Happy National Scrapbook Day! Did you participate in any activities or events to celebrate? I did! Well, I only made a layout but I did something right?
Today I made a layout for Elle's Studio Sketch Thursday challenge. I believe I recently discovered Elle's Studio via Paper Issues. Lately I've been wanting to participate in challenges to get me motivated to scrap. it's been working!
I printed some Instagram pictures using an app on my iPhone called Postal Pix. This is my first go at printing Instagram pictures. I'll give a review of Postal Pix tomorrow.
Story of the layout
We went to the beach a few weeks ago (yes, it has been toasty in SoCal lately...sorry midwest and east coast ladies!). I took plenty of pictures of my daughter *discovering* the beach. She loved it until she face planted and literally ate sand. Poor thing but it was pretty funny.
And guess what......I pulled out the sewing machine again! I sewed on my layout again. This time it came out great!
Well, great to me since this is like the third time I have ever done this before. The stitch came out pretty straight. Yay me!
I used DCWV's Surf's Up Stack and Recollections open stock paper. I got the Polaroid frame from LuScapandCrafts (a freebie!). I had to convert the file to an SVG. The stamp is Sandy Toes from Pink by Design. I handcut the triangles on the banner. Oh and I sewed them...yes I did!
