Film Fun

Do you remember my Flamingo Four post last week about my first time playing with an SLR? Well, I decided to make another scrapbook page with more photos from that same day. Gotta love the clothes from the 90's, lol! I started with a fabulous paper from my scrapbook-world-celebrity hero, Teresa Collins. This one is from her Now and Then collection.
I love this tab from the Pink Paislee Secret Crush collection. It adds instant fun! AND, Suzanne from Flamingo Scraps has made up a few Pink Paislee kits that include these rockin' tabs and then she deeply discounted them!
Since this was an LO about fun with a non digital camera (Remember when we actually used film in our cameras?), I thought it would be cool to use a film strip transparency. You know how some trends in scrapbooking are just so fun and you love them so much? Using film strips is that trend for me! And speaking of trends, a few big ones are camera shaped embellishments and wood veneers. I love how Prima has combined those two trends with their Wood Icons in a Box.
These tiny arrows are from the Pink Paislee Artisian Chipboard Elements. BTW, they are part of a Kit over at the Flamingo Scraps online store, AND it's on sale! They come in white, but I misted them with pink to add more color to my LO.
I love these flash cards from Teresa Collins. She always has the best sentiments and the colors on these will go with anything.
This doily was cut from a Pink Paislee Secret Crush paper. Don't forget the Pink Paislee kits are on sale at the Flamingo Scraps online store! These adorable stick pins from Maya Road add a touch of glam.
I cut the pink doily shape in two so I could get more mileage out of it and use it on two places in my LO. I used it here with a circle that I cut out of some Pink Paislee Secret Crush paper and a confetti heart from Pink Paislee.
This fun wooden ruler is just so cute and super trendy, too! The banner shapes are cut from a paper that I had left over from my December Flamingo Four project and a Heidi Swapp Book Keeping paper.
More confetti! It's a super easy way to dress up an LO. I did some inking on the edge of the Pink Paislee Secret Crush heart to add more color to my page.
I love the Teresa Collins paper with all the yummy words! I wanted to add focus to a few words that really fit the page so I drew a box around them!
