Creative Scrappers #157 & Pion Design

Design team reveal day for the Creative Scrappers sketch #157 by Aphra Bolyer. I knew right away I was going to love this layout. The sketch is so fantastic. I used some more fabulous Pion Design papers for this one in a color I rarely scrap - purple! This is such a gorgeous plum that it was easy to scrap to my taste though (I really struggle with lilac tones).

I had these pregnancy photos taken with both of my sons that were supposed to be sepia but turned out halfway between black & white and sepia. The purple tones in the Pion Design papers (Studio of Memories collection) were perfect to complement this printing mistake. I have a very strong bond with my kids and they do with each other too. This is a very special memory to preserve... waiting for their baby sister! I now regret not taking photos like this of my other pregnancies (hubby took the pictures too!). I was almost 8 months pregnant here...


I created some flowers using my recent Lily Flower Tutorial. Instead of white paint and chalk, I used brown inks on the edges since the paper was so dark I and didn't want to cover up the pattern on it.


Here is the gorgeous sketch that I flipped sideways and upside down.



Thanks for stopping by to take a look and please be sure to check out the rest of the Creative Scrappers DT's interpretation of this beautiful sketch.
