The Best Day for Family & The Boys We Adore (The ScrapRoom)

Did you know that The ScrapRoom not only has a blog but that they also have a Facebook Group?  It is a great group of ladies that love sharing their work and a place to chat.  They also have challenges each and every month to play along with.

This first layout is for the Freaky Fast Friday (FFF) challenge.  The challenge starts with a list of sizes to cut your patterned paper.  You then grab some pictures and just move the layers around until you love it.  From there you add your embellishments, title, etc.  And of course share it with the group.  It always amazes me how the same measurements will look so different depending on who is putting them together!

On this layout I grabbed a piece of black cardstock from my stash for the base of my layout.  I then used the two pieces of On Trend 2 patterned paper by My Mind's Eye that comes in the Patterned Paper Add-On Kit for May to create this page.  I mixed in a 3x4 card from the May/June Project Life kit along with the enamel dots.  The gold heart and flowers among other embellishments were all fussy cut from various cards in both the Patterned Paper Add-On Kits and the Project Life Kit.  The letters in the title are from my stash.

I struggled with the FFF challenge for quite a while.  I even at one point changed out my photos get the the design to work better with my paper arrangement.  But in the end this is a layout that I now adore!

 This layout isn't for any challenges.  I just loved the Attwell paper from Fancy Pants Designs that came in the Patterned Paper Add-On Kit and I knew it would the perfect masculine color and patterns to go with this photograph.  Everything on this page (except the grey cardstock) is all Fancy Pants Designs that come in the Patterned Paper Add-On Kit for May and the Project Life Kit for May/June.

I started with the 12x12 piece of wood grain paper and decided to layer on this grey cardstock from my stash.  Since I also wanted to use some of the other side of the wood grain paper, I cut out the middle section that would then be covered up with the cardstock.  This is a great way to get more use from your paper!  I then layered on pieces of the other sheet (both sides).  Right under and on top of the photo I added various Attwell sticky notes.  I finished off the page witht he title, wood heart and sequins that all came from my stash.  These sticky notes, that are a part of the Project Life kit for May/June includes so many sticky notes that I know they will be on many projects to come!
