Cheers! – A counterfeit kit layout
|Start:||Last week, or was it the week before, I was to the point of having that background sheet of hash marks still uncut in my kit. It was my least favorite paper in the kit – and left me puzzled about how to incorporate it on a page. I decided to analyze it. What did the paper say to me – besides “meh”. It insisted that it was very active and cheerful. Okay, I will grant it that. So why not use it on a page about my young son - that is, about my son when he was younger.|
|Style:||And then by serendipity I spotted a single sheet of Crate Paper Craft Market paper with the wood design, and decided to use it to |
I also had not opened the ribbon pack for this paper, so I ripped into two of the three colors and started a banner down the side. Wanting to add to the ribbon, I went to my basket of gold goodies. I found the round tag and a clothing tag with the perfect sentiment. Then I finished up a visual triangle of gold and circular items by the title and by the journal block (still to be written on).

|Now that I’m done, I think I’ll go celebrate with a cold beverage as well. Did you notice that my son is the one with the electrolyte sport drink and not the sugary can of soda. Who’s the good mom!|
And then there’s this exciting news:
I just recently discovered this challenge blog – and I really liked the idea of being challenged to scrap pictures of myself. Honestly, I’m not at all photogenic. Truly, my family will tell you that I don’t photograph well. I needed the nudge to scrap more photos of myself.
And, as long time readers of my blog know, when I think an idea is truly terrific – I jump in with both feet. So I was really pleased when they chose me to serve on the design team with all these other talented ladies.
Scrap on, shall we?
