A little scrappin'...

My mother-in-law needed a scrapbook page done.  Her nieces were creating a scrapbook for their parents' 40th wedding anniversary!!  {wow... that's all I'm sayin'... wow}  Bev enlisted my help in this little endeavor, since papercrafting is "my thing"  :)  And this is what I came up with:
 

I think it came out very pretty, for NOT having any FREAKIN' PHOTOS on it.  That's correct, my friends, this is a 12x12 scrapbook page without photos.  Bev wrote a wonderful little letter of memories and I printed it out in a dark brown ink on white paper... I then distressed and inked it to age it a bit.
 

I layered some old pink cotton pillowcase strips amidst some crocheted trim and patterned paper.  I borrowed my buddy Vicki's edger punches and then sanded the edges.  All cardstock has been sponged to add a little dimension.  Oh, and that big ol' pink felt embellishment... yeah, it's another Michael's $1 bin coaster... me likey.
 

Stamps:  Fanciful Vintage, Tag Tidbits ("love"), Edge Designs (tag flourish)
Other:  EK Success edger punches, MM pearl flowers, felt coaster, Brown Scrapper's Floss, buttons, Loopy Brads, ivory safety pin, MM felt heart, misc. trims & fabric

I think this last photo looks like a fabulous card, which I may be duplicating soon once I get my hands on those edger punches again :)

What do you think?
