123 May challenge
For the May challenge at 123, the challenge is to use the following in a layout:
I thought quite a while about this one, I don't love to use banners. I had no shortage of baby photos, we have had a baby explosion in our family, lol. But I just don't love banners! Don't know why, they look so cute, I love it when I see how other scrappers use them, but I feel I struggle with them.
Anyway I finally bit the bullet, and pulled together a layout. I am not sure if I love it, but that's what challenges are for, to challenge our thinking.
So, I was actually inspired by the chenille image in the challenge graphic, and I have quite a bit of chenille in my stash, so thought I would use that with some flannel fabric to make my banner,. I ran the banner under my photo, it looked right there. I've used my beige in the cardstock and in the Charms Creations heart embellishment, and the flannel fabric. I have certainly used baby - in my title and the photo plus the journalling. I guess I have met the requirements of the challenge - still not sure if I love it. The little chippy bear is a Scrap FX design.
Thanks for looking at my layout, and any comments you may leave.
