{ Fun layouts, Project 365 - week 21 }

I have been playing at My Scrapbook Nook. They are having a five week scrap-off. I am happy to say that I have made it to the second round. I wanted to challenge myself to create more layouts and this wonderful place gave me a perfect opportunity.

This first challenge was to use two or more of the same photos. The photo is of our trip to the Bluebonnet Festival in Ennis last month. I don't know if you can tell, but I used Guide Lines II cardstock from Papertrey Ink and Guide Lines Two stamp set. I painted the edges of the ghost butterfly from Heidi Swapp with crackle paint from Ranger. I made a cloud template so you might be seeing these clouds again. I used a house on Stacey's layout for my inspiration here. I have been Stacey's fan for a while and I just love her style. For my house I used 7gypsies large sticker and just added a roof. I used the Flickr program to turn my photos into Polaroids. I discovered that it takes way too long to align everything perfectly on a page. I used to measure and mark with a pencil, snap a photo so I would know where everything goes before I adhered it. This is more fun.

Let me know what you think.

Project 365 - week 21.

5.18 - this is one of only three photos for the day. I guess we were too busy playing outside with water and sand. I love it. 5.19 - we went to the Zoo. Alex loves birds and gets really excited when he sees one. Parrot Paradise is a free-flight, interactive aviary featuring cockatiels and parakeets. We bought a seed stick and the birds come and eat. 5.20 - concentrating and building. 5.21 - playdate at the park. He looks so sad in this photo, but he loves to swing and this was before he dozed off. 5.22 - we went out to eat. It's usually a pleasant experience. 5.23 - he finished his milk in this photo, but he loves to stir. He is using a spoon here, but anything will do. 5.24 - this little pony has been around since his birthday. He can just now get on and move it. He was just showing off here.
