Let's Go on an Adventure! SBC lift

Every month at Scrapbook Circle, a few of the DT members get to lift pages of subscribers that they post on facebook or to the SBC blog.   This month I lifted member Fiona.  You can see the post HERE on the SBC blog with her original.

This picture was taken the day before I did this page, and it is very rare that I scrap a photo so quickly after have taken it.  My brother works part time nearby a few days a week and comes to stay with us and the kiddos love to spend time with their Uncle "Ah-Rah" (a nickname that Charlotte made up a few years ago which has stuck!)

I worked with some of the "earthy" prints and patterns like the woodgrain and flowers to go along with the theme of my photo.  I also love the "natural" feel of the cork and wood embellishments, too!

The green isn't a very dominant color at first glance of this kit, but I found a few bits in the OA pack and then I stamped some of the wood pieces with green ink to match.  Lots of layering and distressing above, like the page I lifted!

I wanted to ground these wood pennants a bit more, so I tied them with some twine to the edge of the page. Again, I stamped some of the wood with a reddish ink, and left the other plain.

This kit has given me four totally different pages and I love that!  Will share more, soon!

Stay scrappy my friends!
