Better Living Through Scrapbooking November Challenge 2

At Better Living Through Scrapbooking, “The Greatest of These is Charity” is the challenge for this week.  One way to make your life better is through scrapbooking, another way is to do something nice for someone else. Scrap about something you do or have done for someone else. A loved one, a neighbor, a charity, etc. and then choose 2 of the following additions to add to your layout:

1. Print an element of your page (NOT a photo) using your home or office printer. This can be your title, your journaling, an embellishment, or anything else you can use on your page, but not a photo!
2. Use three brads somewhere on your page.
3. Use a chipboard letter or shape on your page.
4. Use the following quote somewhere on your page or in your journaling: “If you haven’t got any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble. — Bob Hope”

For this "Charity" layout I decided to scrap about our Raccoon Rehab facility. The photographs are from the first two orphaned litters we rescued this past spring through summer. For the additions to the challenge I also printed the journal block from our home printer, I used more than three brads on the page, and I used chipboard on the title.

I absolutely love Discount Cardstock's 12 x 12 Primary Red Vellum. It went perfectly with the Cosmo Cricut patterned paper and I love that it lets the patterned paper "peek-a-boo" through it.

The close-up shot of the layout below not only gives you a chance to see the beautiful bird button from our sponsor Charlene's Button Box, it also gives you a closer look at Bella (one of our rehabbed raccoons who broke her leg shortly after release and had to be rehabbed again unti she recovered) laying on a banana peel (one of her favorite treats was bananas).  Bella has since recovered and been returned to the wild.

And here is a close-up of the printed journal block. I highlighted the top and bottom of the block with a stamp from the Vintage Labels stamp set by Papertrey Ink.
