I did this layout for two challenges this week.
I did the CSI case #2. I found this site to have some interesting takes on challenges. You are to use color and pick prompts for embellishments and journaling.
I used flowers, swirls and I embossed the raspberry paper with a brick texture.
I also used the Fabulous Fridays prompt to use acrylic, vellum or a transparency at Frosted Designs. The transparency I chose went really well with the color scheme for the CSI case.
I was also inspired by Erika at Club CK to scrap a story that you don't have photos for. The only photos I have of this even are the ones in my memory. In order to not lose such a cute memory, I wanted to scrap it. I went out and bought a melon so I would have some relevant photo, lol. I am very glad to have someone encourage me to get that memory out of my head and in my scrapbook!
The story is about one of Kayla's first adventures driving solo. I was setting up for a big BBQ and we needed to get 3 watermelons. We sent Kayla because she could drive now. When she came back, she just walked in the house and said the melons were in the van. I walked out to see that she had placed each melon in its own bucket seat and fastened the seatbelts around each one of them. I was probably one of the cutest things I've seen!
