Happy third birthday this month to Gingersnap Creations! I've been on the design team since October 2010, and have enjoyed being part of this crafting community and the Gingersnapper family. Now, as we come to the end of it, we are looking back and celebrating our fabulous community by making Family our theme in March.
We have Retro Cafe Art Gallery as our March sponsor: www.RetroCafeArt.com.
For this week's Chestnut theme challenge: GC141 Granny's Photo Album, I wanted to replicate the feel of the old family photo albums with black pages and found this black album cover in my stash. Rather than go with a heritage beige/black theme, I played off of this colored vintage image on the Applegate Family collage sheet from Retro Cafe Art and used some colorful embellishments with an old-timey feel. I like to think these children just returned from Sunday school followed by a church picnic.
You have until April 1, 2012 to link up your creation to the Gingersnap site where you'll find the challenge details, the fabulous prize from Retro Cafe Art, and inspiring samples from the other Gingers. And there's a new twist--you are voting for the Ginger Gems! See all the details here: GC141
Some of the materials:
Crafty Secrets Classic paper
Basic Grey Kissing Booth paper
K&Company Studio 112 sticker
This month's muse at Gingersnap Creations is Laura Carson. She also just happens to be one of my muses so this bit of news made me very happy. If you are not familiar with her work, I encourage you to visit her blog, Artfully Musing to see why her work is so inspiring.
