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!
When I saw the new sketch over at Sketch~N~Scrap, and the Old Is New challenge at A Cherry On Top I knew right away what products I was going to use, and even what pictures. I think this was one of the fastest layouts I’ve ever done.
I used the Simple Stories Sn@p Him collection, and my first cut from my new Silhouette. I don’t do pocket scrapbooking, but have several card collections to use for layouts like this. The chevron down the side is modeling paste mixed with some acrylic paint and put through a Tim Holtz stencil. I need some practice on this technique, but I really love how it comes out, and the depth it gives my layout!
I’ll be back soon with more new layouts. Until then – keep scrapping!

I had some fun pictures of our son playing at the beach…well as much playing as a nine month old does, but I was stuck on how to use them. I then came across the Child’s Play Monopoly challenge, and the arrow on the go tile of the board hit me. I was going to use arrows since in the pictures he’s upside down and sideways!
I also wanted to use the new Inspired By challenge over at Sketch ~ N ~ Scrap. It was an awesome sketch!
