Guest Designer

Over on the Scrap Addicts Blog I am the last guest designer for this month. There has been a series of layouts posted this month based on the theme of large photos. My 'go to' photo size is the standard 6x4"but I also favour 3x4" for layouts with multiple photos. 
When I do use larger photos I like them to be at a stage in my scrapbook that shows a change in topic or location, almost like a new chapter.
I chose a very large photo 8 x 10 for this layout, with a large image like this all of the decorating can be lined up on one side but to make everything link up I like to overlap onto the photo.
I had the layout all planned in my mind but by the time I finished it I had taken it apart and then put together again three times! It was almost finished and i dropped glue onto the photo, so I had another photo printed and when I stuck it down the torch and arm had been cropped off the image. So third time lucky getting the photo right.
Playing the America theme I painted strip…

Busy, Busy, Busy

I cant believe how long it is since I posted. Ive had so many busy weekends helping friends celebrate big birthdays, along with that I had a brief unplanned stay in hospital. With all this going on time has just flown by.
I went to a workshop in March of this year and while there I spied a piece of the most gorgeous acetate and somehow it jumped into my bag. When I got it home I had no idea how to use it, so it sat around for a while. Then over the National Scrapbooking weekend there was a sketch challenge that made me think of the acetate again. Once I decided the keep the acetate as the main background and then back it with some yellow cardstock it came together quite quickly.
