You are growing up so fast, you are becoming a BLUR

Completed another challenge for SCRAP U:


I just loved this photo and when I found this quote, I knew it was perfect !

Our challenge was to follow a Choreographer (I.e. Scraplift a layout we liked from the Scrap U gallery).

I created this layout based on Cathy Sanders "Pre School Assignment #1"...(I just had to flip her layout as my photo was portrait and not landscape). Loved her layout and this worked so well.

We received extra points for "MOVEMENT" on the layout... My "movement" on this layout is created by the "blur" effect of the photo...

I stamped the title using 2 different colors of paint mixed randomly and then brush stroked the same color all over the page. I then went over the title with a finepoint marker to show the outline of the word BLUR. I used my DYMO machine with leftover pattern paper and sanded it over lightly to get the words to show through.

Earned points for Cathy and some extra ones for me too on this assignment. Tags were part of the pack of papers we received. All part of Kaisers new Secret Bird Society collection. (http://www.kaisercraft.net/products/collections/secret-bird-society.html)

Created my flower by pleating a scrap of left over pattern paper. I decided to only use half a flower seeing as it is a boy page after all.. LOL

I used my CHARITY scrap kit left overs for this layout, and they worked so well. The colors were perfect for my photo and there was enough paper left to create this layout with ease. I am not normally a paint girl, but I think it worked rather well here.

On the right side of the layout, I wet the edge and rolled it to create a frayed edge.
Loved the Making Memories brads that they gave us in the kit, so made use of those on my layout.

Thanks for looking and h
ave a good week !
Hugs, Mich
