Out of My Box and Off to Convention

Yesterday I posted the card I made for my girlfriend's birthday. Over the next several days, I will be posting some of the layouts her family commissioned me to do for a commerative scrapbook for her 40th birthday. Scrapbooking in general is out of my realm of expertise so I was a little nervous about accepting the job, but my girlfriend assures me that she likes what I put together. All I can say is thank goodness for the CTMH how-to books which I relied heavily on for my layout designs.

This is the first page of the book and is a combination of two layouts in the Reflections Scrapbook Program (CTMH). I used a combination of Bottom Border Tucked In and Footnotes. Just in case your wondering, I smudged my friend's face in the picture as I am a strong believer in maintaining client privacy (the original picture does not look like this).

The picture her daughters gave me was black and white and I decided to go with that theme for this page.  The words came from a PTI stamp set called Top Ten.  I used nestabilities to cut out the tags and distressed the edges with black ink.

I used CTMH Grey Wool CS which I distressed along the edges and patterned paper from DCWV.  Amazingly, I found stickers that matched the paper perfectly. This sentiment is from PTI's Out on a Limb Sentiments.

I used CTMH Create a Shade paint on the chipboard and it gave it a shimmery silver look.  I covered the chipboard "K" with patterened paper from the DCWV glitter pack.  I also added some crystals to the patterened paper for added bling.

Next week, I am off to the CTMH Convention.  I can't wait to see all the new product that will be available in the coming months.  I will be tweeting and updating my new Flower Foot facebook page so for those of you interested, please be sure to follow me on twitter or "like" my FB page.  You can find the links on the sidebar.
