One For You, One For Me

Oopsss!!! Anyone still coming in here to check for updates??? I am sorry for *missing in action* for the past week. My apologies, but with the kids going back to school after their June break, the driving tires me out easily again, especially now that I have a little bump to carry about till December...I do miss crafting lots but I have decided that I need to get started on my Teacher's Day presents and August challenge that I am hosting over at MWL given the speed that I am scrapping now...;-(

This is for my assignment over at MWL this week. Have you ever tried scrapping with multiple photos? A single photo is always easy to layer with papers and embellish but ultimately, scrapping is about presevering the moments and sometimes, multiple photos just tell the story on its own, like in this case of the kids sharing their snacks at Hongkong Disneyland. I first took out a packet of biscuit sticks to share among them but they finished it up so quickly and asked for more! Then the elder sister who gets very meticulous when the two are faced with their favourite stuffs, took over the division of assets. Lol!

The papers are from Websters Pages- Ladies & Gents' collection and Country Estate. I love the vellum that Websters Pages produced. The cut-outs add a subtle touch to the layouts and I tried crumbling up a vellum page before scrapping on it and it gives a different texture and adds dimension too! A very versatile material which sadly many companies have stopped manufacturing.

Some close-ups so that you can see the layering better...

The chipboard is from Dusty Attic. I mounted the photo on the chipboard base to matt it and then added the frame to draw attention to the most important photo! This is one way of making your core photo stand out when you have a series of photos from a single occasion to share.

Love that petal from Websters. So soft and subtle... ...The lollipop and leaves were pulled out from an older Websters Pages Petals pack from last year's collection! I rearranged them and paired them up with the yellow flower on this LO.
