Back To Scrappin'

Happy Thursday all! Well, I've been doing swaps and other various things here lately and have really been missing just scrapping for me. I also miss doin the various challenges I like to participate in, so I decided to get back to that today. I love the swaps, but it's nice to get back to scrappin' layouts and stuff. I just finished up this layout for a challenge on Just Scrappin'. This challenge was to make the paper work for you. You were supposed to take a sheet of paper and use things on it as embellishment on a layout. So I chose 2 sheets of paper. The first 2 pix are sample of the paper that I cut to make my embellishment for my layout. This layout is called "Give Thanks." Of course, it's of my cute little nephew, Carter. I cut out the pumpkin/corn embellishment and decorative strip of marquee looking stuff for the embellishment. I mounted the photo on a piece of paper that I tore out of an old dictionary and then distressed the edges. I really love that look. It almost looks like the paper has been burnt or something. I also distressed around my paper embellishents and around the outside of the layout. I used my edge distressor on the outside of the layout to distress it up really good. I love that old, torn look. I also added a some flowers. Inside the flower, I added a metal pumpkin charm. I cut out the journaling block with my cuttlebug. I also recycled my title to from a sheet of paper too. So here she is. Thanks for looking! God bless!

Pin It!

Hey Girl,

I LOVE this old, distressed look. Also, you really did make that paper work for you. It all flows together so well!!! Your attention to detail keeps on amazing me. You are also correct, that little nephew is the cutest little thing.
