These are your 3 challenges:
- Use a repeating motif on your page. (I used crosses.)
- Do some sort of fussy cutting on your page.
- Celebrate something you did as a child.
I made these pages using both our brand new "Twin Falls" scrapbooking kit and pocket page kit. (You can view them here.)
Here is my mini 6" x 8" scrapbook page:
I had so many embellishments and papers - and a darling gray speckled alphabet - to choose from, it was hard to decide where to start. Since I was working with a black-and-white photo, I decided to keep my color palette minimal.
My 6" x 8" Handbook album is the format I've used for my PL for a few years now. I generally have a small "mini" scrapbooking layout facing a page with 3" x 4" cards or 4" x 6" cards.
It's always fun going home to where I grew up but I have to admit it's even more fun when I see my daughter doing the same things that I did when I was young. This is part of your challenge: celebrate something you did as a child! (Don't you just go aargh! when you have a typo. I always go with the flow though.)
Here are a couple of close-ups.
