Over at Shimelle's Blog there are 3 days of scrapbooking challenges, giveaways, mini-lessons, special guests and free downloads on 12th, 13th and 14th August.
This is a layout I based on a sketch from Shimelle's Blog - one of the first challenges.
Instead of one 6 x 4 photo, I used two 6 x 4 photos and I eliminated the photo strip at the top of the page and added the title there instead. Also as part of the Explore class I was more aware of matching the colours of the papers to the photos. When I picked out the photos first, the colours that sprang to mind were greens, blues, teals and red. When I looked through my stash I found this kit I had never used - I must have had it for a least 2 or 3 years! The papers are Chatterbox Inc. - Together which I found were ideal for this layout.
