Recycled Object

Here is a LO I did this weekend of my brother, Preston, and my nephew, Aaron. I took this picture when I was back visiting in July. I used the Pagemaps sketch for their current contest. I also did this LO for a Sisterhood of Scrap "soup" challenge. One of the soup ingredients was to use a recycled object. My object can be found on the green paper. I used the empty tape roll from my previous post and did some stamping with it. You also had to use 3 different colors of cardstock (I used gray, white and blue). You had to used patterned paper (mine is the green stamped paper), buttons and ribbon or twine. This LO also works for the Scrapping Out Loud! weekly challenge where you had to use a quote on the page and pick one type of word for you journaling. I chose the quote "We find delight in the beauty and happiness of children that makes the heart too big for the body. Ralph Waldo Emerson" I also chose verbs for my journaling: inspire, dream, live, love, laugh, imagine, grow. I am a total English geek so this challenge was perfect for me! I am amazed I was able to do triple duty this weekend! Thanks for looking!

Your choice of paper works well. Now that I see the page finished, I can't imagine it done better in any other way. Of course I love the picture and the quote is perfect for what you see in the picture. You are a very talented artist!
