A Speed Scrap and 2 My Story Matters LOs

My mom left yesterday and I’m back to my usual routine. We all really enjoyed her stay very much and we’re sad she left.. 🙁

I have some pages to show from these past few days.
This page I did for the daily Speed Scrap on Monday and I love how it turned out. These were the instructions:

  1. Go to your favorites folder and find a layout to scraplift. It doesn’t have to be an absolute scraplift, though. You could be inspired by photo placement, photo subject matter, element placement, color scheme, title work, etc. Don’t forget which layout you’ve chosen because I’ll want you to link us up in your credits so the rest of us can see what inspired you.
  2. Picture time!! You have to use a picture (or pictures) that you have taken this month. The month of June. The year 2009. 🙂
  3. Use at least 3 papers.
  4. Since this isn’t supposed to be an exact match scraplift, I can be a little bossy about embellishments, right? Put in some ribbon, some string, and some button(s).
  5. For your title, use an alpha only. NO fonts in the title.
  6. Journaling – be creative. Put your text on a path, on little strips, around the border of your page, etc.
  7. Creativity again – Date your LO, but no boring dates just typed on the page in Century Gothic (what I do almost all the time lol). Add shadows and any other finishing touches.

I lifted a page by Denise, and actually used her template based on that page! 😉
