Here's a layout I whipped up using some old Cosmo Cricket from last season. I found these photo that my Dad took of my daughter BEFORE the digital camera days! They are one of a kind, so I wanted to make sure I captured this summer moment.
I used a calendar page for the background and added some layers of Cosmo Cricket. I cut a few tags too from the same line. I really wanted my journalling to pop so I layered it on journalling strips from My Little Yellow Bicycle. The yellow pompoms are courtesy of My Mind's Eye and draw the eye to the foursome of photos. I loved these bright sparkly fonts, two from American Crafts and one from Me and My Big Ideas.
Look at that little sun shaped charm! Two Scrapbook Friends has a bucket of all kinds! The metal is a little piece of genius for any page. I hope you'll pop over to our forum and see for yourself all the great designs and challenges. The gallery is filled with wonderful inspiration too.
I also wanted to share with you a design I made for Challenge Me Tuesday at Practical Scrappers. The challenge is get ALL INKY!! I chose some brand new Bo Bunny from their line Weekend Market. The background is already distressed but I added lots of extra ink and a stamp to a few of the corners. The chipboard "EVERYDAY" is covered in ink as well. All the edges got lots of ink too. I love this photo taken by the incomparable Angela Smith of Waterloo.
I hope you'll pop by the Practical Scrappers Blog today to see some other INKY designs. Next weeks challenge is to use 5+ sided shapes like hexagons, octagons etc! If you play along send your design to email@example.com.
Until next time, keep doing what you love!
