FM74 Show Me Your Pleats

Today's Friday Mashup challenge is to create a baby project with pleating.

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a project with "Pleating".
  2. Or Make a "Baby Theme" project .
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project with "Pleating and a Baby Theme".

I hope you aren't too sick of my MDS pages yet.  It's really all I've been working on lately.  My stamps are so lonely!

My daughter went to a cute birthday party about a year ago at Snip-Its.  The kiddos got their hair braided, put on make-up and nail polish, colored a fan, and put on a fashion show.  It was adorable!

As you can see, no mashup for me today.  But a perfect excuse to use the Twitterpated kit with pleated ribbon. And I love those Candid Frames!

So I actually tweaked this page.  I thought the background was too bold, and I wanted it more faded.  I added a Whisper White Splatter stamp image (the single round one), enlarged it so it filled most the page, and then set the opacity to 60%.  What do you think now?

I really like this look.  To me, it looks like a canvas covered with weathered acrylic paint.

MDS Elements: Stamps: Vintage Overlays, Torn Edges, Splatter; Papers: Twitterpated; Color Palette: Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red, Pear Pizzazz, Basic Gray, Whisper White;  Accessories: Twitterpated ribbon, Twitterpated button, White baker's twine, More Candid Frames, Stitching.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful scrapbook page! I love the combination of DSP that you've used here and how you've laid out the photos! That twine bow on the button is just so cute!

Love your scrapbooking pages. They are so colorful and full of life. Love the way you combine all the elements. The pleated ribbon gives that special touch.
