A Very Special Day

Check out the new challenge over at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge . All you have to do is base your page on this sketch - it can be about any topic that you like.

  For this page I also used the colour combo from the new challenge out at Frosted designs:

You may notice the similarities between this page and the page that I shared below 'New Look Bedroom'. That would be because I based them both on this sketch. I really like the way I could interpret the sketch to include a huge journaling block and I had a lot to say about both pages! This time I made the page look a little more 'formal' by typing out the journaling (you can also fit even more on that way lol).
For this page I used Heide Swapp and Pink Paislee papers. Some of my tags and the cute 'Polaroid' style frame below my smaller photo are from the 'Snap' line of products by Simple Stories. These are designed for their 'Snap' memory files but they are great additions to ordinary LOs as well.
I cut my title and that cool arrow with my Cameo and used the font 'mom's typewriter (which I love) for my journaling.
If you are looking for an easy challenge this month then this is one to try both at AFSC for the sketch and at Frosted designs for the colour combo - gotta love a challenge where you can choose your own topic!
Have a great weekend where ever you are xx
