SCRAPBOOK SATURDAY - MADE WITH NEW PRODUCTS FROM BLACK MARKET SOCIETY!

Happy Saturday all!!! Here are two layouts that I made using the new line from Black Market Society called When the Weather is Fine! I love this paper, the pics just don't do it justice! These pages are proudly on display at CHA right now!! And, the new line will be available at Coconut Scrapshop so make sure you stop in and order yours! This first layout features two of their pattern paper in this line plus some of their cutouts that I used for tags all over the page!! I freehanded the curves to give the feeling of waves on the page, painted, glued, and glittered a little wooden doodle, and added two prima flowers with Stampin' Up! clear buttons in the center. If you look closely under the buttons, you will notice that there is another piece of dp plus a SU!rubon on top of the button! These pics are me and my sis at Big Bear Lake, isn't she beautiful! And yes, I am brave putting myself out there in a swimsuit but hey, it is what it is!!! This second layout I went a completely different way to show how versatile this line of paper is. This gorgeous girl is my oldest son's girlfriend of three years, Nikki - these are her senior pictures. I actually took her outfit shopping and took her to her senior photo shoot (Nikki does not have the best home life and has become like a daughter to me) so these pics are extra-special to me! For this layout, I used three different patterns of When the Weather is Fine line, using two of them and cutting them into even sized squares, then sewing them all together to create the centerpiece for the page. The letters in the title are cut out using the third pattern, pulling all the page elements together. I used my new stamp Stampin' Up! set Dreams Du Jour thinking it perfect for this theme! And, I added some rubons (well a lot of them really!) as well as some flowers with some flower brads in the center. There are little pearl accents all over the page, some buttons, and a chipboard bird that I painted and glittered, then mounted over a scalloped circle out of the dp. I am pleased with how both of these layouts came out and I am hoping that the Black Market Society folks like them too! Thanks for stopping by, it means more to me than you will ever know! Have a fabulous weekend - smooches!!!

Hi Alex, You really get around! I find you on almost every challenge post that I visit! Love your work!

Your son's girlfriend is adorable! Lovely pictures. I had promised you directions for a small book that I learned a few months ago. and it seems so hard to do a tutorial on it, I have decided to make you one--(it will be a while, as I am caught up in things right now) I know you would love to teach it in one of your classes! So when I get it done, I'll let you know. In the meantime, I will continue to enjoy all of your creations!!

Glad you had such a wonderful time with your boy! The way time flies, he will be home for Christmas before you blink your eyes twice!

Blessings
Joan
