Too late...

Patty came over today and I was able to work on three more challenges... but of course the submission dates were already over.   Better luck next time :(

Question: how do you photograph your layouts to post online?  Everyone else always has perfect pics with nothing else around!  What am I doing wrong??

Summer Break=Scrapbooking

Yeah for summer break!  I finally have time to scrapbook and am having a great time.  I am working on challenges and relaxing after a long school year.

Challenge one: Use Three Pattern papers and rub-ons to complete a layout from Scrap Our Stash  I really had to dig deep into my stash to find some rub on as I am not a fan.  I used them on photos this time; I have NEVER done this before; but like how it looks.  The pattern paper was the easy part as I LOVE pattern paper.

Pictures are from our vacation to Michigan last summer
Challenge two: Took more time as I researched song lyrics to do something different.  I also was able to use this same layout for another challenge asking us to use two different alphabets.  (I have never done this as well.  I don't mix things up well.)  This sketch is also from the IASST challenge.

Scrap It with a Song  I used lyrics from  Mr. Blue Sky by Electric Light Orchestra  in my title
Scrap Your Story  I used 2 different alphabets.  I stamped some words but put the most important work in red stickers.

This is it for tonight... I am looking forward to a rewarding summer and catching up with my projects.
