Wow has the last week been crazy! It's been a little while since my last blog post but I really needed the last week to just take a creative break and get some rest. This weekend I was in Fargo watching my youngest brother, who is a junior in high school, wrestle in the state tournament. Without going into too much detail, I'll just let you know that he placed 7th and he did extremely well in their team dual. I'm going to try to get around to scrapping some of the pictures from this weekend and then I'll go into a little more detail. This is a scrapbooking blog so I try to stick to that topic. So anyways, what have I been up to? Take a look!
Here is a layout I created using a sketch I received from Creating Keepsakes. I used a bunch of photos I used from a trip Bella and I took up to see Josh in Williston.
The size of the pictures are 2x4 inches. Target has done some updating of their Photo Lab and now it's even easier to make mini prints. I don't think I will print off many 4x6's anymore. Anyways, I used a snowflake paper for the boarder and blue ribbon to help separate the pictures a little bit. I really like the little birdie sticker in the corner!
Here is a close up of the ribbon I used to boarder my journaling block. This was a new technique for me that I was really excited to try. I typed up my journaling and printed it out on vellum. The only part that I still find tricky is using an adhesive that won't show through the vellum. On this layout I used a special vellum tape runner but you can still see through it a little.
I think this is one of my favorite layouts because it really speaks to Bella's spirit! Well, keep on eye out for some more posts on what I've been up to. Until then, Happy Scrappin'! SB
