I made it through to the fourth round of the scrapbook tournament, each round fifty percent of the contestants from each group stay on for the next challenge. This time it was a double page layout, at least eight photographs, at least three hidden elements on the page, no ink (including spray ink and misting ink), no paint of any sort, no stamps, no gesso, no chalk. I think I missed ink and chalk the most in this round, I like to define the edges more on my paper elements but I can always add them after the contest.
I decided to use photographs of our grandson, he was one recently. The close up photographs were taken my my very talented friend, Cheryl, she owns Feelgood photos and kindly let me use them in my layout. She also took the photograph of Bobby with his camera smile!
I have made all of my layouts this year from supplies I already own, I would have liked to use some little boy papers but I managed with what I had. All of the bunting was hand cut - I don't think I will be using any more for a long time!
The fist hidden element is under the left hand photograph, when you pull the tab at the top a photograph appears at the top and bottom on a sliding mechanism.
The second hidden element is a pull up flap under the two smaller photographs, there are two more photos that pop up underneath.
The third element is under the right photograph, it has a pop up birthday cake, tiny bunting and a photograph of Bobby opening his present from us.
I would like to get through again, obviously but if nothing else it has made me scrapbook again and I am thoroughly enjoying myself.
