October SSIB Reveal – Football and Pocket Page Layouts
Chid’s Play Challenge – Cat In The Hat
Welcome to another fun reveal for Child’s Play Challenge. We were asked this time to create layouts with the book Cat In The Hat as inspiration.
We don’t read a lot of Dr. Suess around here for some reason so it took me a while to find my inspiration. It was only after I realized the my nephew A’s favorite movie was The Lorax that it came together for me. After that this layout only took about an hour to complete.
I used the Hey Baby collection by Simple Stories for all the paper since they matched A’s shirt so well, but kept the look soft.
The layout of the photo and embellishments was inspired by one of Stacia Brandt’s Queen & Co guest layouts. She used circles, but otherwise the placement is very similar.
I love how this came out and I placed it in a memory tray for my SIL to hang in her office. I hope she love it too. Come over and join our challenge with how this theme inspires you. Until next…Keep Scrapping!
Scrapstuffz April Sands of Time Reveal
Scrapstuffz is teaming with Child’s Play Challenge this month, and we’re doing a sketch (by Laura Whitaker) and a picture challenge.
It took me a really long time to get my mojo on the sand art picture from Child’s Play Challenge. I thought of beach right away, but just finished our beach pictures last month. Then I thought about doing just the colors, but I really wanted more than that. As I thought and thought on it I kept coming back to the sand of time as a page theme. It finally hit me to do something of my hubby and I now (11 years later) than all the old pictures I tend to work on. We’ve stuck together through the sands of time.
I also used the sand thought to create layers like the different color sands. Each paper layer is on pop dots so there is a lot of height to the layout.
I also used my favorite color (green) on this layout in order to enter Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog. Not only did it meet the challenge, but since the picture was taken outside green worked in that regard as well.
I’m also still undecided on if I need a title or if I’ll leave it as is. Thoughts on that?
I hope you’ll join us. Since it’s a collaborative month one layout gets you an entry to both challenges!
