Memory Board to Scrapbook Part 5

Today I'll show the last few pages that were created from this board.  I DID add two extra pages, which I'll show tomorrow. At this point there were only a few pieces left to move to a scrapbook page. I made them into 3 pages:

This was another challenging page.  I was pretty much out of the blue patterned paper - only a little left for a mat for the colored picture.  This wasn't my best page, but it was enhanced by adding the mats with corner punches to the two black and white pictures, adding the word "Play" to the picture at the top, and adding the stamped saying as an embellishment (it was cut and matted using Spellbinders Marvelous Squares Dies).

I wanted to keep the title from the Memory board, but these words were pretty large to be a title with pictures on the same page.  I decided to just make them as a stand alone title page - embellished with elements cut with some Spellbinders dies. The were cut from the blue glimmer paper that was used as a mat for the words, and matted with the same glitter card stock that made up the base of the words.

This wedding page has the same gold background as several of the other pages.  I wanted a blue mat for the picture and was limited by the size I could cut with my die (same Cheery Lynn dies used on the page I showed yesterday). If I made it tall enough it was too wide and didn't show enough of the gold to suit me.  So, I turned it on the diagonal - worked great.  The corner treatments were made with a small leftover piece of the patterned paper cut into triangles.  These were enhanced with a bit of border that I had snipped off from the die-cut mats I showed yesterday.  Whew! It sure felt good to finish turning this board into scrapbook pages!
