Digital Scapbooking Day
This might be the best weekend of the year. We turn the clocks back and it's also DSD a/k/a Digital Scrapbooking Day! There are sales, freebies, challenges, and all sorts of fun stuff going on in digi land this weekend. I got a chance to participate in Speed Scrap yesterday at Pixels and Co and the layout above is what I came up with. I was having some trouble following the instructions. There was supposed to be a thin strip of patterned paper down the left side. I kept trying paper after paper and wasn't happy with any of them so I decided to "hide" the strip and work on the rest. Once I got rid of the strip... loved it!
Here are a few more pages I've done recently that I haven't shared on the blog yet
When I waitressed in college I remember the first time someone ordered iced coffee. I was told to fill a glass with ice, then pour in hot coffee from the coffee pot, then keep adding ice. I like coffee but this just seemed like it would be so watered down. Why bother? This summer I read an article about "authentic" iced coffee which is made like sun tea, letting the grinds steep in cold water for several hours. I tried it, and it's so good! It's strong and has no bitterness that can come from hot water brewing. So I had to scrap it.
This one was for a challenge to use a photo as a background. Believe it or not, this is a phone photo!
And this record player, which she calls a "vinyl player", was a favorite present from my daughter's 14th birthday.
For this one I used a layered template called Lots To Say which gives room for a lot of journaling and as you can see I had a long story to tell of a crazy day of travel softball.
Thanks for hanging in there with me for a long, layout filled post!
