Some More Scrapbooking

Hi!

Did you know that May is Scrapbooking Month? Maybe that's why I'm in a scrappin' mood lately! Today's layout is inspired by Stamp A Memory's latest challenge: to use a not so perfect photo.

I chose these photos of a recent family holiday. My brother in law works at a flour mill and often has to drive a massive tractor to load the train with flour. On the last night of our holiday we took the children up to the mill for a ride in the tractor. They thought it was the best part of the holiday!



The photos aren't great - they were taken at night, are a bit grainy or blurry, the light on the tractor is glaring and the kids have red eye in them. But they tell a story, and that to me is the whole point of scrapbooking. Otherwise they're just a whole bunch of photos slapped into an album.

Here's a close up of the punch art tractor:



Stamps: Classic Stars Jumbo Stampin' Around Wheel
Ink: Versamark, Black Stampin' Write Journaler
DSP/Card Stock: Chocolate Chip Patterns DSP, Garden Green 12x12, Whisper White, Basic Black, Creamy Caramel
Other: LOTS of punches, Big Shot, Timeless Type Junior Alphabet Die, Chocolate Chip 1" Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon

I hope you can get some scrapbooking done this month to celebrate Scrapbooking Month.

Catch you later,

Tina
