I am going to improve my scrapbooking skills by finding and entering cool scrapbook challenges! I was inspired to make a layout for Sketchy Thursdays tonight. I am super happy with how it turned out, although I don't usually use quite so much ephemera...
I used paper, tags, and stickers from Echo Park's "For the Record" collection (so fun!!), distressing ink, flowers, sparkly gems, buttons and decorative tape. It took forever, and I tried a number of variations on things before committing to it!
The photo is from my 2004 trip to New York City. It was a high-school graduation present from my parents... my mom, my favorite cousin, my aunt and I all went to NYC for a few days. It was super awesome. Here, my cousin and I are posing with the so-called Naked Cowboy in Times Square.
I am trying to find more scrapbook challenge blogs! Any ideas? As always, tips and critiques on my scrapbook projects is greatly appreciated.
