Challenge 11a- Adenoid Acation

Another challenging ScRap SiStaZ challenge - 11a!! But, I was able to scrap a topic that I have wanted to scrap for a while now. With out these challenges, I'm not sure when (or IF, really) I ever would have scrapped it!!

Some observations about the process and the products used:
  1. I totally scraplifted Kim's version of this challenge. I had more photos that I wanted to include than what the original challenge had in it. Then I recalled that Kim's version used a bunch of photos. So, when I put my layout together, I was really copying Kim's layout. Similar color scheme, too!! Thanks Kim!
  2. I'm SO glad I blogged about this surgery! It made writing the journaling for this layout a SNAP!
  3. Too bad printing the journaling wasn't as easy as writing it. You can see here that it printed out crooked. I couldn't flip it over and print it again on the back because I had already tried to print it once and got GOBBLDY-GOOK printed all over it. So this was already my second attempt. And I wasn't going to waste another sheet of cardstock to try and print it a 3rd time. Come to think of it, I don't even know if I had another sheet of the same cardstock.
  4. When I printed my wallets, they printed out at 2.5 x 3.5. The wallets in this layout need to be 2 x 3. So, I had to trim all of them down. At first I freaked out that I wouldn't be able to crop them that much, but it worked out. That's on of the reasons why this challenge was so challenging!!
  5. I used another Chatterbox kit for the paper, brads, alpha stickers, circle embellie sticker. LOVE KITS! (have I mentioned that?)
  6. I used the Cricut Cuttin' Up cartridge for the capital A's in my title.

Yes, I was all about adding more photos to this layout :)

Great Page! Love the stripes/colors.

I love taking my blogging and adding right to a page. I did that for my MS Ride page.

Yes you have mentioned that you love kits :)
