Weekend Challenge - Blind Scrapping Recipe!

This weekend I have a blind scrapping challenge for you.

You will need a 5 x 7 photo (portrait)
2x3 photo x 2 (portrait)
Cardstock for background
1 piece of pattened paper cut into a 10 inch circle or a circle die cut paper
1 piece of co-ordinated paper cut into a 4 inch square
1 strip 8 inches x ½ inch patterned paper
Embellishments to suit layout
Flowers, hat pin, alphabets, ribbon, and the like

Cut 1/3 off the bottom of your circle - then adhere on the cardstock approx ½ inch from the top of the page.

Take your 4 inch squared piece of paper and cut into a shaped journalling box
I use the background of a Jenni Bowlin Button to trace around for mine - you could use a chipboard bracket to make the edges of your box, or simply use a scallop punch.

Adhere this square to your circle die cut, on the left so that it just overlaps the edge of your layout.

Place your 5 x 7 photo - so that it just overlaps this shaped box. Then place your two smaller photos, so the tops of the photo overlap the bottom of the shaped box.

Now take the 8 inch strip and place across the bottom of your photos and cover where the base of the circle meets the cardstock.

Now it is time to make the layout your own - using alphas, flowers and the rest of your embellishments.

Make a cluster of flowers, and embellishments on the right hand lower corner of your photo.  Place your title along the bottom of your photos. Add any further embellishments to make this layout yours!

Here are a couple of sneak peeks of my layout - which features the June Designer Kit and will be revealed in the Newsletter

Share your layouts in the MAY CHALLENGE GALLERY by Midnight Sunday Night to be in the draw for the prize at the end of May.
