CKC Blog Hop!

Welcome to my part of the CKCB Members' Blog Hop. You should have come here from the lovely Susanne...
I chose to work with Challenge #2 which was to use recycled print and here's my layout...

My print came from my bird book.  I get a bit weird using print as I have seen a layout with a photo of a beautiful toddler with a rude word on the backing paper.  I figure bird books are a pretty safe area - no rude words!

I struggled for a while 'losing' my photos against the patterned papers.  I added a sheet of soft pink vellum between the layering and the photos to get the right balance.

Working on using up snippety bits of left over lace :)

Apparently the most important detail of the Christmas present featured in the layout is that it's pink!!  Funny little thing!!

Thanks for stopping by and now you should hop over to Margie...
The full blog hop list will be published on the link-to-the-CKCB so if you get lost along the way, head over there to find your way back onto the hop.
Don't forget to leave me a comment to let me know you were here and happy hopping!


  1. Lovely layout I love how you used the pink vellum to mute out the colors. I really need to pick up some old books :)

  2. The vellum was a perfect idea for softening the background. So pretty. The photographs pop!

  3. I love how you've muted the papers with the vellum I always struggle to use vellum and never thought of using it like this!

  4. Love the way the photos really stand out above the softening vellum - a great technique. Great pics too - shows how absorbed she was!

  5. This is so soft and lovely. And now you are making me wonder if I should have read all the text on a book page I recently scrapped - yikes!

  6. Love the use of the pink vellum - vellum is so often a go to for me. And you made me smile about the words on the print paper - I often worry about that too! Great page and lovely to have you in our hop today

  7. Lovely and soft! Very pretty!

  8. So soft and sweet and the vellum was a perfect choice.
