Enikö DeLilse one of our new Design Team Members over at Let’s Scrap
gave us a layout challenge to do ausing the 5 W’s (who, what, when, where and why) in our journaling. I have been wanting to scrap these photos of my Mom, Grandfather and Aunts and Uncle so thought they would work great for her challenge. Here is my layout using one of Let’s Scrap sketches.
Here is a close up of the first page
On this page I used a music embossing folder in the upper left corner and then sanded it so that the white core would show through. The little Family Times tag is a Bo Bunny sticker and the circle typewriter letters are from Graphic 45. I used a Martha Stewart border punch to make the burgundy colored borders. Then using a tutorial that Val Thorpe another one of our Let’s Scrap DT’s showed us the other day I took the same punch and punched on both sides of a thin piece of cream colored cardstock. I have tried doing this before but with little success but with the help of Val’s tutorial it was easy. As I had a lot more information about the Fife
and Drum Band and no room to share it on the layout I made the large photo so that it could flip up and put the rest of the journaling in there. If you click on the photo of the journaling it will make it larger so that you can read what it says.
Here is a close up of the second page
The two photos on the upper left of the second page may look a little strange because theykind of cut some of the people out. Several years ago my Aunt Phyllis gave me these two photos. The group was so large it was hard to see the people very well so she did a close up of the sections that showed my Mom, Grandpa, Uncle Joe and herself in them.
If you haven’t checked out Enikö’s Challenge or Val’s Tutorial you should, they are both fantastic and a lot of fun. You can find them both in the Let’s Scrap Forum.
