I had so much fun at the Crop-A-Ganza! Oh my word! And I actually got a lot accomplished too! That hardly ever happens - LOL! Anyhoo, before I share my projects from the crop, I want to tell you about this week's Scrapping The Music song. The song is "If Today Was Your Last Day" by Nickelback - and I found it to be a very inspiring song to scrap with! Here's what I came up with...
The lyric I chose for this layout is "My best friend gave me the best advice. He said each day's a gift and not a given right. Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind; and try to take the road less traveled by." I love that!
I used the June Studio Calico kit, plus grungeboard wings, acrylic paint, glimmer mist, black ink, fancy pants corner stamp, Jenni Bowlin black star vintage paper, turquoise duct tape, and black and white journaling stamps.
So - on to the Crop-A-Ganza projects. First up is a layout for the current "Scrap The Boys" challenge. The challenge is to title your layout "Real Men ______." I thought it was perfect for this picture of Michael and his dad on father's day this year. I used the June Studio Calico kit, and here's what I came up with...The mat behind the photo is actually the inside cover paper from an antique book. It was in a big box of free vintage papers and ephemera at SiSversary. It's fun to be able to use it right away!
Next up is the 4 x 4 Mini-album from the class that Jenni Bowlin taught at SiSversary. I used it for some of my pics from SiSversary. I bought a few extra papers and embellies to customize it for my style a little bit - but most of what I used was included in the class kit. Remember you can click on the images to see the details better...
I started another layout (for the Lotus Paperie challenge), but it's not finished yet.
I hope you had a lovely weekend! I will be back tomorrow with a Project 365 update! Thanks for stopping by and for your comments - they really mean a lot to me!
