Can I touch the Fish???

Hello friends

This week Nicole (my daughter) handed me a myriad of photos of Scarlett (Grand-daughter), they arrive at regular intervals for me to add to her scrapbook, I have been remiss in completing any pages of late, so when I added these latest ones to my pile I have to confess I was feeling a tad guilty!

It is a different mindset to create a scrapbook page, as opposed to designing cards etc. I like to add elements that connect with what I am seeing in the photo, I thought these two were great.

You probably thought the title of my post a little obscure, but when you see the page it will all make sense.

Scarlett always likes to touch the fish.

I first made a stencil from the TH  decorative strip-cobblestone and made my Bg using victoria velvet and weathered wood distress inks, I also diecut strips of scallops from this to represent the scales of the fish.

Dad loves to go fishing and this is a rather large Snapper that he has caught off the coast of NZ. 

A shell, gauze and lace are the elements I included for texture.
Her reaction to the feel of the skin is priceless.

Fantastic layout, Sue! And you are so right - that reaction really is priceless! Darling photos! Love all the pretty soft colors you've used, and, as always, wonderful texture!

The background and elements you have included Sue are perfect for the fishy theme and Scarlett is beautiful, such a sweetie and obviously full of fun. Love this layout.
