Scrapbook Challenges

Studio Calico has had a plethora of sales and great kits of late. As a result my stash is growing and my output has failed to match this. Fortunately there are a number of great challenges taking place on the boards at present and I am determined to kill a couple of kits this week!

I have just completed my first challenge which was to create a layout from your oldest kit. Embarrassingly this was from Boardwalk - the first kit I ever bought back in August 2010. I love this kit in the main although I have found some of the Basic Grey patterned paper quite challenging to use!

I used Shimelle Laine's Starting Point from last week which I loved. The layout came together really quickly and I ended up abandoning the thought of embellishing it as I really liked the focus on the photos and the colours and patterns in the paper.

Anyway here is the finished product.

The photo is from our trip to Tokyo last year and it amazes me to see the changes in Scarlett over that time. She only started walking a couple of months before this photo was taken and she was pretty confident in her abilities by this stage. This is also one of the few photos actually in focus from this holiday as she was in constant motion!
