I’m participating in The Lilypad’s Month of Challenges this month. I’m excited to stretch creatively, and really want to knock out a bunch of summer pages.
These were made with Just Jaimee’s January 2014 Storyteller collection. I’ll be using this kit for as many challenges as I can. I used it on all six pages that I’ve done for MOC, and I’m nowhere near using everything.
The next challenge was to do a 2 pager. I’ve gotten a lot of practice doing 2 page LO’s with Project Life the past 2 years, so this one was easy. Very time consuming though. I used this DYY template set from Lynn-Marie. You can hide different layers to create dozens of different configurations. It’s super clean and pretty, and I will probably use them a ton.
Ideally I’d like to scrap the individual places in most of these photos, but in case I don’t, it’ll be nice to have them in a big spread. I just wrote a little overview of our trip. I was super into putting words on my instagram pictures this summer, so I had to mention that too.
Journaling reads- This is the first leg of our Epic Summer Road Trip 2013. We drove from West Palm, up through Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina, and into Virginia. We got to our destination in Richmond about 18 hours after we started. It was a long day, but we had a good time. I documented our journey using the A Beautiful Mess app and Instagram.
For the next challenge, we were supposed to take inspiration from a book. It was a good challenge for me, because I remember thinking of the book Make Way for Ducklings the day we took these pictures. I used colors and layout design that were similar to the book cover.
Journaling reads- This summer could have been known as the Summer of Ducklings. We were slightly obsessed with these little fluffballs. It all started one afternoon when Jason called me and said “Come outside!”. I was confused. “Are you home?” “Yes, come outside and hurry!”. Charles and I put on our shoes and ran outside. Into the rain. That’s when I started to worry, because my husband hates being outside in the rain. When we went down, we saw this croud of tiny ducklings splashing around in the puddles. It was the cutest thing ever! These were some daredevil ducks too. They would cross the street in front of cars, all in a line just like in the children’s book. I didn’t know ducks really did that!
The last LO I did was for a cluster challenge. I was really inspired by the LO’s I saw in the double page thread, so I did another 2 pager using a panorama photo I took with Little Man. It was fun showing him the trick where you can make your subject look multiplied. What could be cuter than three of him?
I’m still a couple of pages behind, but I’ve also done a few CT LO’s that I’ll share next week. I’m sure this will be my most productive month of scrapping ever!
