This is a layout I completed for a Bingo challenge over at Let's Get Sketchy. This week there is a challenge to make a layout using one of the lines on a Bingo card that has elements you must include on your page. I used the second line across: Journal strips (on the bottom with the kids' names and date), 3 photos, flowers, buttons, punch. Since I still haven't gotten any border punches, I used a 1 inch circle punch to make 2 circles (from the black & white stars paper) up on the top left by the "JOY" tags. I cut the word "Noel" out of a piece of Little Yellow Bicycle Making Merry paper and adhered it to the green dots paper using 3D foam squares to give it some dimension. Using the two words on the page "Joy" and "Noel" seemed like an appropriate title for this page of my beautiful kiddos. These pics were taken last Christmas (2012).
I also am combining this challenge with 2 challenges over at A Cherry on Top. First, I'm using it for the Scraplift the Guest designer challenge. Lisa/ScrappyDistractions is this month's Guest Designer, and so the challenge is to lift one of her layouts. So this layout follows and is inspired by hers.
I am also combining this challenge with Lisa's Guest Designer Challenge #1 - 3x3x3 wherein you have to follow her directions of the following: at least 3 pics, at least 3 diff PP, at least 3 kinds of embellishments.
