I participated in some Studio Calico CHA challenges over on their message board this past week. I've been trying to expand my scrapbooking repertoire and challenges are a great way of doing that.
Another great way to do that is to find inspiration. For this layout I found some inspiration in this piece from this layout on Pinterest. I loved the way that Waleska used the numbers to write her journaling and used that as my jumping off point for this layout.
So, in this layout I had two challenges:
1. use circular elements-circle pic+ polka dots+ buttons (CHA challenges)
2. number my journaling
This is what I came up with.
I stamped my journaling on a few pieces of washi tape, anchored with pattern paper. I included tons of buttons and brads, both intermingled with the pictures and also at the button as a larger embellishment. I also tried to mimic the 'circle' element with my title as well. This layout might use circular elements but it's also very linear-which I like!
My subject is hysterical. These pics were taken one evening when I dropped into Allison and Paul's to drop off some cookies. Liam was trying a sippy cup for the first time and his face was hilarious. The pure confusion really made me believe that he was having a conversation with us-if only in his head. It was too funny and deserved to be recorded!
I miss my sweet little boy. I can't wait to see him in April!
