So Very Proud

This is my entry for class two of Bad Girl's Top Designer. The goal was to use a minimum of two patterened papers. For me, this layout was all about simpliticity and letting the moment speak for itself. It was a reflection of a time and age - when life was so simple and sweet and wonderful and innocent. Because of it's simplicity, I doubt it will be the one to get me to round three but at least TD got me scrapping again. Let's hope it sticks! A total of 4 patterened papers were used - 2 of which were home made. I used a website template to create primary paper in which I attempted my very best school-worthy writing to journal with. The second home made pattern paper was also downloaded from the internet and printed on cardstock. I then had my nephew colour the animals and write his name. He was given two papers 'just in case' and wound up doing them both. I cut out the animals of the second paper (I even cut out where he went out of the lines) and used pop-up dots to add dimension to the page.

Well well well... I must say that the simplicity and bright colours of this page are PERFECTLY delightful in my eyes. But you had to know that, right?! ;)

Good luck in Round 2. I love it, and I think it shows a lot of creativity and a great eye for design... I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
