What a great day! Actually, this is going to be a great week… but more about that another time. Today is the first time I get to introduce you to Twilight Tuesday’s newest Challenge! A scrapbooking challenge! Now, you should probably know by now that scrapbooking holds a special place in my heart, so I am super excited to be bringing you a new scrapbook challenge every other Monday! How awesome is that? Here’s my challenge to you:
Welcome to the first Twilight Tuesday Scrapbooking Challenge! I am so excited about these new challenges. Every other Monday, I will be giving you a new topic. This topic will be taken from the pages of the wonderful Twilight Saga, and then I will reinterpret it to fit into our “real” lives! Next, YOU get to make a scrapbook page(s) about the topic! We want to know about you and your life! But, you can of course, make it about the books/movies as well! It’s up to you! We want you to have fun!!!
On to the first challenge… The wolf pack is made up of brothers. Not brothers by blood, but by the situation that binds them together. They are a family unto themselves. So, who’s in your pack? Who’s by your side no matter what? Is it your best friends? Maybe it’s actually your blood relatives! Are you a part of an extended military family where those on base with you are your new pack? Make a scrapbook page(s) or mini album about this very important bond!
So of course, I have a sample to show you.
Click on the pictures to see them bigger! As you can see, I did a page about my sisters' and I. These pics are from ‘07, during my Mom’s Birthday Bash. We were pretty goofy that day. You should see some of the other pictures. Ridiculous! My little sibs are definitely my Pack. When we are together, we can be pretty insane. We have a really good time together. Yeah, we fight… but that’s what we’re supposed to do! We’re Sisters!
So I sliced these photos up quite a bit as you can see. I felt like doing a technique I haven’t done in a while, so I thought of this! We are in my Mom’s backyard, which obviously has a lot of green, and I just wanted that to expand through the page. It creates a bit of movement too, which we were def. doing here!
For my title, I used super huge stamps from Magnetic Poetry (of all places!), cut out the letters and faux stitched one side where a shadow could be. I also “stitched” around one side of the photos too, and added the words “Sisters,” “Buds,” and “Dorks.” We are all of those things to each other, for sure!
Wondering about how the pictures came out black, white, and green? Here’s my tutorial from a previous blog post! Click HERE! It’s super easy, and it’s a pretty rad effect!
Now, move along to Erica’s to see her creation!
