Top Note Brackets

This page is for my Ranch Album - odds and ends of photos taken at the ranch in Roy. I usually end up taking tons of photos everytime we go up there, but only use a half dozen or so for my Family Scrapbook and in the kids' individual scrapbooks. So, I also have a Ranch Album - for those 'extra' photos!

One time when we were playing over at the dam, I stopped taking pictures of the kids in the water and started chasing a tiny, beautiful blue dragonfly. It's not a real dragonfly - I'm not sure what they are really called, but they are so pretty and they don't hold still! I ended up taking some pictures of several plants and captured one photo of my bug - but not as close to him as I had hoped! You can barely see him in the center photo along the bottom of this scrapbook page - if you click on it, it's a lot bigger.

Anyway, I haven't ever scrapped these pictures before because I usually focus on the kids in my pages. Brian already thought I was crazy for scrambling around on my hands and knees taking these photos and then even more so when I had them printed. So he'll just laugh when he sees that I scrapped these pictures!

I created the brackets on this page by running two pieces of Night of Navy cardstock through the Big Shot with the Top Note die. Then I moved those two pieces about a half inch off the die and ran them through the machine again. I'm pretty happy with them and they are a perfect size for scrapbooking - whether to frame a photo or a title. The bottom border of Night of Navy cardstock is punched with the Scallop Edge punch and then each scallop is poked with my paper piercer. I used the Taffy Alphabet, stamped in Night of Navy Craft ink, for the title, with the ampersand from Short Order alphabet. The rest is handwritten with a Night of Navy marker. AND I used Orchid Opulence AGAIN! who knew I would use that color so often!

Stamps: Taffy alphabet, Short Order alphabet
Cardstock: Sage Shadow, Blush Blossom, Orchid Opulence, Night of Navy
Ink: Night of Navy Craft
Accessories: Night of Navy marker, Scallop Edge Punch, Top Note die
