Dry Embossed Scrapbook Pages

Super simple double page layout to showcase four different photos
that were submitted for the Photo Of The Week in our local newspaper.

I used 12x12 Certainly Celery card stock from Stampin' Up!

A brass embossing template, stylus and light box were used to create the leaves;
all supplies were from Stampin' Up! 

The lines around the edge of the card stock were created with a stylus and
a scoring board. I scored the lines after I dry embossed the leaves.

The four photos aren't anything special, but they were sent in
to the newspaper to be considered for publication. 
I'm making a scrapbook of the photos I submitted.

One photo is of a HUGE spiderweb that went from at least 6 feet in the air
down to the ground. I did not want to see the size of the spider that made it!

Just below that photo is one of a grand daddy long legs spider 
on a hollyhock plant. There is also a tiny green bug of some sort that looks
like a leaf .

On the right half of the layout, the top photo is of our dry creek bed.
In 2012 our area was suffering from extreme heat and a drought.
The small creek that runs through our property was dry, 
in the 13 years we lived here we have never seen that happen.

The bottom photo is of the last cherry tomatoes of the season.
I thought it was kind of neat that there were three different tomatoes
all in a different stage (color) of ripening. 

I haven't done any journaling yet, I made do it on tags or
cut out a piece of card stock that is leaf shaped for fun. 
Then again, that would be a better idea for the fall photo
I have yet to scrap......
