Scrapology - October Challenge

scToday the October challenge was launched on Scrapology. Here is my layout.

The layout we lifted was by Lynn Biermann, her blog is called Pretty Paper Swirls. This was Lynn's layout

And this was the sketch to go with the layout.

I decided to be a bit different and rather than use 8 circular embelishments, I used 8 circular photos of Lara showing her 8 summer holidays. For my layout I used papers from Fancy Pants, alphabet stickers from BasicGrey, tiny alphabet stickers from Adornit, Swirls cut on my Craft Robo, self adhesive pearls and flowers punched with my Nellie Snellen punch (love that punch!)

Please do pop along to Scrapology and have a look at all the teams layouts and maybe have a go at the layout yourself with the chance of winning a prize.

I just love your take on this Karen, such and inspired idea to use photographs. What a fantastic memory too.

Good job the DT can't enter the competition 'cos I think this would win hands down :)
