Sometime this month I will get to some pages for myself, but for now, I am continuing to share the pages I am working on for my co-worker. Her family took a trip to New York that she wanted to include in her scrapbook. I still had a sketch saved from when DCWV used it as one of their monthly challenges that I knew I wanted to use eventually. I was looking through my paper and wanted to use paper with red in it, since I knew I had to put an apple on the page for New York and found this wonderful (but sad that it is discontinued) paper line from Quick Quotes called Ode to Joy. You might recognize it from my Father's Day Card.
I followed the sketch pretty closely since I loved it so much!
I used Blue Hawaiian and Maraschino Cherry Powder Puff inks
Close up of the title. I used the skyline from Plantin Schoolbook and added some stickles for city lights.
I knew I had to put an apple somewhere on the page, and it is such a perfect spot for journaling!
The strip of bling is from Mon Ami Gabby. It is a whole wide pice of bling that I cut apart into a couple strips. You can see one here, there is one under the title and another one further over on page 2.
My mom has this awesome Statue of Liberty Stamp that I knew I wanted to use. I stamped it with Blue Hawaiian on one of the pattern papers from this line and edged it with stickles.
And now for the winner of my blog candy giveaway. Sorry I was late on this!
