Last weekend, I participated in an online crop with Victoria Marie Designs. The theme was Crafty Mysteries and everything was Halloween-inspired. I love Halloween, but I'm up to date with my Halloween scrapping (until the 31st when I take new photos). So I had to make the challenges work for the photos I had. Fortunately, Victoria is very flexible when it comes to what counts for her challenges!
The first page I completed was this:
Trevor has always loved birds of all kinds (second only to rabbits). When he was young, my mom had him select a bird to adopt from the Alaska Raptor Center in Sitka. Since then, it's become a tradition for him to select a different species the following year. The adoption packet includes a poster of the raptor-in-residence, which Trevor hangs in his bedroom. I scanned the posters, used PicMonkey to put group pairs on a 4"x6" print, then cut them apart to make the layout.
I'd originally intended submit this layout to the GHOST Acrostic Challenge (G is for green, H is for heart, O is for owl, S is for stripes, and T is for tiny title), but I ended up making a different GHOST layout. So this one is now entered in the Traditions Challenge. I'm really happy with the finished page.
