These photos, however, go beyond even my normal imperfect photos. I have had them printed and in my scrap bag for at least four months. I have been avoiding them. I didn't know what to do with them, how to work with them, but I knew I wanted to record the day. It took two challenges to get my to finally put these photos on paper. The current sketch challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles with the twist to include at least one star on your layout
and the color challenge at Heart 2 Heart to use the CTMH colors Lagoon, Pear and Sunset.
This sketch was fun. I appreciated the way it featured the patterned papers. It was no stretch for me to add stars which are one of my favorite embellishments. I cut these with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge by CTMH and then stamped with a coordinating stamp set.
I enjoyed that the sketch had two different journaling spaces. Underneath the photo I wrote the story of the day and the train ride that the kids just had to take at the museum. This was the story I wanted to record. The process of creating the layout, however, led me to the title:
Flawed photos scrapped. Memory perfectly recorded in spite of the photos. One happy scrapper.
Thanks for the challenges!
