{ LO#08 - An Endearing Moment }


This month's Moments Recorded Challenge is on Mini Album but I not good at that. So want to at least complete my LO of the month first.
I liked this particular photo very much so I printed it out some time back but din get the chance to scrap it. So it is pretty obvious that my next LO is for this photo.
On top of that, I have seen an LO from a magazine where the person concentrate of the only picture in the middle and kept everything else plain and simple. I really like that effect so intend to scraplift it.
But after picking my base pattern paper (the embossed black pp), I can't find any simple suitable paper to match the black. Adding to that, I realized that I also dun have many border designs stamps. After I finally decided that I can use the Autumn Leaves' On The Edge stamp set, I realized that I dun have nice ink color on black!!!
Finally today, after reaching home early, decided to one shot complete this LO...
Tried out the embossing powders I have and the silver embossing for the border stamps turns out to be not bad after all... (Hmm.. although I could have "clean" up the fine embossing powder to prevent "dust-like" patches ard the actual stamp image).

Then came the problem with which pp to use for the matting of the photo. Only after much try and error, found that the DCWV Luxury stack matches the silvery color. And it looked great!

And I get to use my new Verve stamps which I really liked a lot for the "You're a DREAM COME true"... Hopefully I can use them again soon....

Well, lastly, is the journaling portion... my english not that powerful lah.. so ask my ah lao to contribute lor... so long long essay shorten till this ....
"The perfect ending to an unforgetable SSO performance:
An endearing moment between Father & Son"
Perfect... (And so glad that the SB Club ladies liked this LO design too.. yeah!!)

ps: Oh... after displaying the LO in my room, the next morning Rhys woke up and actually spotted the new LO! He said "Papa and Rhys!! NICE!!!"....
Made my effort all so worthwhile.... :)
