National Scrapbook Day was a blast! I hope you all had as much fun as I did. I'm going to be sharing the layouts I made, one challenge at a time. The first challenge was to use polka dots and this sketch:
I've been wanting to do a layout like this for a long, long time. Like most families, we use a lot of invented words that are meaningless to others. Most are things Trevor said when he was learning to talk. Years later, all three of us still say yips instead of chapstick and hamaloni instead of summer sausage. I'm really happy with how this layout turned out and that the story is now in the album.
There were five people who played along with Challenge 1. It's great fun to see how each person interpreted the sketch and made it work for their story. I can see the sketch in all of them, but they're all quite different. Click the link below each to visit their blog or gallery.
