Just Add Ink Scrapbook Challenge #1


After my sprint to the finish of 100 layouts in 2011 I was expecting to have a bit of a rest from scrapbooking for a couple of weeks at least.  Then JAI started doing scrapbooking challenges!  The first challenge is to scrap about firsts, so I chose a photo of my eldest son's first Christmas.

The photo is very green,  so I decided to go very neutral for the layout with just a few little splashes of colour.  I chose Sahara Sand and stamped in the same ink to keep it subtle.

The flowers are paper ones I had in my stash from before I was a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  I used a Basics Glimmer Brad for each of the centres.

The title is a combination of a few different rub on packs I had in my stash, also from my pre-demo days.

Stamps: Snow Swirled
Ink: Sahara Sand
DSP/Cardstock: Beau Chateau DSP, Letters To Santa DSP, Sahara Sand
Other: Very Vanilla Velvet Ribbon, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Basics Glimmer Brads, Sponge Dauber, Rub-Ons (non SU) and Paper Flowers (non SU)

Bye for now,
