This is my first project as a guest DT for the Heart 2 Heart Challenge!!! I was so shocked and honored to be asked, I couldn't be more excited!!! The work that I've seen posted by both the DT and the challenge participants has been amazing. Plus, to make it even better, the challenge this week is to complete a scrapbook page!
I have fun making cards, but, mostly because they give you some immediate satisfaction. The real reason I got into all this paper crafting and scrapping craziness was for the scrapbook pages...I love that they give you the opportunity to document more than just the date of the photos. It's so important to me to remember the little things about each photo and in the case of Owen's book, sneak in the things that the pictures don't show like what funny things he says now that I might forget in the years to come!
The layout for this page came from the Got Sketch? 105 online class I took, so I can't show the actual sketch. But, I thought it was a lot of fun. I love the Boom-Di-Ada paper for these Hawaii pictures, it's the perfect color combination. I also used my one and only creative idea (if you can call it that!) to punch one of my Martha Stewart corner punches all down both sides of a strip of paper to create this fun border! I like that I'm able to create something a little bit different than what you see on everyone else's work. It's fun to just use the regular border punch on both sides of the paper too!
Hope you all have a great week. We're up to just over 19 hours of official daylight here (it never really gets dark though right now), summer is officially in full swing and we are having some amazing weather to go with it!!!
