I'm Guest Designer!!!

Recently I participated in a Survivor-style scrapbooking contest at Personal Scrapper. I made it into the top four and part of my "parting gift" was the opportunity to be Guest Designer one month. My month was July and I had SO MUCH fun working with their kit using the "Glad Rags" paper line by Paper Salon. My kits always include double cardstock, so I was able to complete 10 layouts (one a 2-pager) and a card.

"Thankful for family" was the last layout I finished. I used up many of my scraps from the kit for this one using pics from Thanksgiving '06. The photos never went with traditional fall/Thanksgiving papers. I love them with these Paper Salon papers. "Older & Wiser" has some hidden journaling on a tag that talks about my recent need for reading glasses.

I enjoyed hand-stitching part of my title for "build a friend". That was a new technique for me! I think I will try it more often. I love the look.
For "Celebrate One Year Older" I used a Making Memories die cut paper as a template on my striped paper.
I'll share the other layouts soon.
