Why I Scrap

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. Wow it is Thursday already, where has this week gone! Just a quick post today to show you my layout for the challenge at Once Upon a Sketch. You have to journal about why and when you started to scrap, mine is written on the tag. I used one of the new gorgeous collections from Glitz for this layout. I did lots of sewing and distressing, used more goodies from my stash and a gorgeous stick pin from Angelica’s esty.  I am pretty proud of the journaling here…I usually cant come up with a title let alone journal J




In this close up you can see the large pink flower that I made. There is sewing around the outside and also on the two photo mats. I tucked a DA gate in the flower cluster and some Glitz papers behind the photo.




Here is a close up of the journaling tag that I made, and the gorgeous stick pin. The chippy words are also from DA.



Two more chippy words and you can see the punch work. I added liquid pearls here and there to finish the layout.



Ok well that is it for today.  I will be back tomorrow with my reveal from The Color Room.   Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic week.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
