Look Alikes

Hello! If you frequent my blog, then you know that I love scrapbooking. I don't often have a lot of time to do it, but it is one of my biggest passions. Well, when I saw that Sweet Pea Stamps was having a contest to incorporate their beautiful stamps into layouts. I quickly went through all of my Sweet Pea images (I have quite a number of them), and thought about which ones would work best in the photos I had. Here's what I came up with.

I LOVE ching-chou kuik's Aloha stamp. It's beautiful. But I wasn't sure if I could get a Mother/Daughter mermaid stamp to work....But, I think I did! I remembered that I had taken these photos of us a couple of month's ago during one of Rhiannon's Special Days at school (she goes to a co-op nursery school, so the parents get to participate on a rotation). I thought it would be fun to match the colors we were wearing. So, I colored the Aloha stamp to coordinate with us.

I colored the image with watercolor markers and alcohol markers. Isn't this image precious? I love it.

I'm really happy with how the page turned out. And I think it really shows how you can incorporate beautiful Sweet Pea images into everyday photos. I hope to have a couple more layouts made for this contest (you can have up to 3 entries). Fingers crossed that I will have time! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

This is such a great layout - I love how you've coloured the image to match you and your daughter's hair colours (love the blue streaks in your hair! :D). It's such a perfect stamp for a mother-daughter layout.

Such gorgeous photos and great colours on this page.

Thanks for taking part in our competition. :)
