My Creative Time ~ "Scrappy Monday" Challenge

Happy Monday! It is time for "Scrappy Monday" Challenge over at My Creative Time! I really am excited Emma started this challenge! It helps the design team, myself and hopefully YOU to get caught up on our scrapbooks! So this challenge is for layouts ONLY! For this challenge Emma asked us to follow a sketch and incorporate some sort of fiber on our layout! For example: jute, twine, hemp, burlap etc! You have until Sunday, June 24th to add your layout to the challenge! Sounds like fun to me!

I usually like to scrap in chronological order but at times I will scrap something more recent. Well these pictures today are of my son when he was barely a month old! YIKES! He is going to be 7 this year! But again ~ I get to look back, remember fond memories and root through my boxes of pictures. I like to use 12 x 12 pages for my layouts. The white paper in the back is sort of like canvas paper ~ VERY thick paper! LOVE it! I also decided to use some embellishments I had from way back! I think they mix well with Emma's stamps and dies!  All my hemp and burlap is from my fellow design team sister ~ Liz from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.
