I am totally motivated to scrap right now and have actually embarked on a daily layout challenge with my LOAD friend Whimsical Nature. We called our challenge Whimsical Musings which I love as it brings the two of us together and we are using some prompts from a Lain class over at Scrap Happy.
It's not that I'm enjoying it more than LOAD, it's just that it's less pressure. One of the things I love the most about LOAD is the gallery, the comments and the message board but to be honest, that is also one of the most stressful things about LOAD! It's just too much of a good thing sometimes. I'll be doing whatever LOAD I can in the future but this month, we are a little private group of 2! It's a lot of fun and we are motivating and inspiring each other every day.
My first Ingonish Beach layout is based on a calendar event and I will use it as an example in the prompt for our informal Scrap Happy LOAD later in the year.
My journalling is tucked into the kraft envelope and I really went to town with the banners. I can't get enough of them at the moment and have to stop myself using them on every layout!
I completed the second kit layout this weekend and it was all about the grouping of embellishments. I mixed in a whole load of items from all sorts of places and was thrilled with the result. For once, it's a layout with some cardstock showing and I managed to fit in two 5x7 inch photos which can be hard sometimes. I messed up the journalling but that's ok! I added the fuller story on the back.
I love this story and have been meaning to get it down since it happened. So glad that it's done.
What stories are on your list to scrap?
