Scrapbooking With Inspiration (SBVC04)

This is a layout that was inspired by a magazine layout! We had lots of options for this Variety Challenge. There was the fabric softener ad, the Nokia ad, an appliance ad (I think), and this layout which I call 'Princess'. This page loosely follows the Princess layout and uses non-traditional colors for a Christmas page. The base paper is from My Mind's Eye Magnolia Collection. The polka dot pieces are from the same collection. The card stock is Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White for matting. The journaling was done with a Signo white gel pen. The embellishments were taken from last year's Christmas gift tags!! That's called recycling!!! As it says, even the dogs got into the act!!! The top one is our poodle, Molly, and bottom is our mutt, Minnie Mutt. Of course, Alicia is on the left and Eddie is on the right, both trimming the tree!

The magazine scrapbooking page is shown at the right. This layout is really meant for a girl. Mine is meant for Christmas! The layout from the magazine uses some designer paper with large circles on it. Mine has smaller polka dots. My photos don't overlap and my titles, etc. are handwritten with white gel pen. It was really a fun sketch to work on! My layout is 'inspired' by the layout at the right and only loosely follows that sketch.
