January LOAD #36 & #37 - Baby Beach

We had a great lazy Saturday and I was able to finish another two-page layout for the January LOAD (LayOut A Day) for January over at Let's Scrap!


I used a Let's Scrap sketch for this one, 1-12-11. Here is the sketch:
1-12-11

I also played along with the January Challenge over at WW1 (White With 1). Their challenge was to use the following color scheme with White and a summer photo.  These are our photos from our summer vacation in Aruba.


Another challenge I played with was Scrap for Help's January challenge below. I used string to help create the life preserver that I created with my cricut.  It is the first time I've played along with Scrap for Help. You should head over and check it out!


I combined a lot of challenges for this layout. Another one was the challenge over at Let's Get Sketchy. Their  challenge for January week 5 was to a create a layout using a picture that you never thought you would use because its blurred, too dark, head half cut off, red eye....etc. I loved these photos of my DH getting ready to snorkel for his first time, but I didn't realize the lens was all fogged up. All three photos that I used of DH snorkeling (on the right) are blurry and the two larger ones on the right are zoomed too far out.  I really wanted to document how much fun DH had during his first snorkeling adventure, so I am glad I used these photos. It was a great challenge that got me to scrap photos I normally would not.

Finally, I played along with Quick Quotes - Friday Challenge 23: to include a banner. I created my banner using Maya Road chip board, covering it with pattern paper, sanding the edges, and then adding ric rack and glitter letter stickers.



Here's an up close look at my journaling:


Materials used:  paper - Far and Away & Echo Park (This&That); brads - MME; chipboard - Maya Road, letter stickers - the Paper Studio; quickutz - Mini Khaki; ric rack - Wrights; journaling cards - unknown; life preserver - Cricut (Life's a Beach); and string - Darice Inc.

I hope to have a lazy scrappy Sunday and get another layout completed today! I hope you've had a scrappy weekend!  Thanks for visiting!
