Just sharing the latest layout I created.
I felt like scrapping last night so I pulled out the list I made for myself of all the challenges I would like to participate in and decided to create a layout for the latest challenge over at Use It Tuesday.
"Use it Tuesday" is a blog that I discovered a couple of months ago.
Just like other challenge blogs "Use It Tuesday" presents different types of challenges to participate in. What makes them different is that they require that you use hoarded supplies on your creations.
As you know, that's what I have been trying to do: use up my stash.
So imagine how excited I was to find this blog!
I created a layout for Challenge #48:"Warm it Up: Use Red, Orange, and/or Yellow"
Please make a project that uses at least one of these color
I had originally planned on using ALL 3 colors on my layout but when I came across the pics of my son opening one of his gifts this past Christmas, I decided I wanted to scrap them. Obviously the 3 color combo wouldn't work w/ these pics or the theme, so I went w/ using just the color red as a way to satisfy the challenge requirement.
Here is the layout:
Journaling: "David and I don't believe in young children having cell phones. Because of this, Joseph didn't get a phone until Christmas 2012; 6 mos before his 18th Birthday"
I chose the title "Finally" because I'm sure that's what my son was thinking when he opened his present. He's been wanting a cell phone so badly but as my journaling states, we don't believe in kids having cell phones. Joseph will be an adult in 6 months (Yikes!) so we decided it was okay for him to have one now.
As you can see I went a little crazy w/ my layering and doodling, LOL!
But I'm okay w/ that because it was fun and that's what scrapbooking is supposed to be: FUN!
And I used up so much old stuff on here!
The snowflake rub-ons, journaling tag, word strips, title letters, scalloped mat (behind the title and tag) are all from a Scrapbook kit I bought in December of 2010.
The papers I used aren't from that kit but are just as old (maybe even older!).
Gosh even the buttons are a couple of years old!
After I was done w/ the layout I realized I had used yellow and orange:
yellow = word strips and title letters
orange = snowflake (on the top circle)
So without even trying I wound up using ALL 3 colors like I had wanted to...
Yay me! LOL!
