Making Memories, Celebrating Moments!

It is time to get our duel on....

Kelly and Jeanette, the hostesses for this month, came up with the wonderful theme "Making Memories, Celebrating Moments!" And, WOW!, did Jeanette send the Dazzler an incredible kit!

The kit included: 
Image: Art Impressions Picture Perfect  
Designer papers from Little Yellow Bicycle and Hampton Art Flashback
And embellishments of Washi Tape and a Photo Frame from Recollections; Kathy Davis Designs adhesive pearls, KI Memories rhinestones, Me & My Big Ideas Mambi Stick (camera), and Michaels ribbon and paper clip.  

With all this Making Memories kit goodness, I just couldn't bring myself to make a card.  I decided to make a 8 x 8 scrap book page...and, here it is....

I left the photo frame empty and will crop and put a small picture in there when I use this page.  One very special, recent memory I have is from about this time last year when my oldest DD graduate from high school!  Thanks for a great theme and great kit Jeanette and Kelly.

Please see my sidebar for the blogs of all the Dueling Darlings and check out their wonderful creations.

Deb, I think making a layout/scrapbook page was a perfect idea with this month's theme! Wonder why I didn't think of that!!?!??

And what a fun page it is! I love the way you used little squares of the DP and what a cute idea for putting the photo frame on with Washi Tape! Very creative!

The memories from your DD's graduation are precious, I'm sure... and I know you must be very proud of her! Kudos on her accomplishments!

I'm glad you are a Dazzler who is Making Memories and Celebrating Moments with us this month!

Debbie, it's a stroke of genius to make a scrapbook page! That way you really get to incorporate more of the goodies from the kit. Very smart!

I like your layout, everything is balanced and your coloring of the image is just right. I really like how you laid out the Making Memories words like that, it's clever and eye-catching!

I so like how you made a 'lil faux Polaroid photo and used the Washi tape to secure it. Great look! Reminds me of my grandma and how she chased us with that Polaroid camera when we were kids!
