Capturing Those Everyday Moments

everyday moments

My camera is rarely far from my reach, I love to snap those everyday photos like the one I took of my oldest daughter Chloe when we were out at a little patio in Paris, Ontario having a cold drink and some munchies.  To make up this page I went with the soft green paper from the new Sofiero collection and mixed it with some of the greens from the ‘Life in the Country’ collection and a little touch of ‘Crea Diem’ for elegance.

I like to use earthy colors with green when it comes to my embellishments, so I used a variety of embellishments from the ‘Naturals’ collection from My Little Yellow Bicycle..  The chipboard clock is a skelleton clock from Dusty Attic Designs.

For my title I used a word stamp from My Little Yellow Bicycle, but I wanted to give it a little more texture.  So I took some gloss medium (I used the gloss medium from Dusty Attic, Glossy Accents would work as well) and just followed the lines of the stamp, it give the title a nice darkness and a great shine.

I hope you enjoyed my project today, and remember, you don’t just have to scrap those special occasions, scrapping those everyday moments can bring back a lot of fond memories.

    Oh I just love the earthy colours. I can see that you’ve used reinforcement tape as decoration. I think it’s really decorative but haven’t used it myself in a couple of years. You got me inspired to bring it back again. Your background work and details are amazing as always.
