My Man - First LO of the Year!
For Christmas, I was given 52 More Scrapbooking Challenges by Elizabeth Kartchner from my amazing boyfriend, and I absolutely LOVE it! When I first laid eyes on that book, I didn't pay it much attention because I assumed that it wouldn't really be geared towards my style, but after flipping through it a few times during my break at work, I knew it would be useful.
As many of you know, I don't make a lot of scrapbook pages, so I combined a few of the challenges to help me with this layout. I don't want to reveal too much from the book, so as to not spoil it for any one expecting to get it. I'll just say this - I combined black and white with color, made a list, and used some of my old supplies that were collecting dust!
At work tomorrow, I'll be demoing the Cricut and Gypsy once again, and I like to have samples with me to show off how amazing the Cricut can be. I think I'll take this layout with me :) I used the city border on the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge to create the 11" border on the bottom, and then used clear embossing powder to emboss the entire surface.
Of course, no layout is complete without a touch of Tim, so I used Grungeboard elements, and a few of his stamps. The Grungeboard letters and accents were covered in either black or white Enamel Accents from Ranger. Love how they turned out...
I hope you like it! I must say this is my favorite layout so far this year, hehe :)
