Challenge 2a - Champions On Ice

This whole ScRaP SiStaZ thing has me so motivated to scrap! scrap! scrap! Granted, it's only week two, so the motivation may run out at some point. But for now, I am LOVING it!!

For Challenge 2a, I had wanted to scrapbook Liam's 5th birthday party at the Tigers game, but I could not find the photos due to my big jumble-y mess of a photo storage system pre-2006. So, I scrapped a more recent topic, instead. Kev, Jordyn, & Liam ice skating on our lake earlier this month. How CURRENT of me!!

I gave Liam two choices for the title:
  • Hillarys on Ice
  • Champions on Ice

He chose Champions.

Champions on Ice - Double Layout

Champions on Ice - Left side of layout

Champions on Ice - Ride side of layout

I liked scrapping this topic, because I was able to use the same colors as the inspiration layout, so it took the guesswork out for me. If you'll notice, I used the exact same CTMH (plug! for Kim) light blue snowflake patterned paper as the inspiration layout (didn't realize that until I had made my decision on what papers to use).

Other products I used:

  • Snowflake brads (Recollection) bought at Michael's specifically for this project...go to Michael's to exchange a broken paper punch, come out $27 later. Oy!
  • Vellum snowflake stickers adhered to the photos themselves (also bought specifically for this project)
  • Marvy 2" square punch (exchanged the broken one at Michael's for one that works!)
  • Amy's cast off dark blue snow flake patterned paper
  • Ice Skates die cut / thingy's (Jolee's) - I already had these on hand, imagine that! Amazing what you can find in your stash if you just LOOK!

So excited to do Challenges 1b & 2b!!
