Scrapbooking Memories Blog Hop

Hello there and welcome to my blog today! It's a special day today in blogland as Scrapbooking Memories Magazine are having a blog hop combining the talents of the current Scrapbooking Memories Masters and the Creative Team.

If you've been following the blog, you will have come here from the link in Anita Stokes' blog and my post is the 4th in the hop today.

All of today's posts are designed around a theme given to us by Scrapbooking Memories, and it is up to you to guess what that theme is! Once you think you know head over to the Scrapbooking Memories blog and have a guess in the comments section there.

It's important to visit all the blogs in the hop today to gather all the clues you will need to guess. The blog hop stated earlier today on Leonie Neal-Dawson's blog, so if you've come straight here, make sure you go back to the start to get all of the clues. Good luck everyone!

My layout that I'm sharing today is this one of my great niece Amber-Rose, who is normally more than happy to pose for my camera, but on this particular day she had a few moments of unusual shyness.

For the background I used a sheet of Echo Park Ombre paper which I chopped and switched around and attached to white cardstock. Using texture paste and a small Prima mask, I added the random patterned texture in the background.

The matting for the photos are some various Amy Tangerine patterned papers and the cute little yellow frame is from a pack of 12 Dear Lizzy frames. Washi tape, self-adhesive lace, flowers and a ticket were added for some extra interest.

The chipboard flowers from Words Or Whatever have been coated with a layer of white gesso using a coarse brush for texture, and then coloured with Stampin' Up ink in Yoyo Yellow and then finished off with some knotted sewing cotton.

And finally I have used some Basic Grey small alphas and AC fabric Thickers for the title.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today and having a look. I would love it if you left me a comment to let me know you've dropped by. Can you guess what the theme is yet? Your next clue is on Georgia Heald's blog and will be posted at 2pm, so head over to her page next to see what amazing creation she has come up with for today's theme.
