This month's Scrap The Girls challenge your LO was to be inspired by Shakespeare's verse "What's in a name? That which we call a rose
by any other name would smell as sweet."
and…. **Extra criteria - flowers & buttons**
I created a LO about how hubby and I chose Brittany's name. We couldn't agree on a name for her when I was pregnant. I came across the name Brittany and decided it would be perfect as that is the part of France my mother's family originated from and it would be a reminder of her heritage. It was meant to be as Yves actually liked my choice, and I was relieved we found a name we both liked.
Used some of the new Websters papers... so soft and pretty. The background is an old BG pp with a stamped border. Finished off with a smattering of buttons to fill the criteria.
Stuck Sketches - 1 November
I haven't done a Stuck sketch for a while, so I thought I would have a go as this was a quick one for me.... very unusual. I knew what I wanted straight away. The red black and white colour combo is one of my favs and I had just taken this pic of Brittany yesterday as I had noticed this beautiful South African Tulip Tree with the most magnificent blossoms and had to drag Brittany up the street for a photo shoot. She wasn't impressed!!!
Pulled out an old Bo Bunny pp for the background and some scraps for the squares. I stamped on acetate for the corner flourishes, a splash of red paint, some MS butterflies and a Prima felt stem and embossing for a bit of texture.
So excited to get this month's Scrapbooking Memories mag as my LO was published. I really liked this particular LO as Brittany... loved the using the paint for the background. Even though she tried not to show it I think she was just as thrilled as me!!
