Ta-dah, here is the layout in its entirety! What do you think? The photo was taken at Femsport before the first event, and I was really super nervous, but I'm glad I remembered to take this shot. It goes so great with the patterned papers from the Scrap-tures April kit. Just about everything on this layout is from the kit, although I did add the Thickers, crocheted trim, and little star bead from my stash. This month's add-ons to the kit were a beautiful acrylic stamp set from My Mind's Eye, and some Ranger Perfect Pearls (in white), mini mister, and brush, so I used those along with some Ranger Perfect Medium ink (much like Versamark) to make my own PP on the yellow Bazzill cardstock. Don't you love the shine? All of the patterned paper is from the new MME Stella and Rose line, and I really loved both sides of the ledger paper, so I cut a chunk from behind my photo to save for later. Every month's kit comes with an exclusive sketch from Kristine Davidson of Creative Scrapper's fame, so I used the sketch for this layout but flipped it around to suit my photo. Then all I had to do was add some journaling and a couple of accent pieces (some gorgeous brads, a date sticker, and a chipboard piece, all from the Stella and Rose line) and it was a done deal. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out, so I hope you like it too. Starting tonight at 8 p.m. I believe, Scrap-tures is having their Retro Road Trip Crop. It's an online crop, and there'll be all sorts of challenges suited to get those old, old photos scrapped. I hope you'll join us in the forum - it is free and open to everyone (meaning you don't have to be a kit club subscriber to join and play along). This might be my last chance to scrap for a while, because the move day is fast approaching and my stuff is getting packed, aaaahhhh! I'll feel like I have a piece of me amputated without my scrap stuff!!!
