The Design Team challenge at Let's Scrap at the moment is to scrapbook an every day moment, "old school" style.
So just for fun, I thought I'd show you another one of my early layouts:
We're talking no patterned paper, double- and tripe-matting, punches, eyelets, and computer-generated journalling!
Now, here's the page I made this week:
It took me a little while to decide what colours to use with my
photo, until I remembered this lovely Easter-inspired mood board from Jay Gee's Nook:
It won't be a surprise to my regular readers that I added an extra spin on this challenge by not only going old-school style, but literally using old school supplies. To say that nothing on this page is less than 4 years old would in most cases be an understatement!
I tried to go for the no patterned paper, but I just couldn't do it! I did use punches, eyelets and (sort-of )
triple matting though. One of the challenge rules stipulated no electronics, so I couldn't use the computer (or, sigh, the Silhouette), so I dug out some old stickers, letter tiles and stamps.
Now, to the other part of the challenge, the everyday photo.
This was one of those rare times that I took a photo just because I scrapbook, documenting what I was doing at 11am on the 11th of the 11th, 2011. An everyday event (or it should be, sorry Hamish!) made special by occurring at a unique time in history.
