Just the Two of Us...

I've started playing at Scrap It With A Song - a groovy blog that uses song titles and lyrics as inspiration to scrap.  I say that I 'started' as I entered one layout, back in September, then almost got entries in, but things fell by the wayside (so much that I missed a DT call too!). But, I'm going to make a conscious endeavour to scrap more, and I'm sure by entering scrap challenges, it will force me to get my pages finished before going into the albums!

This week, the challenge theme was "Just the Two of Us".... the lyrics provided were the Will Smith version (and I've been under a rock, because I haven't heard it!).... I'm such a fan of Austin Powers, the only version I have in my head is Dr Evil's!

Ingredients: Cardstock - Cre8tiv; Red Marker - Marvy; Rubons - Kaisercraft; Red Rick Rac; Silver Belt Buckle.

I don't often do pages with multiple photos - and a layout where the photos are so skewed is also not usually me.  But, as this was a memory that I wanted to keep, and several photos existed, they were used.  I think it was a fluke that I had printed a large one, and several smaller ones, and I think they came together nicely!

I don't often use such busy backgrounds, either... but because I was blocking the photos, I think it diminishes the 'busy'.  I didn't embellish much, rather favouring bolder bellies to sit in the foreground and to lessen the background impact.

I matted all the photos with red cardstock, allowing only a thin edge to show, and the photos were edged in red marker.  The rubon sentiment running along the top of the photos was a heart framed sentiment, which I cut to run as a single line, using the frame as leader dots... and the sentiment reads: "The Moments we Share are the Memories we Keep Forever...".The buckle has a fantastic relief texture of holes...where one might place diamond backed rhinestones if making jewellery.  It has a fantastic faux diamente look, and you can't tell that there is no real sparkle unless you're up close!  I can't wait to see what next challenge song will be.... and thanks for peepin'!
