Hi everyone – welcome to this month’s Child’s Play Challenge 1st of the month reveal. This month we teamed with Pixels and Paper to offer a super fun challenge with two chances to win. We had to use both a photo and a recipe (both at the end of this post).
I choose to use photos from our Christmas tree hunt in 2012…they fit the recipe well and the awesome sketch I saw at Creative Scrappers. All of the papers are from older Stampin’ Up lines, as is the red card stock. One tip I have for you…color your photo mats with ink. I love Stampin’ Up’s Cherry Cobbler, but a pack is expensive…especially with the cost of shipping. To make my mats I took white card stock, an ink dauber and used the Cherry Cobbler ink pad. After a few minutes of drying time, just to be certain, they ere ready to go. Perfect solution to keep costs lower.
As I was creating this I kept thinking it was too busy, but when done, and I took a step back I love it. It’s actually one of my favorite layouts I’ve made recently…along with my son’s pre-school one (which can be found here).
Thank you all for reading, and I hope you’ll play along. Until next time…Keep Scrapping!
