Smile Scrapbook Page


The forum challenge was to make a scrapbook page that would invoke a smile and had some stamping on it.


I love this picture my daughter when she was just 3 years old and a bridemaid at her cousins wedding but she wouldn't smile for the photographer. What you don't see is me running around like a lunatic with a massive bunch of ballons getting her to chase me much more fun than a boring photo session. :o)


I've only made a couple of kit type pages before for my mum so this was a bit of a challenge for me. I've got a few 12x12 books that need filling so kept to that size. Not sure if the metallic gold rubons really show up properly but thats what I used for the shaded area, the only stamp I used was the Inka confetti waste stamp embossed, the rest was gold embossing freehand.
