7 Pieces of Patter Paper - OH MY!

Well the NZ Dare Blog is at it again! This time the challenge is to use 7 pieces of pattern paper on one layout. When I read that, I thought "oh that shouldn't be too difficult". But I was wrong. Way wrong! I couldn't get my head around how to even get started. I knew the pictures I wanted to use so I hunted for the papers. I initially took a piece of white card and started to cover it with blocks of patterned paper lol. What a dork! I just couldn't figure out how to do this. So I finally decided on strips. I decided to show the white card (something I don't think I've ever done) and also thought I would dig out my deco scissors. Also I grabbed my Making Memories ledger paper and had Kamryn write her name. (She's getting very good at this and fast!) And this is the end result. One I am quite happy with and even happier that it these pictures were HUGELY important to me and I'm glad they are scrapped!

Love that layout Christi. How cool to get Kamryn to write her name. I started on this last week and then out it in plastic bag to look at again! Better get a into G hadn't I. I love how you used the strips of pattern paper. It looks good with a white background....

LOVE LOVE LOVE it, Christi! I really like the white background, are you hooked now?? I think it looks great, you'll have to do some more layouts with white on them :-)

I need to scrap Ethan's Kindy photos too and I think I'll get him to write his name too, since that is where they are learning how to do it so well!
