Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!
For this hop we will be featuring the letter U. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their U element will be featured in their post. If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda’s blog ~ Scrappy Therapy

U is for Umbrella, uninked and unavailable!
There are not many U words or elements I can think of so I struggled to find a U that would be unique for you today. I decided on this Umbrella as I was preparing for my Girls Night In Fundraising event.which I call ‘Inky Pinky’ and we work with pink products from Close To My Heart. I could also have called this post uninked…as there is no stamping here at all! I also used some of my leftovers from kits that are now unavailable which of course is doing as we should using my stash.
For this years Girl’s Night In event all my guests are getting a selection of Chantilly PML Z1949 cards and the challenge to make a layout with them. One of those cards is the umbrella card with the sentiment ‘Let’s Dance in the rain‘ I have used in the layout below. It was my focal point around which I selected everything else.
I really like the sentiment and a few of the others I have placed on this double page spread. I love ‘Don’t forget to be AWESOME‘ and ‘Adventure Awaits the Daring Girl.‘ I have fussy cut some of the birds too. This layout has what I consider key elements – spots for photos and places to journal, and a bit of decoration and inspiration. It just needs the photos!
I now have the challenge of TAKING photos for a page I have already prepared! (Isn’t that familiar?) Photos in the rain…having fun! Probably with pink roses or a bra or two showing!!! Who knows, but I will do my best to find an awesome photo opportunity. (Easier said than done in an area that only gets a few inches of rain a year!)
Picture My Life cards do make great quick and easy to finish scrapbook pages. I hope you have been inspired by this one. The pink Ribbon icon is cut from the Artbooking Z1906 J key using Pink Glitter PaperZ1922. I love the way our glitter paper cuts! Use the settings heavy card stock and cut twice to ensure you get right through. The zipper lace is no longer available and I have used up leftover Lolly Doodle papers on this layout.
