52 Week Scrapbook Challenge - Use a Transparency on a Page

Hello, my friends! I have another Challenge page for you today, and it contains a couple of really fun firsts for me! The challenge was to use a transparency on a page. So guess what I did? I made my own transparency! Does that work? I actually didn't look into it before I tried it! lol Guess what else I did? I used digital images for the very first time! Yay! All the images on this page are digitals from a wonderful site I just discovered called Free Vintage Digi Stamps. You can find them right HERE. I know you want to, but please don't go there until you've finished here! :o)
It's so nice to be back on track with this Challenge. There are only eight more to go. Remember I'm doing 8 X 8 pages, so that gives you some perspective on this page. Here the background is the transparency. You know that I just have to do a cream and black page every once in a while...and it was high time. I had plans to make a really fancy "couture" flower for the pop of red. However, the light was fast fading here and I really wanted to get this page posted today. So I decided this pretty Prima would just have to do! I hope you all have a weekend full of JOY!! :o)


Papers: Recollections Cardstock;
Border Punches: EK Success, Martha Stewart;

Oooh la la, c'est manifeque (sp?)

Great page you have made, my Friend. I'm especially taken with the punched out inner frame on the black paper. That is exceptional!

Love you - Leslie

Beautifully elegant page and love how you made the background into a transparency :) Very clever! The digi images all work well together and the hint of red with black and cream bring the whole thing to life. Love it!

Nancy, I'm so glad I finally had a chance to come over and spend a few hours here tonight. You've been doing some beautiful work that's given me a lot of inspiration. I especially appreciate your scripture journals and have started one myself. Well, sorta. I've been taking pictures and writing down the events on my calendar. It's just getting it together! God bless you!
