Each of signed up to create a layout with a certain number of photos. My assignment was to use 3 photos in a layout. It’s not very hard for me to use a few photos since I have 5 kids. I have LOTS of photos to use.
The papers and embellishment stickers were all from Basic Grey.
To help my alphas and the cog sticker stand out a little more against that busy background paper I used a dark brown pen and outlined them all. I wish I had take an before and after picture of the outlining. It really does make a difference!
And because I've been able to get a little scrapping done, I have a second layout to share. I used Echo Park’s “Note To Self” paper for this LO. I inked around just about everything with Tim Holtz distress ink, I felt it was fitting for a dirt layout. The yellow twine is from The Twinery and the brads are from Recollections and SEI
