A THOUSAND WORDS

It really is true about a picture being worth that many words. When I look back at my family photos I can easily go on at least that long with the story behind each and every one.


This week's FARM FRESH FRIDAY CHALLENGE is to incorporate a picture into a project. Since I have been slowly getting into digital scrap booking I decided to make a hybrid calender project featuring a picture of my sweet little niece.

Not sure if you can see but she is holding a tiny little fist full of miniature dolls and toys. If I remember correctly, this was the only way my sister could get her to stay in front of the camera and even then she was still in motion. It made for an awfully cute pic. Sweet little RUBY from THE GREETING FARM reminded me of those little dolls (and my niece herself)in my niece's hands but she was a bit too big for the project so I shrunk her. I haven't shrunk something in quite a while but it is a fun way to make your own custom embellishments. I have a tutorial on how I do it HERE.
The entire picture and papers are all a digital composition which was printed on glossy photo paper and attached to a chipboard base. Magnetic strips were placed on the back so my sis could put it on the fridge if she wants.

PROJECT STUFF
Stamp - Ruby, The Greeting Farm, Calender, Close to my Heart
Paper - Pam Lefors Designs, Ever After Page Kit
Etc. - Chipboard mini album, buttons, embroidery floss, felt flowers

Kim this is beautiful!! I love the hybrid idea of scrapbooking! There are elements from digi scrapbooking I'd love to borrow, but I still prefer the hands on approach. But this project did a great job of convincing me otherwise! :D
