At Sixteen

One more scrapbook share and then I'll do some more punching.  I bet you can make it another day without your punch fix.  If you can't, pull out your punches and see what you can come up with - might surprise yourself!

This is for another challenge on the group I talked about yesterday.  This is for the color challenge.   You were supposed to use teal, brown, yellow and orange.  Neutrals allowed.

I used those colors AND a sketch from this blog from January 21st.  Wow - layouts are so much easier when you chose a starting point and the possibilities aren't TOTALLY endless.

Here is what I did using a photo of  "kid still at home"
I used the new Sweet Pea designer series paper stack from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  The @ and the 16 are coasters covered in paper and run through the Big Shot using the SU Alphabet Simple Numbers Die.

I'd like to impress you with some fancy design talk about the colors and the circle showing energy blah blah blah but.... do you care? and would you believe my B.S.?

I really did make the teal line into an arrow to represent how this feisty red head has life by the tail and is ready to move on into whatever the world holds for her.  I'll probably add some journaling to that effect on the teal border on the left side and the top.

Your scrapbook are just as awsome as your punch art!

Cute page!

I love it, but you WILL NOT enable me to buy that Alphabet set! This is a great page, and she really does look like she is ready to take on the world. Just think, it won't be long and you will be saying College Girl 1 or College Girl 2, or will #1 be done before #2 gets there?

Thanks for sharing. I joined the site and am looking forward to starting on my scrapbooks again. I think I will have a look at the sketch site, too. Need to update my look. (for my pages,lol)

Oh Dano - if you are going to be scrapping you are going to want that alphabet die!

But you can get the numbers with the '@' and the '&' and a little flower - all separate from the LETTERS. And having the numbers is handier than you might think with scrapbooking (and birthday cards)

College girl will be THE GRADUATE before 'kid that lives at home' goes off to school. Way better for the bank account!
