This week over at Practical Scrappers we are celebrating the blog's one year anniversary! I feel so fortunate to be part of the Practical Scrappers Design Team and a top-notch challenge blog as well!
We have a whole bunch of fun challenges going on this week in celebration of this big event and hope that you can join us by creating a project and linking it up at the blog! The challenges for this week include creating one or more projects that fall into these categories:
1. Use your number one favorite product.
2. Use just one photograph in your layout.
3. Use the number 1 or word one on your project
4. Use just one embellishment, but as much of it as you'd like (i.e. flowers only)
I used patterned paper from October Afternoon and also created a third pattern by stamping Vintage Cream paper in black ink using a Hero Arts background stamp. I used that "Patterned" paper to create the florishes and the banner as well. Then I inked them all up with Distress Ink to match the other "vintage-look" patterns by October Afternoon.
Although it is difficult to see in this photograph, I added the work "Senior" above the title and wrote a bit of journaling, "Cydney with her bodyguards, May 2010" using a silver gelly roll pen.
Hope you join us for these fun challenges and Happy Anniversary Practical Scrappers!
