Weekly Layout

This week I am sharing a layout about last year's Race for the Cure. Posting this particular layout shows the world that I am 13 months behind in my scrapbooking!  I have pics from the 2013 RFTC as well!  Oh me.

Here's the LO:
 It is based on this past week's sketch @ Let's Scrap:
Yes.  This LO has lots of Pink!  That's okay.  I LOVE PINK!

The Race for the Cure is a big deal for me.  You can read more about the event here.

You will notice that the journaling was copied exactly from the blog post; which I just realized, helps immensely when you are behind in your scrapbooking.  I did not have to rely on my memory. 

I built this LO around the 12" x 12" white FINISH line image from a Cricut cut long ago.  It is actually the leftover/negative paper/pieces (yes, I may have a problem throwing away anything!).  It worked perfectly for this LO and the sketch.  However, I did have to re-arrange the right side of the sketch to make it work. 

I built the entire LO as one big 12" x 24" piece of art. When it was complete, I simply sliced it down the middle!  Yep. Cut right through the pics and the journaling!

I want to show you some of the close-up detail of the LO:
The patterned background paper was a pretty good match, but it needed something to set it apart.  I distressed and sanded the edges.

I hope you can see the glitter-y images!  The "survivor" photo on the rh side is matted with the pink glitter paper and the white patterned pink ribbon paper at the bottom is splattered with glitter!  You will also notice that the big pink ribbon in the center is embossed with silver foil.  The "cure" is from the same set and they are both mounted on pop dots.

After I had the entire LO assembled, I thought that the pink background paper was a bit boring and just too much pink.  So, I had to mask off my photos and embellishments and stamp over a completed LO!  Well...that's sure Not easy!  I actually stamped with a white pigment ink, but the cardstock just soaked it up!  I'm happy with the resulting subtlety it left behind.

I was able to find some pink alphas that matched.  They almost look as though they were cut out from the white cardstock.  All of the different stacked dimensions made for an interesting title.
