Scrapping Recipe Challenge #31

This is my layout for Scrapping Recipe Challenge #31 at Sketches! {by Tamara}. Be sure to check out what the other design team members created.


This week, the recipe consisted of using the following on our card or layout:

  • Use 3 strips of paper
  • Distressed edges (torn is OK if you don't have a distresser)
  • A tag

My papers are Love, Elsie Roxie. I distressed the edges of my photo mats, and then I inked the edges. The tag is a date tag that is tied to my flower stack. I used foam Thickers for the title. The journaling in the bottom right corner is on a Roxie sticker. The flowers are Primas. Isn't that red and white checked flower fantastic? The flower stack center is a Roxie chipboard button. I love the way this page turned out. I love the negative space around the title. You can click on the layout to see it larger.

Well, I just got in from clearing the driveway. This is the first time I used the snow blower all by myself. I didn't know how to start it, but my husband showed me how on Sunday. Let me tell you . . . using the snow blower sure beats shoveling!! We have some brutal temperatures forecasted. I just hope they don't last too long. I hope you have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful page Carol!!! I thought I would let you know the secret to getting a fast pass on your scrapbook page - just don't use it. I grabbed a couple on my last day so I would have them.

Cool layout Carol, love the bright funky papers, they are some of my favourites.

It sounds like you are having a really cold snap at the moment, we went down to -10 degrees last week and that was pretty cold for us!
