Layout I created for an Earth Day challenge in my Big Picture Class today. I came across some photos of my son discovering a caterpillar in our backyard - seemed just right to celebrate Earth Day. I stamped the background and misted it. Next I cut scraps into banner shapes and figured out how I wanted to lay them out. Photos came next and I matted one to stand out. Then, to finish the layout, I added some journaling cards, a bingo card, some words, butterflies, and a strip of corrugated cardboard.
Note: You may have noticed that I do not scrapbook chronologically. I think this is because I started to scrapbook when my sons were pretty much grown, and it was way too overwhelming to think about going back and making layouts from babyhood on. Instead, I work with photos that catch my attention, and don't worry about the order of the years.
Happy Earth Day!
