A Pastel Page for Allie's Scrapbook


I was going to do Allie's Freshman Scrapbook all in Black, Red, and Kraft, but I changed my mind and did a few pastel pages after seeing the challenge on the 123 Challenge Blog. The challenge for March is to use pastels, the word "Dream," and frames. I also used the Stash Busters Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers which is to use 3 different paper patterns, two chipboard pieces, something pleated or crimped, and a die cut.

I had this fun laminated burlap and I painted the edges white with MS Craft Paint. The papers are from prima, the dream text is from the Text Cloud and Songbird image by Dawn Collins (available at Squigglefly), and the flowers and chipboard are from my stash. This picture is when Allie got her invitation to join her sorority.

Hope you aren't getting tired of pictures of Allie yet - I have about 130 more to go! LOL!

Allie is running for Senator and here is one of her campaign "buttons" for her Facebook page:


Hope you had a great weekend! Hugz!
