Use Up Those Scraps!

If you go to Practical Scrappers this week, you'll find that the DT created layouts using scraps this week. This is the DT layout I submitted - and yep, it's all scraps! I'll tell you some more about it.

First of all, those pictures are priceless to me. Those are pictures of me at 1 and 2 years old. In the center, I put a picture of my Shane at 18 months old. This layout will go in my heritage book.

I used scraps of Emporium paper from CTMH. You know, those 1/2" - 1" pieces you cut off that you don't know what you'll do with anyway if you save them. That is how I created the background for the pictures that actually looks much like a piece of paper from that packet. The elements on the top of the page are pieces that I saved because they are big and interesting. I didn't know I would be making patterned paper from them at one point, but that's what these scraps did! Covered in Liquid Glass, these make a very nice top to the page. All the mats and little pieces of cardstock came from my scrap basket. You have one, don't you?

I challenge you this week to make a layout completely from scraps. When you are done, post it with Mr. Linky on the Practical Scrappers blog. Let everyone see your fabulous work!

Brenda, this is stunning! I adore these two papers together. Your photos are precious, so is the idea to add Shane's. You created a beautiful page for your heritage album.
