As part of my year of INSPIRATION, I am challenging myself to scrap my Top Five (photos or stories or events) from each month. I am currently working on my May layouts and am using INSPIRATION from the Scrapping Everyday Miracles Birthday Mini Crop challenges for these pages.
Challenge #2 was to create a layout using a row or column or diagonal on the Tic-Tac-Toe board provided. I chose the center column which dictated that I use (1) die cut or chipboard, (2) patterned paper, and (3) buttons.
(1) I used my Cricut to die cut letters for my title.
(2) I created a background for my two-page layout using four patterned papers.
(3) I chose buttons as embellishments for the flower centers.
I used eight photos (plus two small circle-punched photos) along with two Project Life journal cards to tell the story of this FUN day!
While I'm sure I would have used patterned paper on this layout anyway (right!), without this challenge I might not have considered adding the button embellishments (which I really like) or taken the time to die cut my title, so I'm really glad I decided to try the challenge because this is such a happy layout! Have you tried any scrapbooking challenges lately?
