Yes, it’s true! I am not afraid to admit it! I have a National Scrapbooking Day hangover. Seven projects in two days and I am beat! Now, I know many of you are saying, “What’s with her?? I can crank out that many layouts or cards in a day.” You will have to let me in on your secrets of survival, because I think I am just getting too old for that kind of crafting!
The good news is that I have a bunch of fun projects to share with you in the next couple of weeks. As I mentioned on Saturday, my home base for NSD was CropChocolate. If you haven’t been by CC for awhile, you should pop by! They released some exciting news last week about a merger with Oh My Crafts, so there have been many contests and giveaways on top of the challenges.
One of the projects I managed to finish was for the “Wedding Colours” challenge. When I got married, our main colour was purple, and this was a perfect match with some photos I recently had taken of my youngest daughter! I teamed up this challenge with a sketch challenge from Echo Park, and this was the result:
I had so much fun embellishing this layout! From hand stitching on the circles, to a row of pennants, to a Glossy Accents title, and even an embellished straight pin inspired by a Scrapbook and Cards Today Challenge, this layout had me fiddling for many hours (probably too many given the deadlines for the challenges – but so worth it)! Take a look:
But, my favourite part is….you guessed it – an interactive element. Hidden behind the large picture is a hidden journaling tab. Pull up….
Yup – there it is – keep going…
…and the rest of the title, another picture and a spot for journaling is revealed! I think it does justice to my little one’s “cuteness”! What do you think??
