Happy NSD and A Challenge Entry


Some of you know that I really enjoy Gloria Stengel's challenge blog, Craft Hoarders Anonymous. And because I do, I squeezed in a project to enter just before the deadline. It gave me an excuse to print a couple of photos of my youngest daughter's trip to Europe and make a layout. She and a couple of friends took a few weeks off from work and have gone to London England, two or three places in Italy (one being Rome), Germany, and are currently in Amsterdam.

The current challenge  at Craft Hoarders Anonymous is a sketch with a twist - which is to use something old and something new. Well, all the paper I used is old. I've had it for a couple of yearsby now. It's Prima's Almanac. The ribbon is new, the photos are very new as my daughter is still over there, and the bling is new. Well, new to me.

To the left is the sketch from CHA. It can be used for any kind of project you wish!

I ended up putting two extra small
photos on the LO than indicated in the sketch, but I tried to make the three one unit. At the top of the larger photo you see a tag peeking out from behind. This can be pulled out and has some journaling on it.

I have a couple of detail photos for you.

This photo shows the details of tearing, curling, inking and painting with ink and water.

And this one just shows the pull out tag and circle element from the sketch to which I added some bling (one of my new elements on the project).

Thank you for stopping by to have a look at my layout entry, and go check out Gloria's challenge blog Craft Hoarders Anonymous. It's open to cards, layouts, and more! This reminds me that I made a video of my Challenge #4 prize package to share with you. I should find it and post it.

Happy papercrafting!
