This is the layout for the "Roast Dinner" challenge and is for the album of my daughter's wedding which took place in 2005. I would not have thought I putting this page together like this and am really pleased with the result. The photo is small but I like it - far better than the 4 x 6 colour photo I had planned to use for this page of the album. We had to use a 5 cm x 28 cm piece of non-traditional scrapbooking item behind the photo and I chose to use two strips of packaging tape with had white stripes in it. For the title we had to use three different alphas. Also the three different sized butterflies was a requirement along with the pleated ribbon which I had never done before.
This past weekend I took part in a cyber crop at Scrap Boutique which is a forum I recently joined. I liked two of the challenges. One was a sketch and the other a "Roast Dinner" - it was like a Blind Scrap where you are given the list of requirements and then the directions of where to place things on the page but you don't get to see the hosts sample page until after others complete their pages.
This first page is what I created for the sketch challenge and is for an album of a holiday my family took way back in 1996. The background paper behind the photos is a photo of hot coals I found on the web and printed out.
