Scrappin Studio Weekly Challenge

The weekly challenge at Scrappin Studio is to create an 8.5"x11" LO. I decided to use this sketch from PageMaps (one from January 2011). I turned it on it's side and did a bit of a jiggle with the title and journalling! (as you do!) Also left off the circle and the dots as I felt the embossed cardstock didn't need any bling.

I've used a piece of embossed cardstock (Jenni Bowlin I think) which I sanded, along with rick rack, bracket stamp and brad from my stash. Patterned papers and alphas are from the Studio Calico March kit (using up the scraps!) :-)

Used Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die for the flower.
Cardstock is really lovely (forgot I actually had it in my stash!) :-)

Fun challenge ... but I am going to confess that I will adhere this LO to a 12x12 piece of cardstock to put into my holiday album! I am not going to decorate the 12x12 ... it's just going to have this LO stuck on it (nearer the top, not in the middle). Otherwise I have to purchase 8.5x11" page protectors or fiddle about adapting a 12x12, so I am going to take the easy option! :-)
Thanks for visiting.

Oohhh what a great idea to flip the sketch! The embossed cardstock is so pretty! I have to agree with u about the size. I dont scrap this size too but i kinda just give it a shot. Thanks for playing along at Scrappin Studio. :))

What a nice layout you did Rachel and it is so nice to read about your kids. They all grown up fast!

Take care.
