Scrapbook Challenge

Happiness Found

Fruity, Glittery, Pink


Hi everyone. Welcome back to my blog! This time I bring you a very pink layout that features a selfie I took on a day I liked my makeup. Does anybody else do that? I also like the shirt I as wearing that day. It has little cats.


I did something different this time where I chose my background paper at random and tailored the rest of the page to fit around it. I ended up with a pink striped paper from the Everyday Tango stack by My Mind’s Eye. It was a fun challenge because we all buy those paper packs and end up with the weird print that we never end up using. I will definitely be using this method again! From there I raided my stash for paper scraps and embellishments that matched the color scheme.

This page was created for Scrap The Girls September layout challenge. I flipped the sketch for my vertical photo used both acrylic paint and Mod Podge mixed with glitter to replicate the splotches in the sketch.


This layout was also created for Lasting Memories September challenge where the prompt was “fruit.” I specifically chose I patterned paper featuring green apples from my collection of paper scraps. I’ve probably had these scraps for over 10 years and can’t even remember the original project I used the paper for. It’s amazing what I find in my scrap stash! However, this paper fits perfectly since the shade of green is a great math to the details in my background paper and definitely represents “fruit” on the layout.
