Hello scrapbookers. Today I'm sharing a layout created using more of my stash and I'm linking it to the "family" challenge over at The Studio Challenge Blog . One of the things I tried to drill into my little ones heads when they were growing up was that we will face enough obstacles out in the world. We will meet un-kind people and people who may hurt or feelings .... and that is why we shouldn't have that in our home. It should be a place where we feel secure and loved unconditionally. And I wondered if this was even getting through to them at times, with all the disagreements they had. But now .... as young adults I'm seeing that they are better friends, support one another and give each other advice during difficult times ... just maybe it did make a difference. : )
The Studio Challenge Blog post their challenges twice a month but you have til the end of the month to complete the projects. The second post this month was a sketch challenge HERE. It's a little different than a lot of challenge blogs. Instead of link to the actual challenge post, the link system is over on the side bar. Very talented DT with lots of inspiration over there!!
My most used tool ...
Besides my paper trimmer, my most used took is definitely my deckled scissors. I LOVE them and think they finish off edges so pretty. And they are the star on this layout. So I had the layout pretty much finished, but it just needed something else. It was mounted on red cardstock with straight edges all the way around. So I decided creating a frame with the deckled scissors would finish it off nicely. I trimmed 12 x 12 strips of the red cardstock down with the deckled scissors, ink the edges and then adhered them around the outside edge of the layout. Then I cut the corners from red cardstock.
What is your most used tool???
Have a great day!!
