Before I go any further I want to give a shout out for Cynthia at The Wandering Buckeye. Not only does she make lovely layouts, but some of the most awesome cards that even I can scraplift, and she is by far the best photojournalist of daily life I have ever seen. Without Cynthia I would probably not still be blogging nor would I produce as many scrap pages as I do. Thank you so much blond.
So my last layout today is the Power of Three challenge. I used 3 photos, 3 lines of AC Dear Lizzy (Neapolitan, 5th & Frolic, Lucky Charm), 3 layers of paper on top of my background, 3 basic colors (yellow, pink, green), 3 embellishments (to include 3 loops of twine) in 3 clusters. You know, I can get a little carried away sometimes but I think I met the challenge!
Actually, this could have been an American Crafts page too! Of course, I just own way too much AC and need to use it up so I can buy more!
You may notice there is no journaling on this page - these are GiGi's photos and the layout is for her album. I often create layouts like this and leave the journaling for her to do when she goes back through the album. Sometimes I make a little companion page so that she will have a spot just to write whatever she wants without restriction or worrying about messing up the layout.
Okay, that's it for today. I hope everyone was scrappy today! I'll be back tomorrow with a few more layouts from the challenges at Pretty Paper.True Stories.
