Like Mother, Like Daughter

Today and tomorrow I will feature another crafter's work, my daughter Ashley. Ashley is a college student, and whenever she comes home on breaks she scrapbooks. Of course she always uses all my best papers and products that I've been saving for 'that special project', but we won't talk about that! LOL! Her dad says she developed her love of scrapbooking from her mother, and even though I've taught her a lot, I think she is a much better scrapbooker than me because she is a bit more artistic.

The first page is the story of Ashley's engagement to Jason. She took a beautiful piece of designer paper that already had flowers and birds on it, and applied acrylic paints to make it even more special. The letters are all Cuttlebug dies.
The second page are pictures of the area where we live. The leaves are from Walmart (only $1.00 for a huge bag!) and have glitter on them.

The third page is more engagement photos and the story of how when Wheaton Students become engaged, they go 'Up the Tower' and ring the bell. The tower is part of the oldest building on campus. Its such a neat tradition. The tower picture was actually a picture in the Student newspaper that has Ashley's and Jason's names on it. Ashley photographed the newspaper article then aged it on the computer. Leaves, buttons, jewels, were added for embellishment.

The fourth page are pictures of the Jason and Barney family at Thanksgiving. The Turkey is a Sizzix Die.

The final page is of our family at Buena Vista Park in Alma the day after Thanksgiving. I absolutely love how Ashley did the title. She took the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and highlighted it with chalk for the background behind the letters. She also added a lot of texture to the page with twine and another Embossing Folder.
Come back tomorrow for a few more pictures of Ashley's Scrapbook pages.
Have a great day! Amy
