Chinese Whispers Group 1 Round 5

This weekend's challenge on The Studio Amanda says 'I don't know about you, but I have so much old stash hanging around. Make a page that includes one of your oldest supplies next to one of your newest'.

I decided to combine it with my other Chinese Whipsers LO this month which was from Debbie- The Butty Shop. She did hers digi:
For mine I took some photos of Connor and a disappearing watermelon for a smile and made them black and white and brought the red of the watermelon out. I used some Sassafrass lass paper I ordered especially for the LO and some ribbon that was in my cardmaking stash before I even got to making scrapbook pages. I'm surprised it's still so bright to be honest :) I rotated the LO and moved the key elements about a bit for my lift. Mine is not as true to the original as I'd have liked but the papers I wanted to use just didn't work in a big piece under these photos so I just used the small strip and ignored the larger one.

Oooh this is fab!!! Love your layered up embellies and the strip of dotty paper - complements the photos without overwhelming them. :o)
