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 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!
