I started with the photo that inspired my page. Here is the picture that I wanted to use - it was taken on Easter Sunday in our backyard, and is of our daughter, Anne:
When I looked at the photo, I was struck by how much she has grown in the past few years, and wanted to create a special page to commemorate this. You can pick any photo that inspires you!
I started with Echo Park "So Happy Together" patterned paper that I had in my stash:
I used this paper because it had a cute scene already started. I didn't want the (cute) truck in my scene, but I wasn't worried because Anne's picture was going to cover it up.
Next, I decided that I wanted to extend the fence in the background of my photo onto my page. I did this by cutting up an old piece of Dusty Attic chipboard that I had on hand. You can use stickers, or whatever you have, or you can even draw your own fence it you want to!
I used the right side of this chipboard piece in the past, and this one was just waiting to be used. So I cut it up and used the pieces to make my fence.
I had some burlap left-over from other projects, and I pulled it apart to make my "grass."
Finally, I also had some Donna Salazar patterned paper that looked just like the deck, so I cut it to look like the deck complete my scene.
I added a sticker strip from the "So Happy Together" collection to the bottom of my scene. I wanted to create flowers there.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and taking a peak at my page. I hope that you can find inspiration to make your own scene! It's really easy!
