Whoooo hoooo!!! We made it! Here we are at the final day of our month-long scrapbooking challenge. Thanks to everyone for your kind comments on my pages, and give yourself a round of applause if you participated alongside my 2013 Scrapbooking Summer School attendees!
Even if you didn't hit the magic number of 31 pages completed, if you made any progress at all, got yourself organized, ordered essentials, or stashed inspiration for when you DO have time later this year--be proud! You are taking steps to preserve your family's memories and traditions and just plain cuteness for years to come. Your kids will be delighted to have their faces off the memory stick and into a book. Good for you!
So, I guess we're not really done until I post the final page, right? I went really modern with this layout, a style I don't normally embrace because it's not practical for most types of scrapbooking people do, where the objective is to fit as many photos as possible on the page. But, it leaves room for tons of journaling, and uses up a lot of scraps, so this style of layout has it's uses. And it uses Gorgeous Grunge, so I'm all over that! The scraps are from the Sweater Weather Designer Series paper stack, and I also used the Season of Style washi tape and the Happy Day stamp set for some unexpected vintage-inspired elements like the lace doily stamped near the headline, and the flourishy brackets on the photo mat.
Don't forget that you have until midnight CST tonight to leave a comment to enter to win the ASTOUNDINGLY AWESOME BLOG CANDY I am giving away this week to celebrate the end of the series! One lucky person will receive my sample page of every single layout we made in Scrapbooking Summer School.
