I’m was on a role this month with finding challenges that help me get these 8×10 photos done. When I saw the sketch from Scrap Much? by Laura Whitaker I knew it would be the perfect 2nd page to my previous 9 month boy layout.
9 Month Baby Boy Layout
For the first year of our sons life I took him to the portrait studio once a month and had some 8×10’s taken since they were only 2.99 a sheet. I love having the large photo showing all his growing features and we staged each photo to show some of what he was doing that month. The only problem I have is scrapping that one big photo. When I saw the inspired by challenge at Sketch~N~Scrap this month using one large photo I had to jump on it to get some of my photos done.
During this month we had gone to my Uncle’s cabin and road four wheelers. I used some cork paper by Studio Calico and some camo paper I’ve had in my stash for about 3 years. If I had to guess the camo paper was from The Paper Studio. All the embellishments except the wood circles I believe are Studio Calico as well. Was so happy to get this photo scrapped and was happy with the way it came out.
Do you have a size photo that you find challenging to get done? Until next time….Keep Scrapping!
Child’s Play Challenge – Flintstones
Child’s Play Challenge Reveal
Hi Everyone, and welcome to my first DT reveal for Child’s Play Challenges. I loved participating here, and am honored to have been chosen to be on the team.
My first assignment was Colorforms. I don’t remember having these as a child so I had to go another direction.
The original toy was just shapes in red and blue. Since we are revealing two days before Fourth of July I went that direction and then used blocks of paper to mimic the squares in the toy after I saw this awesome sketch from Creative Scrappers. I left the photo and journalling spot blank because my Dad’s birthday is Fourth of July so this page is all ready for a photo of him and our little man, and some journalling of what we did that day.
All the papers are from Doodlebug Designs. The stars are modeling paste mixed with pearl medium and then topped with crystal glitter…it gives a really nice depth to the page.
I hope to see you enter our challenges – they are so fun. Until next time…Keep scrappin!
Studio Calcio You and Me Layout
I have really been challenging myself to use my Studio Calico kits, even though they haven’t been my normal style. This was the Camelot kit from I believe June. Except for the names I ended up really loving how this came out. I loved up right up until I added my handwriting…anyone else have that problem?
Since I was outside my comfort zone I went searching all over for inspiration and man did I find it. Sketch #75 over at Let’s Capture Our Memories was my main starting point. Laura Whitaker really hit it out of the park for me on this one. I loved how simple it was and the doily…was just calling my name. I took a plain white doily and misted it with Tattered Angels spray.
I was also inspired by the Challenge Yourself blog idea of having yourself in the photo with one of the men in your life. I am rarely in our pictures so I love the idea of this blog.
I also want to enter this into Crafty Girl’s Challenge – Anything goes. I appreciate finding new places to show off my creations.
So what have you been working on? Until next time – keep scrappin!
