Paradise Player and a Scrapbook Page!?!

Make sure to click here for our blog candy post!

I haven't scrapbooked in EONS.

Not since I discovered stamping and cardmaking.

But when I received the sketch for this week's Playing in Paradise challenge (I won Paradise Player on this post), I knew I wanted to use it with a photo.


I dug out a picture of my niece and went to work creating an 8 x 10 to fit a frame.

Unfortunately, I started adhering things together before getting a good look at the whole picture.  It's not as perfect as I would like it to be but still cute!


Maybe I'll add a bit of journaling to the bottom.

Thanks for stopping by!

Adorable photo! Love your take on the sketch. I am the same with you, I was passionate about scrapbooking and once I started making cards, it's rare that I scrapbook!
