I live here in California so I participate by creating something that can be offered in a silent auction at the event. I thought I would share what I created before it gets packed up and shipped off this week to my friend Alane.
The Photo Shadow Box Tray (16 x 12") is 7gypsies of course, as is the easel it is sitting on. The paper is from My Minds Eye - Kraft Funday, 6 x 6 pad that I picked up at my local scrapbook store, The Shabby Scrapper.
On a side note, it has been years since there has been a scrapbook store in my area (I am talking 150 miles in either direction). So nice to walk in, see great displays, paper and embellishments. Seriously, a darling store. So if you are on the Central Coast of California, maybe vacationing at Pismo Beach stop by at 1045 Grand Ave, Arroyo Grande, CA. #805-489-4430
Now let me show you the details...
memo pin and a cork. I added some text paper and a vintage watch face. The hanging dots are part of an extra embellishment pack from MME.
Apothecary bottles and background card are 7gypsies and the words "beautiful life" came from the new chitchat stickers from Idea-ology.
swivel clasp. The swivel clasp is hanging from a hook created by 7gypsies specifically for the trays. Can't get enough of these.
The metal piece, I believe, came from my visit to Red Lead Studios (my favorite store in St Louis). The little dog is from a Monopoly game. I just gave him a brown coat of Alcohol Ink.
Again, if you want to know more about YSC or find a local chapter you can click here for the home page then click on the city closest to you.
And if you live near Dulth, MN and might want to participate in the 15 hour scrapbooking event on April 21st, you can register here.
cheers to Alane for her ongoing efforts in this cause!
