MCT ~ Designer Challenge

Hello! Today starts a new challenge over at My Creative Time! This time the challenge is hosted by the very talented and creative Teri. She has asked the design team to create a scrapbook layout in any size and format of your choice, using a variety of pockets and envelopes.  Easy right!

So I have been wanting to scrap these pictures since last year. My brother in law and future sister in law took my son for the day. They called it Ryan Day! It was all about him. What 8 year all doesn't want a day ALL about him! They went to a local family fun center and did all kind of these. Thank goodness my future SIL knows me, she brought back the score card and pencil! I thought the Stitched Bracket Die made a great little pocket, plus it fit the score card PERFECTLY. Then the Stitched Gift Card Pocket Die fit a journal card. I put both of these at the top of the page so they can be easily pulled out to look at. I must admit, I cut my paper a little too short and thought how am I going to fix this! So I just took a strip of black paper and white embossed sentiments that I thought fit perfectly for this special day and added a few little hearts to fill in the spaces. LOVE how this looks and I might use it more often in the future.

Materials Used:

Paper ~ PTI and DCWV
Ink ~ Archival & Versa Mark
white and clear embossing powder
homemade enamel dots
