First Scrap Page



Yes, everyone another first for me. It was inspired by the triple challenge at StuckOnUSketches with the sketch shown below,
                                          

then at Practical Scrappers they wanted you to use at least three ribbons and at Frosted Design they wanted Owls on your project. I know this may seem strange but I instantly thought of this picture of my eldest Dragon - Alex when she was 4 months old sitting in her Bumbo and looking at a book!!! Her wide eyes remind me of an Owl.


The Owls are from the Polka Doodles CD Rom - Jingle Jangles. The remaining elements are from Summer Driggs - Happy Halloween and Moments except for the piece with the journaling on this was from a Shabby Princess kit called Spontaneous Delights.


Alex is now 5 and really loves reading and is coming on so well I am really proud of her - but this photo will show her that her interest in books started at an early age!!!!
The word wise is made up of four fonts which you can find here as follows - W = JFWildwood, I = Mister Vampire, S = Frestyle Script (Word font) and E = Fairytale.

The other challenges I am entering this page in are : =

ABC Challenge - G is for Green,

Charisma Cardz - No backing papers,

La La Land Challenge - Ribbon,

Artful Inkables - use a technique you have never used before

Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - Anything but a Card, and

The Corrosive Challenge - No cards.

I hope you like this creation and please let me know in your comments.

Hugs

Hi Ali,
Wow, what a gorgeous page you have made here. Doesn't she look sweet - I can see what you mean about the eyes!! There is another challenge you could enter this for which was to do something you haven't tried before - damned if I can remember which one it was though. If I remember I'll pop back and let you know.
Hugs

Terrificly sweet...isn't that bumbo great? I would die if I didn't have it for Ave since she is almost a year old and still can't sit on her own!

Hi Ali - what an adorable layout - fab first page.

I use a cuttlebug, which works really well my only complaint is it isnt very wide not sure if the Wizard is wider, if it isnt then cuttlebug is fine havent found any dies that you cant use yet.
