Scrapology - January Layout Challenge

Happy New Year! The Scrapology Design Team have started the New Year by scraplifting a layout by Michelle Unruh (also known as Momma-paparazzi). I love Michelle's style of scrapbooking and really enjoyed using her layout as inspiration.

As an added challenge this month the team all used badges (button badges) on their layouts.


For my layout I used a photograph of Lara taken a few year ago on a very snowy New Year shortly after she had lost her two front teeth.

I used mainly patterned papers from Fancy Pants Designs Frosted Collection and other scraps from my scrap bag. I embelished the page with some very old Heidi Swapp clear acrylic snowflakes, a piece of lace, a scattering of crystals, decorative pins, chipboard shapes, journalling sticker, a journalling tag downloaded from the Silhouette Studio, fabric flower, elastic thread, adhesive lettering and some badges and wood veneer shapes.

Here is Michelle's original layout (go have a look at her blog for more gorgeous layouts) ......


..... and here;s Lynn's sketch.


There's a great prize up for grabs at Scrapology this month so hop on over and find out how you can win.
