Scrapology Layout Challenge - Y is for Yarn

Thanks to anyone who crossed their fingers yesterday for the dance competition. Unfortunately Lara's school didn't win but they had a fun day and their performance was great. Such wonderful memories created.

This month on Scrapology, the team chose a stunning layout by Gabrielle Polloco as it's inspiration and challenge readers to also take inspiration from the layout and incorporate YARN in their layout.

I decided to scrapbook a photo of my youngest son taken 8 years ago whilst we were strawberry picking. 

I used patterned papers from Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer Collection as well as a jounalling card, title strip and cardstock stickers also from the collection. The 'PYO Sweet & Juicy Strawberries' picture was downloaded from the internet and I think it co-ordinated with the Simple Stories papers perfectly. For my yarn I pulled some threads from a piece of hessian and used this to make some bunting, tie on a button and also to tie the title strip to the layout. To add some dimension to the layout the title strip was mounted on 3D foam and I cut the cloud from the strip and mounted this on some more foam. 

My layout is very different from Gabrielle's original layout and probably more like the sketch which is also available as inspiration.

Gabrilelle's layout .................

Once again there will be a fabulous prize for the challenge winner so hop on over to Scrapology and join in the fun.
