I love playing along over at this blog! One of the reasons, is they make it soeasy to win stuff!! Did you know that you can enter older layouts that meet the challenge criteria? How cool is that? You don’t have to create anything new to play along – but of course you can if you want!!
So one of the criteria for this challenge is “fussy cutting”! Well, I LOVE fussy cutting and on my last DT assignment, I did quite a bit of it! So, I’m entering that layout for this challenge! This layout also meets a second criteria – “focus on journaling”!
You can find all the criteria for this challenge by clicking here.
And this time Jillibean Soup is sponsoring the prize so you’re going to want to play along!!
I’ve been feeling a little nostalgic lately having found some old photos my mother sent to me quite a while ago – probably over 15 years ago. They were still in the original envelopes that she mailed them in tucked away in a box under my stairs. I had decided to start cleaning out under there and found them.
Here’s one of the hundred’s of photos. I already scrapped another one. The layout is in my last post.
So, now I’m on a mission to photograph each photo, print them out and start getting the memories scrapped!! I think it’s important to record details with photos so information can be preserved along with the photos. And scrapbooking is the absolute PERFECT way to do this!
I also started looking back to my very first scrapbook pages I created. Boy! My style has certainly changed! LOL! I should photograph some of those layouts and share them with you too! There are so many photos that I really love, so I’m going to reprint my favourite ones and scrapbook them again…using my current style! ;-)
Anyway, it’s the long weekend here in Canada and, unfortunately, I’m feeling under the weather so I won’t be doing much but trying to feel better!
Quite a while ago, my mother sent me a whole bunch of photos from when I was younger. I of course don’t want to use the original photos on my scrapbook pages, so I took pictures of them and printed new ones out. It’s one of those photos that I used with sketch.
The bold patterned papers and the lined paper are also from the Basic Grey “Hey Girl” collection. The colours and mood of the papers worked just amazingly with my layout!
With the lined paper, I roughed up and tore the edges a bit to make the paper look old and then used a punch on the one side to make it look like notebook paper. I popped up some of the flowers I cut out to give the page some dimension and added a chipboard butterfly from Creative Embellishments, chipboard letters from American Crafts and a wooden word “Darling” from Recollections, the Michaels store brand.
I really enjoyed scrapbooking this old photo and look forward to getting all the rest of them on pages too!
The party is called “Admit One” and the criteria is using tickets on your project, favorite movie or the last movie you saw, what’s your favorite thing to do at a carnival, use the number one on your project and a few other categories. And if you scroll all the way down to the bottom of the criteria list, you can submit projects where you have used Fancy Pants Design papers!
So that’s what I’m doing…again!! LOL!
I created this layout originally as a design team assignment for Child’s Play Challenges. I used Fancy Pants “Be Different” collection. It worked perfectly with my photos!
This time around we were asked to get inspired by The Flintstones!
I have to admit, I didn’t get especially creative for this one! LOL! I had taken a picture of my son recently while he was playing Minecraft and when searching through my pictures for this challenge, I noticed the Flintstones just happen to be on the TV at the time, so that’s the picture I used!
