Serenity Scrappers is having another layout challenge! I don't make many layouts but have challenged myself to do my very best to complete them whenever Serenity Scrappers has a layout challenge. That way, I do get some pages added to my album through the year!! I am up to my eyeballs in research and homework, so this was a wonderful excuse to take some time out to preserve some sanity too!! (I apologize for being behind in my blogging. I hope to find some time next week to visit more than I have been.)
The challenge this time is to make a 12x12 layout and use inks and punches to create it. I made this layout using a photo of my father holding me when we lived in Netheravon, Wiltshire. The computer-generated title of my layout is "Do You Want a Pilot?" which has a double meaning here. My father was a pilot in the Royal Army Medical Corps (Britain) and he also loved to sing a little song to me, "Do You Want a Pilot?" (which actually refers to a pilot of ship).
I used papers from My Mind's Eye and kraft cardstock. I inked all my edges with Chocolate Chip ink from Stampin' Up. The borders, squares, butterflies, layered flowers, hearts and corners were all cut using a variety of punches. I also added some pink pearls and a bit of hemp to finish things off.
