Colorful Delight

12X12 layout All of the Lights Banners December 2012 Kit Madeline Fox

As soon as I saw Scraptastic's All The Lights kit, I knew what I wanted to scrap! I had several colorful photos from our evening spent at an amusement park last spring, and I knew they would be perfect. The paper with all the colorful circles reminded me of the bokeh you get when taking a picture at night with lights in the distance. It had so many pretty colors too!

You'll notice below that one of my photos was particularly blurry. We were both moving around so fast, I in one of the bumper cars and my son in another, but I love how the movement adds to the story. Believe it or not, it was my first time in a bumper car, and at first I didn't know how to make it move. I even hopped out of one and into another, thinking the first was broken! Finally I figured it out and had a blast.

 

Aqua and pink enamel dots give added dimension to the colorful paper below:


The title is made from a mix of lettering: large letter stickers (main kit), small letter tiles and Heidi Swapp Buzz word (add-on). A paper scrap from a previous kit peeks out from behind the photo, grounding my title. See that little bumper car button! I've had it in my stash for years and can't believe how wonderfully its colors coordinate with this kit!


I love the amusement park feel that this banner gives to the page. My favorite flags are those at either end, the ticket stub and yellow duck. Too cute!


Before I go, here's a little something extra, lagniappe as we say in south Louisiana. Created with the All The Lights kit and add-on, this page shows a couple of photos taken while wandering through the French Quarter with my sisters last summer:

Happy Scrapping! I hope you are having a great holiday season!

    Absolutely love the colors in the featured kit. You ladies did a wonderful job displaying them!

    I had the same thought about the colored dot pp — that it looked like haloed lights at night or blurred out in the camera lens. It made a perfect accent for the fun photos. I liked the New Orleans LO too — would love to visit there some day!

    I had the same thought about the pp with the colored dots — it does remind me of the blur of lights at night. Your bumper car LO is so nicely designed; and I enjoyed the French Quarter LO too. I hope to get to New Orleans some day, just not during Mardi Gras!
