Challenge 5b - This Lady

After working for the last week and some change on albums for my dad for his birthday and Kev for Valentine's Day, I took a break (I have 3 pages left to complete in each of their 20-page books - not bad!), anyway, I took a break to participate in the ScRap SiStaZ Challenge 5b.

This Lady:

Some observations about the process and the products used:

  1. Patterned paper is from DCWV Rockstar Stack, because my mom IS a Rockstar.
  2. The photo in the circle is overexposed to begin with, and a photo of this photo makes it worse. It's better in person, slightly. But I wanted to include a cap & gown photo of my mom and this was the best there was.
  3. Yes, I scanned and reprinted the original photos before using them on this layout.
  4. I almost went completely postal during this process because I can NOT get my printer to print on SU! card stock. I tried for about an hour and was pretty close to chucking my printer over the edge of the deck to see if I could make it to the lake (Kev said no way). I finally printed on a piece of yellow paper...NOT card stock. What the h-e-doublehockeysticks is the problem?
  5. My mom is simply amazing. Such a role model.

What a great page about your Mom! Love it!

P.S. Maybe you should use CTMH paper. LOL :) Kim

This came out very nicely. The crowns on the paper remind me of a queen.

When you have an overexposed photo you might try using a photo-editing program to tweak it a bit. Sometimes that works.

I want some pictures of my mom at this age. I have maybe one. Guess I better get on the horn and bug her for some.

Nice layout Heather. Thanks for another great idea!
