The Power of Blending

I am new to the whole digital scrapbooking thing. Well, not too new, but with in the last 8 months new. I have never really done a page where there was any blending involved. It is an easy process and the end result sure gives you a wow factor. I did one today. I copied a layout that my big sister had done a while back. She is my idol. She has been scrapping for a long time and she is my mentor. She has taught me everything I know. She still teaches me. Good thing for Hello, or else I would have been stumped with this layout too. She is my crutch. I am so glad I have her to fall back on when I get stumped or my page just looks plain ugly, she isn't afraid to tell me if a page is ugly. And surprisingly it doesn't hurt my feelings when she says, "Uhm, no that is bad". I love that about her. A lot of times she tells me to just move something ever so slightly and it makes a difference. She is so smart. Anyway, back to blending. She showed me the way with the large eraser and then she was my inspiration with her layout. You can see her layout here. From that this is what I came up with.


I used one paper from the Oscraps Jolly O Collab kit and the ribbon too. The rest of the credits you can find here. This was a really fun layout for me to do. I think I will do more like it. I think I will need to scraplift my sister more!! She has awesome pages!! I love her clean simple lines. Anyway, nothing real exciting has happened today, just a scrap page. So, until next time y'all come back now ya hear.
