A layout I did for SM this month. It was a product challenge. The colours have come up shocking in the scan, but then they were pretty shocking to start with, lol.
Oh, they're lovely papers. Very Americana, patriotic, stars and stripes. But very dark; very rich; and very heritage.
I'M OVER HERITAGE!!! Did you hear me? I said "I'M OVER HERITAGE!!!"
Give me vintage and I'll love you. Give me bright colours and I'll be like a pig in mud working on pages for the little fella.
It would seem that I am still labelled a heritage scrapper. Because I always seem to get the dark, sombre papers.
I don't think that I did the kind of layout SM were probably looking for with these papers when they sent them out to me, lol. Oh well. You get that. The photos are of my uncle and his mates, sometime in the 1950s.
And this layout is the reason that I declined to participate in another product challenge for SM this month. I like to do the pages that I want these days, with the papers I want. Time to give somebody else the chance to be challenged. And they'll probably enjoy it...
