It's not very often, that I do a page that isn't related to my children. But for the March/April Issue Challenge #1 at Club CK, I decided to use some photos of me and my sister from back in the 80's. The challenge, was to create a layout highlighting a special friendship. My sister and I are 4 years apart in age, and we definitely had our share of fun, but we also had some major fights too. But that's what sisters are for, right? Now that we are adults, we enjoy a great friendship...and don't have to worry about the fights anymore!! :)
I used Crate Paper's Restoration collection on this page. It worked really well with the older photos and I wanted to create a girly feel, since the page was about sisters. I fussy cut all of the flowers and added some pop dots under a few, to give it more dimension. The photos were polaroids and I just scanned them and turned them black and white. I finished the page off, by adding a stitched border around the edge. I always like the little bit of texture that stitching adds to a layout!!
