of three and 40+ year old look good, sign me up;)
Anyway my daughter thinks it's hilarious to snap photos of me when I am not looking and adding ridiculous filters that, let's just say aren't very flattering. So a few weeks ago I decided to humour her and take a few selfies together. Which resulted in the following photos and scrap page.
For this traditional 12x12 page I used a collection of products from the Naturally Eclectic Suite (p.132&133 in the Annual Catalogue). The patterned papers in DSP (Designer Series Papers) are colourful, fun and have a watercoloured feel to them. I layered several of the patterns for this page to create a sense of fun and whimsy. The title was created by cutting out some of the DSP with the Large Letter Framelits and I left some space below the "OH" for journalling.
The images and sentiments from the Oh So Eclectic stamp set were used to stamp a background and create the word strips under the photos. The embossed Lemon Lime Twist Heart was created using the Eclectic Layers Thinlits and then cut out using Paper Snips.
All in all a relatively simple page but I love how it turned out and I am happy to have captured these moments in photos and am able to relive them forever because I actually got them printed and put down on paper. I have always loved scrapping but it had kind of fallen to the way side as life got busier and busier over the past few years. But now more then ever I am realizing the importance of capturing and recording these moments.
Have a wonderful Day and I hope I have inspired you to do something with all of those photos you take!
