One of the most popular words in scrapping right now is "documented." It is as scrapper what we are doing, documenting our lives and the lives of those who came before us in my case with the heritage photos I have! Instead of buying just a photo album for my son I am documenting his life with his photos through my eyes, and giving the ongoing album(s) to him. On occasion I put in one of the photos I've taken. I was thrilled to participate in the Moore, OK Benefit Crop! The one challenge which was an absolute must do was the Layering Challenge by Kimmie Robinson. Most of the products on the page came from the Paper Bakery Kits March 2013 Scrapbooking Kit.
I drew my inspiration for my first layer from one of the Design Team Members at Split Coast Stampers over lunch when we took three classes together at Crop Paper Scissors in Waco. And I'm terribly sorry I don't remember her name. Her comment was, 'Since your analytically inclined why not use numbers on your layout.' Took me 10 months to do so. This is a photo of one of my son's best friends and a young man who is like a second son to me.
I loved this layout when I was done! And I'm hooked.....just haven't done another layering layout since I did this one! But I will! It's a great way to use up the scraps.
Until next time!
