The Paper Variety - 1983

The challenge this week at The Paper Variety is "use a number on your project." I used numbers for the title of this layout of my daughters posing in our yard before the 1983 Cherry Festival Parade. Notice little brother peeking out from the bushes with his arms up too.

When I saw the April sketch from Artful Delight I knew just what picture I wanted to use and what I would use as the banner. Of course it took a bit of cleaning to find the icicle banner. This is the view from my kitchen window in February of this year.

The challenge at The Paper Variety this week was flowers. "Add a flower or a bunch to your paper project. One of challenges this month at Scrappin N Chattin is to use a 5 x 7 photo. I combined the two and made this layout of my children from 1983.

The Paper Variety - Siblings

The challenge at The Paper Variety is the above picture inspiration.

Instead of following the rain theme, I took the colors (some of my favorites) and made the above layout featuring my mother-in-law and her younger sisters and brother. Since I had titled a layout "siblings" in negative last week I used the cut letters on this layout. I also used a sheet of the new "Lemon Flower" pad from DCWV that I purchased yesterday.

This is my take on the sketch from Once Upon A Sketch. The challenge also included handwritten journaling of at least 25 words. This is my favorite picture of my mother-in-law's aunt because my mother-in-law's mother is seen thru the window.  I titled it "peek" in negative and double layered the butterflies to continue the peeking theme. 


Here is my take on the sketch that is challenge #40 at Papercraft Star. I turned the sketch 90 degrees to fit the pictures.

Scrap Our Stash - March results

Yeah - I did good this month (after failing miserably in January and February). Purchased some silver glitter for 60 cents because I only had gold which didn't work with my project, and some embellishments at Goodwill and Michaels - spent under $2 total of those AND I know exactly what pictures these will go with, didn't buy just cuz I like them. The best part is I made 27 layouts in March. I even used up all the funky adhesives I had - the partial ones I had picked up at yard sales and Goodwill. Hop over to LaLa's World to sign up for April and check out how everyone did in March.
