I made it to a Speed Scrap!

Woo Hoo! I hadn't been able to attend a SS in quite a while, but I made it tonight. Tracy of Growing Pains Scrapped was our host. These were the instructions:

Step 1. Open up 4 papers – 1 solid and 3 B&T (patterened...background/texture...)

Step 2. Your solid paper is your background. Cut 1 paterned into a long rectangle, 1 into a short rectangle and 1 into a medium squar-ish shape (like a 7 x 5)

Step 3. Find 1 picture and a frame – frame your picture

Step 4. Attach frame with a fastener of some sort and a tag. Put a date on your tag.

Step 5. Add a ribbon and a few flowers and 1 other (non flower) element and make a small cluster. Use a buckle or other type of fastener on your ribbon

Step 6. Title with a 2 word title

Step 7. Add at least 3 lines of journaling, drop shadows and finishing touches

Here is my layout:



That's my husband, have I ever shown him to you before? I took that picture during our trip and I love it! I'm sure you'll see it in other layouts, it is my new favorite of him. He usually has a really annoyed look on his face when I take his picture, lol!

I used a little bit of a lot of kits by Gypsy Couture. I used the following: Boho Baby (Kit and Extras), Sweet Pea, Way Out Wild and Secret Places and Sweet Imagination.

Hi Eva, you did a great job on your layout! You always do. I wanted to join the SS tonight, but my little boy and I are sick and so I wasn't able to at the time. I wanted the kit you used for this layout and then I got to the end of your post and saw I will have to go check out all of the kits. lol :) I guess I will have to do some shopping. :)

I love this LO, Eva. I wanted to come tonight, too, but it was supper time so that didn't work out!! Great job, though. Nice picture, too!
