Hi everyone! Alex here bringing you this week's challenge.
Most of the time when I scrap a photo, I tend to document a happening, something my kids have said or done, or just the way they are right now. So, when I was making this layout about my daughter's first day at school, I started to write what they did and said and how excited she was, but then I stopped... I threw away the piece of paper with my journaling and started over. I decided to tell her my story, how I was feeling that day. That's my challenge for you this week. Try not to document what happened when a photo you scrap was taken, try to document how it made you feel.
The Daily Flash Milk Money collection is a must have now when the school is starting again. I knew I had to use it. I used my favorite paper from the collection, Reading, as my background. I cut a piece of white cardstock and placed it in-between two of the book shelves. That was going to be my photo area.
I used a lot of Milk Money memory cards on this layout. Some of them to journal on, some of them stuck under my photos. I also used a tin-pin, some double tape stickers, pop-drops and the cutest "here!" pillow puffs sticker.
I love using arrows as embellishments. For this layout I have used chipboard arrows from the To The Point and the Photo Booth sheets. For my title I have mixed three different Daily Flash alphas: Mason Jar, Rhurbarb and Night Owl.
I hope you want to play along! If you do, please post a link here or upload your layout to OA's Flickr Gallery.
Thanks for stopping by today!
