Today I have a just because layout to share with you that I did for Purple Pumpkin. My mojo has been a bit lacking of late. Things have been very hectic there. DH found out he was being retrenched about 10 days ago. Luckily he has managed to secure a temporary job starting tomorrow. So I just decided to scrap a photo I liked for the fun of it.
The photo I have used is one I only recently discovered on a CD from many years ago which also held missing photos of my sons 6th birthday party. (He is now 16!). This layout features one of my favourite colour combinations - red and black. I have used a giant playing card which I received in a recent Purple Pumpkin boy goodie bag. I cut the card up to make it even bigger, strategically placing pieces of patterned paper over the gaps/joins. This is a good tip for making things go further.
Here are some close ups of my clusters using some Purple Pumpkin goodies.
In this one I used a black vinyl cog and a pirate felt round.
In this cluster I have used 2 types of washi tape, a black vinyl heart and a red spotty button.
