Celebrating Grandparents; BBTB Challenge

It’s time for another challenge on the Bitten By The Bug challenge site! The current challenge is Celebrating Grandparents.

I decided to create a scrapbook layout for a photo of my mom with my son and DIL at their wedding.

I used the Ole Cricut cartridge for the word “abuela” and the floral embellishment on the top right. (In case you’re wondering, abuela is Spanish for grandmother.)

I didn’t plan exactly the colors I was going to use. These pieces of cardstock were on my desk so I decided to go bright...I mean, really bright!

I wasn’t sure about the rest of the layout and how to coordinate the colors, but then I saw this paper pack that I’ve had for awhile.

This is a Walmart product and it is so fun and bright! I didn’t do much to the layout except double mat it and then use scrap pieces of cardstock to anchor the photo, title and floral embellishment. I also added some splatter to the lower right and upper left corners with FSJ Color Silk in Bubblegum.

Your on over to BBTB2 to link your Cricut project or just to check out the DT projects!
