Regular readers may remember this post in which I mentioned a new challenge site (Scrap Wrecks) that has been started by the lovely Sharon. Well the first challenge is up! And if you are feeling brave you should enter a LO that fits this month's criteria (barnacles LOL - see the site for more details). You could win yourself a beautiful RAK from Rochelle. Here is my entry and a little about the LO.
It's a doozy isn't it?!
This was one of the first “non-CM” Layouts I ever did. It’s from circa September 2004. At the time I can remember being completely in love with this LO. I spent hours choosing all the materials and pouring over the placement of all the elements. Pith I didn’t think to buy more than one piece of the PP. So I had to be “creative with the background LOL. Let me tell you what I find hilarious about this LO now:
- First, the photos – Just bath photos. No particular event LOL Some from the first hospital bath, others from random bath times :)
- Second, the pearl beads – I thought I was being very clever and creative at the time, they look like bubbles right? But how to attach them to a page in the days where I was using only photo splits?
- Thirdly, the fact that every photo needed to have the corners rounded or cropped into ovals (BY HAND!!!)
- Lastly, the overload of stickers and rubons. (Love those little Jolee 3Ds) I’m pretty sure I agonised over where to put every single sticker and rub-on out of the packet. Like that’s the point – Use everything in one go!
